Begin your trip by cycling into the peaceful surrounding countryside of meadows, wooden bridges and windswept reeds and rushes. Visit the museum in the pretty village of Monnickendam explaining the history of this extraordinary cultural landscape. Then cycle up the shore of Lake Markermeer to friendly Volendam where the quaint stone houses in the distinctive heart of town seem to have been drawn up without an organized street plan. "De Dijk”, overlooking the harbour, is lined with souvenir shops, pavement cafes and restaurants. Just around the corner is the pretty village of Edam.

At the end of the day, you’ll reach the lovely, historical town of Hoorn.
