Boat and bicycle cruises in Holland

"The most Dutch Way to discover the Netherlands"

The Netherlands: “El Dorado” for cyclists:
Many thousands of kilometres of cycle tracks enable bike travellers to make relaxing and interesting bicycle tours, to explore the most beautiful parts of the country and to visit famous towns and picturesque villages, various sights and other highlights. Discover the best of the Netherlands in eight days by boat and bicycle. Visit places of interest that you would never see during a „regular“ tour by car or coach.

Furthermore, the “Low Lands” are “a barge traveller’s dream”: almost every important city, town or village and most sights and places of interest can be reached when navigating one of the many inland waterways. Water is everywhere and important in daily life of the Dutch.

Our ships and barges sail in a very relaxing pace, through the small canals and rivers. Allowing the passengers to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Docking places are mostly in the very centre of historical towns: the most charming places, sights, museums, and shops are often within walking distance. Our guests can make fantastic excursions, enjoy major tourist highlights and meet “the locals” every day.

Therefore, “Boat and Bike Tours” are an excellent way to explore the most beautiful and interesting regions, towns and cities of the Netherlands. Enjoy cheese and wooden shoes, windmills and waterways, beautiful old towns and romantic villages, cultural highlights and natural beauty in the country of Rembrandt and Van Gogh.

A boat and bicycle cruise in Holland is unique 

Travelling and living on a ship means that your hotel room and restaurant in fact follows you during your tour. This means: no daily change of room, no packing and unpacking of suitcases, yet travelling and visiting highlights every day and staying in different places every night. The friendly and multilingual crew and kitchen staff on board will serve tasty meals.

Our self-guided, individual bike tours are very suitable for those who do not like to bike in a group. Everyone can choose his or her own speed and – obviously – daily tours can be individually arranged or (re)organized according to your personal interests and daily constitution.
On board, you will have many opportunities to meet with other enthusiastic cyclists from various countries. Cruising on our beautiful historical canals means enjoying the rich Dutch cultural heritage, breath taking views of the surrounding scenery and viewing fascinating old cities

In the morning, an extensive Dutch bikers-breakfast will be served and you may make your own packed lunch (sandwiches, fruit, a snack and a drink).

Between 09:00 and 10:00 AM you will leave your ship, which will be sailing to the next meeting place, and in the meantime you will cycle along the most scenic routes. During self-guided tours, with your bicycle map & tour documentation (included), you can plan your own daily tour yourselves or with the crew. En route, various stops can be individually planned for sightseeing and coffee and lunch breaks.

At the end of your bicycle day, the staff will welcome you on board and coffee and tea are available. In the evening, a delicious three-course dinner will be served on board. Drinks (like wine, beer and soft drinks) are available at a small charge in the bar.

Every evening you will have the opportunity to visit and explore a different town or city or to share your experiences with other guests from various countries in the cosy living room, the bar or on the sun deck of your ship.

Daily bicycling distances may vary between approx. 30 and 60 kilometres (18 – 35 miles). Most routes can be reated as „easy“, as major parts of the country are flat. Therefore, our tours are suitable for both experienced, as well as for novice cyclists. 

In fact, we have many very satisfied guests of over 50 years of age, who enjoyed a boat and bike tour very much ! And when you prefer to stay on board for one or more days and enjoy the sailing: no problem!

That is exactly what makes a boat and bike tour so special and what makes it an ideal, active holiday for couples, parties of friends, families, small groups and single travellers.
