7 Top Outdoor Activities to do in the Netherlands

Want to get the adrenaline rush this summer? Looking forward to spending an adventurous time in the Netherlands? 

While the Netherlands is home to some of the fascinating museums in the world, there's a lot more that you can do in the county rather than just visiting museums or enjoying feasts. Here are some activities adventure lovers must try when visiting the Netherlands: 


Due to the geographical location, the Netherlands has a lot of beaches where you can have a great time, windsurfing and kitesurfing. The beaches there are great for water sports as well. 

And don’t forget to enjoy mud walking on the Texel beach. 

Bungee or Parachute Jumping

Imagine jumping from 60m above sea level! You can enjoy the exhilarating aerial view of bungee jumping from the Scheveningen beach. 

For Parachute Jumping, you can jump from as high as 13,000 feet. It's going to be crazy, but definitely a phenomenal experience and check off another adventurous activity from your list. 

Ice Skating on Dutch Canals

You don’t want to miss out on enjoying the serene view of the canals. In winters, often when the temperature drops to zero, the water over the canals freezes and it is one of the most exciting experiences to skate over the frozen ice.

It doesn’t happen every year, so if you're lucky enough to see it happening around, don't miss the opportunity!

Cycling on the Mountains

The Dutch love to cycle! Mountain cycling is another outdoor activity that you should try out. Although the Netherlands isn't a very hilly area, the Dutch prefer to cycle across the hilly slopes rather than on flat surfaces. The trails can go along serene parks, canals and you can enjoy the view while cycling.

Visit the Countryside

Imagine going to the Netherlands but not seeing the windmills, vegetation, and greenery. What a miss that’d be. If you want to have a spiritual retreat, then don't even think twice before going to the forests, hearing the birds chirping, and just being close to mother nature for a while and sailing on the boats there.

You can book taxi services to visit the countryside.

Flower Fields

The flower fields of the Netherlands are truly magical. It's too refreshing to see fields of tulips, daffodils, and crocuses. There are over a hundred new varieties of flowers introduced every year. The best time to visit the Keukenhof flower park is during April.
