Teams must fly to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Upon arrival, teams must choose a marked car and drive themselves to the Cornelis Lely Monument on the Afsluitdijk, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the Martinitoren in the city of Groningen, where they would find their next clue.

"Who's got strong legs and keen eyes?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must climb to the top of the Martinitoren and count all of the bells in the carillon. When they give the right number, 62, to the carillonneur, they would receive their next clue. If they provide the wrong number, they would have to climb back up to the carillon to count again.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to the village of Virhuizen in De Marne and find the Windmill De Onderneming, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Farmer's Game
Teams must dress in traditional Dutch costumes and ride bicycles to a nearby creek. They must then strip down to their Dutch underwear and swim across. On the other side, they must retrieve a special set of golf clubs and play three holes of Farmersgolf. Team members must take turns with each stroke and finish within par of eight strokes on each hole to receive their next clue.

Gary & Matt, Meghan & Cheyne, and Sam & Dan chose this task.

Choice B: Farmer's Dance
Teams must dress in traditional Dutch costumes and ride bicycles to a nearby country festival, where they would take turns hitting a high striker until one member could successfully hit the bell. They would then enter a dance hall to learn a traditional Dutch folk dance, then perform it in front of a crowd. If the dance is to the instructor's satisfaction, the instructor would give each team member a serving of soused herring, which they must eat in order to receive their next clue.

Brian & Ericka and Flight Time & Big Easy chose this task.

Maria & Tiffany were physically unable to do either side of the Detour, incurring them a 24-hour penalty.

Teams must ride their bicycles to Zoutkamp Harbor to check in.
For coming in first place, Sam & Dan each won a dune buggy.
