Experience the Netherlands and Belgium by both land and water during a moderately active "bike and barge" tour.

Discover the best that Belgium and the Netherlands have to offer on a memorable journey combining a relaxing seven-night barge cruise aboard the intimate M.S. Magnifique II, with daily optional bike tours. Take advantage of the gentle, even terrain of the Low Countries as you cruise or pedal along pastoral canals, passing storybook Flemish villages, fortified towns, and sophisticated lock systems.

Visit Bruges, Ghent, and Antwerp to discover the outstanding art, architecture, and gastronomy of the region. Explore Kinderdijk, a UNESCO-listed series of iconic windmills, and the world-renowned cheese market in Gouda. Tour the beautifully restored rooms and gardens of the 17th-century Het Loo Palace, former summer residence of the Dutch royal family. Other highlights include a visit to a silversmith's workshop in Schoonhoven and a bike ride through De Hoge Veluwe National Park, home to an array of plant and animal life.
