Ride off the Eurotunnel fresh and ready for a wonderful few days of exploring the Tulip fields of Holland including the option to visit the Keukenhof gardens. You’ll be riding between overnight stops in Haarlem, Nijmegan and Monschau, where you will enjoy the beautiful and historically rich towns, their lively cultural scene and excellent dining opportunities. Haarlem is at the centre of the Dutch flower-growing district and is a main export point for flower bulbs. Not far from the famous Keukenhof gardens and flower fields of Lisse and Hillegom, the city is a great base for visitors to the Netherlands to see the tulips in full bloom.

Nijmagen claims to being the oldest city in the Netherlands and recently celebrated its two thousand year anniversary whilst Monschau, laying just over the boarder in the Eifel region of Germany, with its 12th Century castle, ancient walls, a medieval townscape with idyllic half-timbered houses, narrow streets and cobblestones, is the ideal place to relax and spoil yourselves.

Your final night will be spent in the French town of Cambrai, with its large town square and cafe's set around its perimeter, coupled with the 19th century Town Hall and 17th century Cathedral, all makes for a bustling atmosphere most days. Here we will enjoy dinner and drinks together reflecting on the highlights of the trip.

The following day you have a short ride to Calais to meet your early afternoon train back to Folkestone and home.
