We begin our adventure by hopping on our bikes and exploring Amsterdam's quaint and unique streets, taking in sights such as the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum. Leaving the city, we pedal on paved trails past dunes, beach resorts, windmills and rustic villages along the North Sea Coast towards Belgium. This is an amazing Teen Bike Camp in Europe!
We ride to Bruges and Ghent, two of the Belgium's most beautiful and historic cities, complete with cobblestone streets and canals. We explore Ghent, famous for a medieval castle first built in 848, known as the Castle of the Counts, in the heart of Ghent. We also give back to this beautiful area by completing a service project in a nature reserve. Full days of biking through the European countryside on Bold Earth's teen bike trip helps us work up a well-deserved appetite for world-famous Belgian chocolate!
Shifting gears, we hop a high speed train to downtown Paris, spending two days visiting all the major sites including the Louvre and Eiffel Tower while experiencing the beauty and culture of Paris. We then celebrate the end of our teen bike tour with a fantastic French meal in the heart of the city and toast to a summer of accomplishment, adventure and friendship!
Biking an average of 20-30 miles per day allows all campers to enjoy the 10 days of riding. Bikes and helmets are included. Campers are fully supported by a van and do not carry their gear.
Bike Amsterdam Paris easily connects with Spain Adventure, Greek Odyssey, Ciao Italy, Ultimate Alps or other European Trips. Time between trips is fully supervised and included at no additional cost. Call our office to discuss our many two trip options.
Bike Amsterdam Paris truly changed my life and my perspective. I met a handful of amazing people through this program and am so excited to continue my relationship with them for years to come. The biking was difficult but after every day I felt so accomplished. Upon finishing this trip I realized how much stronger I am than I thought I was, and I know now that even though things seem difficult I can do them as long as I put my efforts and mind to it.
PARENTS, Michelle & Stanley: The Bold Earth leaders seemed caring and enthusiastic, and worked with us when we had questions. Charlotte had an amazing time and has talked about her experiences daily since she has been home.
