The Netherlands and Belgium by bike from Amsterdam on the Anna Antal




Day 1 - Amsterdam - Oude-Wetering - 15 km

Boarding at 2:00 p.m. at the latest on the Anna Antal. The boat must leave the plaza at 2.15pm due to the opening hours of the bridges and / or locks. After your boarding on the boat, installation in your cabin. This will be an opportunity to meet your guide, the captain, the crew and, of course, the other passengers.


Day 2 - Oude-Wetering - Gouda - 45km


From Uithoorn, the journey continues in the Green Heart along canal paths and along polders towards the famous cheese town of Gouda.
When we think of the town of Gouda, we only think of cheese, but there is much more: Local craftsman of pipes, syrup wafers, earthenware, painted stained glass, as well as a town hall in the magical aspect without forgetting of course, the incomparable canals.



Day 3 - Gouda - Dordrecht - 40km


Ride along the Dutch IJssel and Krimpenerwaard, the lowest polder in the Netherlands, on narrow cycle paths towards the Lek river which we will cross to continue to Kinderdijk by taking the ferry. You arrive at the famous windmills of Kinderdijk, this is the largest concentration of historic windmills.
After a nice excursion through the Alblasserwaard polder, you reach the shore of the "Merwede" (Beneden-Merwede).

This morning you will sail during the breakfast towards the Delta of the great rivers. You will have the option of reducing the stage by sailing to Bruinisse where you can join the group. You will continue the route by bicycle to Zierikzee with a visit to the "Watersnoodmuseum" (Flood Museum).
Zierikzee is a beautiful town and the center of mussel culture. Zeeland mussels are known around the world.


Day 5 - Zierikzee - Middelburg - 50km


You cycle towards the North Sea, up to the Eastern Scheldt Dam which includes huge slides that can be lowered in the event of strong storms or high tides and thus protect the south-eastern Netherlands against the sea.

Oosterscheldekering is sometimes called the eighth wonder of the world.

After the dam, your route continues to Middelburg, passing through the picturesque town of Veere.
Old houses and churches, a Gothic-style town hall make Middelburg a pleasant city. You can also see the Roosevelt Academy.


Day 6 - Middelburg -  Ghent - 45km


It's the day of the great crossing!
Belgium is no longer very far.
Pass through a region of small villages, coves and winding dykes, before arriving at the Belgian-Dutch border at Sas de Gand (Sas van Gent), the old gateway to the port of Ghent.
If you choose the shorter bike stage, this is where you get on. As you cruise, you can observe the bustling traffic in the canal from Ghent to Terneuzen, as well as huge industrial complexes on the banks before arriving in Ghent. From the quay, you can easily go by tram to the medieval center of this resplendent city.


Day 7 - Ghent - Bruges - 45km


In the morning we will cycle through Ghent city center towards the scenic Leie region and the tranquil East Flanders countryside.
The region is characterized by forests and meadows, small villages and castles.
The last part of this route will take you from Aalterburg (the short stage) to Bruges via the old towpath along the Ghent-Ostend canal which is the oldest canal in Belgium.
The beautiful city of Bruges marks the end of your cycling and boat trip. In the afternoon and evening you can visit the old medieval center. You will definitely want to stay there one more day.
