Your Own Amsterdam Noord.
A City You Did Not Know About

A bike tour around Amsterdam Noord: innovations, modern architecture and street culture


Discover Northern Amsterdam with Our Unique Bike Tour

Type of tour:
This Amsterdam Noord bike tour would suit those who want to see the city from a completely different perspective: modern, innovative, creative, and a bit anarchic; those who like the idea of combining it with a bike ride and feel like a real Amsterdamer.

There are no humpbacked bridges, 17th-century houses, Red Light District, or canals here. Instead, there is something else that makes the city vibrant and full of ideas and does not allow it to plunge into a steady measured life. Every square meter is packed with fantastic innovations and art clusters, environmental projects, and social initiatives. The caring attitude of the Dutch people towards their centuries-old traditions is surprisingly combined with an irrepressible passion for new technologies and art. Most of these unique places hide from bypassers in abandoned shipyards or former industrial areas. Amsterdam Noord is a real hidden gem only for those who know about it. And therefore even more cherished by the locals.

This bike tour of a completely different Amsterdam might become one of the most unforgettable adventures of your trip to the Netherlands. Shall we do it?

We'll learn how Amsterdam's "pirates" make a living. We'll find where the good spirit of Amsterdam resides. And do you want to leave your graffiti in Amsterdam as a keepsake? That's possible!
