The tour leads well through low-lying polders - reclaimed lakes and marshlands, bordered by dikes and waterways, and set since medieval times - overlooking the peaty grasslands and beautiful extensive bulb fields, with narcissuses, hyacinths and/or tulips in (full) bloom in many colors.
A Dutch lunch will be served halfway the tour in the historic railway station of the village of Lisse. The centre of the bulb fields.
After lunch, continue via the “Leidse Trekvaart”, and row northbound to the ancient city of Haarlem. Through the canals of Haarlem, one reaches the Spaarne River, and then turns south to get back to Het Spaarne clubhouse. Total length of the tour is approx. 29 km.
Upon request we arrange passenger-traffic by cars between our clubhouse/Heemstede and Rijnland clubhouse Leidenschendam.
The programme starts from KR&ZV Het Spaarne’s clubhouse (Heemstede) at 09:30 am.
