Inline-skating tours in Holland
Question: Are there any inline-skating tours available? Maybe in wine country or something of that nature?

Adventure Adviser: The only company in the world that runs inline-skate tours, according to their own brochure, is Zephyr Inline Skate Tours based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This year, their first year of business, they are offering only one tour — to the northern Friesland area of the Netherlands. In Holland, according to Zephyr, there are “fantastic skating paths that connect a series of quaint towns loaded with European charm.”

Each day you can expect to cover approximately 15 to 25 miles, which can take you anywhere from two to 10 hours, depending on how much you want to stop and tip-toe through the tulips. You’ll spend the rest of your time exploring tile factories, museums, and other staples of Danish culture.

The seven-day tour’s dates for this summer are August 30-September 5, and September 15-21. The land-only price is $1,665. For wine country tours, be on the lookout for Zephyr’s new tours. They are planning to spread their wings and offer new trips in California, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and the Washington D.C. area. They also have a tentative trip to Austria on their
schedule. Call Zephyr at 888-758-8687 for more details.
