Southeastern Netherlands

Whether this tour takes place will of course depend on Covid conditions at the time. All hotel and new ferry bookings will be made on a fully-refundable basis in case we have to cancel, possibly at short notice.

A tour of the south-eastern part of the Netherlands, travelling out and back on the overnight ferry between Harwich and Hoek van Holland.

The trip starts on the ferry on the evening of Saturday 4th September. We will spend the first few days cycling across the woods and heathlands of Brabant and Limburg (in Belgium and the Netherlands), stopping overnight at the historic market towns of Breda, Turnhout and Hasselt and including two special cycle paths: Cycling though Water and Cycling through the Trees.

On Wednesday we will cycle via Tongeren to Maastricht, and then on Thursday through South Limburg, climbing to the highest point in the country (321m), the Vaalserburg (aka Three Countries' Corner), staying overnight at the smal resort town of Valkenburg-aan-de-Geul. On Friday we'll ride to Sittard and then down to and along the river plain of the Maas Valley to the town of Roermond.

On Saturday we’ll cycle through the Brabant countryside to Weert and maybe on to Eindhoven – at either we can catch the train for our journey back to Hoek van Holland for the overnight boat, arriving in Harwich early on Sunday 12th September.
