    Explore the scenic Waterside District on the outskirts of Amsterdam city in a bike. This countryside bike tour will take you by beautiful paths across a nature reserve full of green pastures, countless brooks, waterways and century-old villages.

    A local guide will lead the way and reveal the history and folklores of the region.
