For the duration of this cycling holiday you will reside at Het Rechthuis Hotel in the village of Muiderberg. Find peace and tranquillity in this lovely area nestled in between Het Gooi nature reserve and the Vecht Region boasting lakes and the meandering River Vecht. Within cycling distance you will discover the star-shaped fortifications of the town of Naarden, as well as Muiden Castle and Naarden Lake. Surrounded by two areas of woodland, the village has a countryside-feel to it although in actual fact it is quite central, near to Amsterdam and Almere. It is in an ideal location for cyclists to make several interesting day trips. During your stay, you can choose from a number of different bicycle routes.
Free parking at the hotel (no reservation required). If you plan to arrive by public transport, you should be aware that the town of Muiderberg doesn’t have a train station. There’s a bus service for the last 30 minutes of your journey.
Oostvaardersplassen wetland is nature at its purest, a rare thing in this country. It developed all by itself when it was left alone by man after Flevo Polder was reclaimed from the sea in 1968. Although, it is relatively young for a reserve, it is undoubtedly unique, precious and beautiful. With a surface area of 6000 hectares it is the largest wetland in the country. The rough grasslands are grazed by hundreds of Konik ponies, roe deer and Heck cattle.
The landscape between the cities of Amsterdam and Utrecht is wet, typically Dutch, and dotted with picturesque villages. Experience the wide-open countryside and wonderful lake vistas. The emptiness of the space around you - sometimes reaching to the horizon – and the huge skies above, give one a joyous feeling of freedom. Along the banks of meandering River Vecht you will reach the village of Weesp, a place you won’t want to miss.
Set off for Naarden, one of the best-preserved fortified towns in Europe. Proceed to the polder: Arkemheen-Eemland. You’ll be amazed by the extreme openness of this unique landscape characterized by peat meadows. Further on, heather fields at the wood’s edge make for a kind of bocage landscape that is quite captivating. How wonderful to be able to cycle back to your hotel in these natural surroundings.
You head back home today. The tour will end after breakfast.

...Naarden is very interesting, worthwhile to stop there a few hours. Hotel was just about ok, quite basic and with room for improvement. The food however was excellent and the location perfect...
... Please pass on my thanks to all at Dutch Bike Tours for all the help in arranging such a great holiday. The hotel was first rate. Location great. Bikes superb. Routes were fantastic including the self operated chain ferry on day three. Will probably be contacting you again to organise another short break...
