All along the way, you will enjoy excellent meals and a comfortable hut on a passenger ship, where you can also spend the entire day relaxing if you do not feel like cycling for a change.

All aboard!

Boarding on the first day of your journey is in Bruges, the ‘pearl of Flanders’, around 14:00. Meet the crew, your fellow travellers, and spend the evening exploring this pleasant town. The next morning, you will cycle towards the historic city of Gent, then move on past the Zeeschelde towards St-Amands. After a comfortable night in your cabin, the next day will see you visiting the magnificent port city of Antwerp.

The windmills of Kinderdijk

Day five continues the journey towards Holland, with visits to such Zeeland towns as Tholen and Willemstad. Next, you will cycle on to one of Holland’s most ancient cities, Dordrecht. And of course, no journey of this kind would be complete without a visit to the beautiful windmills of Kinderdijk! The subsequent night will be spent in Vianen, a handsome fortress town near Utrecht.

…and the canals of Amsterdam

The journey’s final stages will take you along the Vecht river, through a gorgeous natural landscape full of magnificent castles and manors, to Amsterdam. Here, in the historic capital of Holland, you will have ample opportunity to enjoy its splendid architecture, its canals and museums, and of course its pleasant and convivial cafes and restaurants. Finally, after breakfast on day eight, the time will have come to say your farewells: the journey ends there.
