And if you happen to not feel like cycling for a day, stay aboard the ship and relax as you are ferried to the next destination!

All aboard

You will board the ship around 14:00 on the first day and meet your fellow passengers and crew. The ship will leave the same evening, sailing through Het Twiske nature reserve towards Zaandam, where in the morning you will visit the Zaanse Schans with its gorgeous windmills, ancient wooden houses and cheese and clog makers. You will also have the opportunity to visit Haarlem and see its Grote Markt square, St. Bavo cathedral and the Frans Hals museum.

Keukenhof and flower auction

After a wonderful night in your cabin, you will next visit Keukenhof, where a spectacle of millions of bulbs in flower awaits you. The ship will pick you up again by the gorgeous Westeinder lakes, and you will have a variety of cycling trips in the splendid surroundings to choose from. The next morning is one for early rising, because the enormous flower auction in Aalsmeer, where flowers are traded in the early hours of the day, awaits your visit.

Flower market and canal cruise in Amsterdam

The visit to the flower auction will be followed by an elaborate lunch as the ship sails back to Amsterdam. The last stretch to the capital takes place by bicycle, after which you are free to explore Amsterdam and enjoy the sights of the flower market, for instance, or a canal cruise. The following day is the day where you bid farewell to the crew and disembark with many fresh memories of a unique experience.
