All aboard!

You will board the ship in Bruges, spending the night and enjoying a wonderful dinner and breakfast. After some time to relax and meet your travel companions, it’s time to get on your bicycle and follow Belgium’s oldest canal towards Gent. Spend the evening exploring this beautiful medieval city - don’t forget to see the Belfort and St. Baafs cathedral with its famous triptych painted by Jan van Eyck, it’s extraordinary!

Discover Antwerp and Gent

Early Sunday morning you will cycle through the old center of Ghent. After coffee you will leave for a nice day along one of the most beautiful rivers of Europe: the Scheldt. After approximately 20 km you’ll reach Wetteren, a nice Flemish city which is well known for its rose nurseries. But also a good place to learn what the Belgium word ‘staminee’ means. Berlare is the last place before Dendermonde so it’s a perfect place to taste some Belgian beer before you board the ship again. Your boarding place for today is Dendermonde, a city which is known for the legend of the Beiaart. From Dendermonde you’ll sail to quiet village of St. Amand were you will spend the night.

Artistic Amsterdam

The cycle tour continues towards Holland, taking you to the historic town of Gorinchem. You will cycle along the beautiful River Vecht, passing wonderful castles. The route then takes you through the beautiful landscapes of Holland’s ‘green heart’ towards Amsterdam, final destination and versatile cultural capital of Holland, and overflowing with wonderful museums. Before you get there, though, you will visit a traditional cheese farm and see many beautiful Dutch villages.
