Bike accommodation

There is a wide range of accommodation in Holland including hotels and bed & breakfasts. And, more importantly for cyclists, there is always a variety of choices within one day's cycling.

Tulip Cycling books accommodation according to your particular preferences and budget. Over the years we have built up an excellent relationship with many hotels and B&B establishments in the Netherlands. Some of them are very well known, while others are what we call our ‘hidden treasures’.

We focus on accommodation that has an attractive, authentic setting in the countryside or in a historic part of a town or village and is good value for money. While business hotels are generally of good quality, Tulip Cycling tends to avoid them as they often lack the atmosphere and scenic location that we look for our customers.

While working up your appetite on your cycling adventure, you can look forward to enjoying a meal or traditional ‘home-made’ Dutch fare. From village to town to city, you will find inexpensive places to eat during your Dutch bike tour. A large variety of ethnic establishments as well as the more trendy and exclusive restaurants. Because there is such a wide variety of eating possibilities, only on request Tulip Cycling arrange half-board reservations. You can so easily choose your own restaurant for lunch and dinner wherever you are, or perhaps experience an unexpected 'culinary pearl'.
You could try some original Dutch specialties, including salted herring, mussels, pancakes, sweet pastries and great cheeses.

The Dutch drink a lot of tea and coffee, which are served at more or less fixed times. You may like to enjoy a small, but strong cup of coffee along with a piece of apple pie or Dutch pastry.

Late afternoon is usually the time for an alcoholic drink, or 'borrel' as the Dutch call it. A glass of one of the famous Dutch beers perhaps, a nip of Genever (Dutch gin), or a glass of wine or sherry, usually accompanied by cheese, nuts, or crackers.

The favourite snack with the borrel is 'bitterballen', deep-fried breaded meat balls, eaten on a stick and dipped into mild mustard.

Tissot family, USA
A wonderful trip!!! Thanks to Peter for all his help to make it so special (and for convincing me to do the trip without a tour group). We had such a great time. My two 10 year old girls had such a great fun (and were proud of their accomplishment). It is a of a trip we will all remember. Thanks for everything! I’ve already recommended you to friends.
Sharon Moore
Just returned from our fabulous journey from Amsterdam to Bruges. It was outstanding! The itinerary, the equipment (bikes, GPS, maps, etc.) and our guide Peter were fantastic. Peter really have deep knowledge of his country, what a memorable ride across the Netherlands.
Brigitte and Francois
Thank you for everything. We packed lots of memories into this trip. It was a grand way to learn about Netherlands and see what a cultured and friendly place it is.
The GPS was essential, and we are so glad we learned to use it. Everytime, we wondered where is Peter taking us? We would come across a canal, field of flowers, quaint village, spectacular scenery. Thank you so much.
Susan and Billy Hobart
You run a very professional organization and we look forward to more tours in the future. You have made us biking enthusiasts.

My wife and I just finished a 4 day self guided tour. It was fabulous! Tulip planned a route that we never could have found on our own. The equipment and handling of our luggage made everything easy. We loved the trip!!
Bob Brownson
Thank you Tulip Cycling for a exciting and scenic 5 day tour through part of your beautiful country. Peter’s meticulous organisation and first class equipment made our ride a memorable one.
Geoff and Bethany Canberra Australia
Our friends recommended this cycling trip for my 50th birthday and it was a fabulous celebration-- by far the best family vacation we’ve ever taken! The route Peter crafted for us was perfect-- so beautiful! The hotels were quaint, food was delicious. And our 11 and 12 year old loved riding tandem. I cried when we had to go home. We’ve talked about this trip for months... can’t wait to return. A 5-star experience!
Jane and Mark
The trip overall was our favorite vacation we've ever taken. We feel privileged to have visited. As a lifelong cyclist, it was like visiting the promised land.

Tulip Cycling just got better!
We do a weeks self guided tour with Tulip Cycling every year and have now been cycling for 9 years each time in a different area of this lovely country.
John and Christine Widdowson, UK
Our trip with you was fantastic....and we've told many others about it. The GPS made it unique.
Martens family, USA
We have recommended your business to many people – as we had a terrific cycling trip, due to your professional organisation and fabulous path routing. The GPS was brilliant and the route really showcased the variety of experiences available in the Netherlands – there is no better way to see a country than through the eyes of a local.
Thank you, again.
Richard Lewis
It was truly an extraordinary journey, where everything was carefully prepared by you and your staff.
We were enchanted by the landscapes of flower fields, windmills, canals, small towns and by the kindness with which we were treated by the Dutch people. It was really unforgettable days that make us want to return, and invite our friends as well.
Emerson de Carvalho
Tailor made tour for 3 days of cycling for my husband, me and teenage son! Fantastic bikes, superb organization!!! A fantastic get away and we just had to show up. Lots of opportunity to add in our own stops along the way, the route details, booked hotels and luggage transport made for a stress free journey. Peter is outstanding and lives what he does. Every detail taken care of do you can just get on the bike pedal away with your GPS route!
We did a six day ride in June to mark my 70th birthday. The accommodations were amazing; small, neat, clean hotels and bed and breakfasts. The GPS was a little iffy for us, but Peter always answered our call for a quick fix! I would love to come back and do another ride.
Terry Dickow
Yes, one can DIY a bike trip around the country, but we believe that the depth of knowledge that Tulip provided for our ride took us to and through places that we would not otherwise have experienced just following a map or Google Maps over 16 days. We believe Tulip provided very good value and we recommend them highly.
Julie So
We asked Peter to plan a ride on our tandem from Amsterdam to Ghent, Belgium in 8 days in September 2018. He planned the route, with beautiful maps and excellent GPS, arranged the hotels and the luggage transport. We even go to almost see the King in The Hague.
Only thing he couldn't control was the weather, when a storm blew in from the North Sea. We got a bit wet and wind-blown, but thoroughly enjoyed all of his arrangements.
Dolly Craft
We did the short version of the historic town. It was perfect for us as an American family of four with two teenage kids (13 and 16). If we ever get another chance, we would do it again and probably build in more days to the trip to just enjoy the different towns.
Samantha Pearson
My husband and I did a 1-week tour through parts of the Netherlands in May 2018 and we loved our experience. Peter and Tulip Cycling were amazing! The level of detail and organization is spectacular! Communication with Peter is easy and quick. Our experience was so good that we are returning again next year with a large group! I highly recommend this tour company - you will be very pleased with the service!
Natascha Wesch
We were very happy with your cycling service. The e-bikes and GPS were an excellent choice for us as was your instruction at the outset. The Hanseatic tour was very interesting and the countryside beautiful. We particularly noticed how friendly and helpful the people in Holland are. We also noticed a more positive attitude about cyclists by motorists in Holland compared to motorists in Canada.
