Enkhuizen is 65 km (60 minutes) northwest of Amsterdam. Embarkation from 4pm (bag drop from 11am already possible). During the welcome the skipper tells you with an aperitif all about the upcoming trip. Overnight stay on board in the port of Enkhuizen.
In the pretty harbor town of Enkhuizen with its historic old town you start your first bike ride along the IJsselmeer to the old port of Medemblik and then continue to Den Oever with its small interesting fishing port. Depending on weather conditions the ship goes already today out into the Wadden Sea island of Texel.
The day belongs to one of the largest Dutch North Sea island. Cycle through extensive dune fields and picturesque villages, follow the well signposted Thijsseroute (about 40 km) and visit the seal breeding station EcoMare.
Today we are sailing! In about 5-6 hours we will reach our destination today, the island of Terschelling, also known as the "Amsterdam of the Wadden Sea". Look forward to a lovely village that still retains much of its original charm.
Lots of nature and culture offers today's round trip to Terschelling. 70 km cycling paths, four beautiful villages, West-Terschelling, the largest town on the island with plenty of shops and pubs and the 400 year old lighthouse waiting to be discovered. In the late afternoon you will sail to Harlingen.
After breakfast you cycle via Franeker, with its famous planetarium from Eise Eisinga through the wonderful, spacious Frisian landscape to Makkum. Makkum is located on the eastern shore of the IJsselmeer. If you want to take the longer bike ride, visit Bolsward, one of the eleven Frisian cities.
Today you first cycle to Stavoren. If you have chosen the short route, you will cycle through the old trading town of Hindeloopen. The first Frisian skating museum is in Hindeloopen. The longer bike tour takes you along several lakes in the Frisian Lake District and shows you a completely different landscape. After the bike ride you will sail back to Enkhuizen.
Your adventure ends after breakfast with disembarkation in Enkhuizen at 09:30 am.
A Sail & Bike Tour always involves a bit of adventure: on this trip, only the port of embarkation and disembarkation, Enkhuizen, are 100% fixed in advance. The route to be covered depends primarily on the weather and the tides and is determined from day to day. We therefore reserve the right to change the route or the order of the individual stages at any time. The skipper and his crew discuss the possibilities with the guests on a daily basis and will do everything to offer you a varied mix of culture and nature. Let yourself be surprised! Several sections of the route are covered by sailing boat. All distances mentioned are "approximate distances" of the recommended cycle tours. If guests do not wish to cycle on one day, they can relax and stay on board. Program + details subject to change, e.g. for meteorological or nautical reasons.
