Join the Pentagon Ski Club on a Vermont Bicycle Tour (VBT) to the Netherlands. Traveling by bicycle, you’ll inhale the fragrance of a multitude of flowers and salty sea breezes, feast your eyes on the colorful blossoms, and listen to the calls of songbirds. You’ll even get the chance to view Holland’s iconic windmill and dike systems up close. Each exhilarating day is complemented by the leisurely pace of your barge, as it drifts through scenic canals and into the heart of local life. It’s the perfect way to discover the sights, sounds, and aromas of this captivating country.
