The Tuinpad Harenkarspel leads you in 38 kilometers past several remarkably beautiful locations within the former municipality of Harenkarspel (now Municipality of Schagen) in North Holland.

You will also come across features of the rich natural and cultural history that lies in this area. During the bike ride you will notice that Harenkarspel is a charming rural municipality in North Holland, characterized by a lot of open space around fourteen characteristic large and smaller village communities.
This municipality is known for its hospitality as a summer recreation for tourists, who holiday at a reasonable distance from the coast. This area is also called "the gardens behind the dunes". The Tuinderskring Harenkarspel members who have taken the initiative to plan this cycling route, invite you to cycle this 38-kilometer route. In addition to the beautiful sights that the municipality of Harenkarspel has to offer, you also visited the companies that make up this beautiful countryside.
The Tuinderskring companies are very diverse in product and activity, which makes every company worth a visit. In summer you can fully enjoy strawberries, sunflowers, pumpkins, artisanal dairy, organic products, dahlias and tropical anthuriums. You can safely take a day out. In this way, the Tuinderskring hopes to raise awareness of the countryside
