It is only in the 17th century, that this area gained ground on the ocean thanks to hundreds of windmills. A lot of them are still working today. Such as the "Zaanse Schans" where windmills and houses revive the old days.

You will ride on the dikes ans quiet cycle paths. Indeed, this northern route takes itineraries in the famous Dutch polders and then in the most beautiful dune area of Netherlands.

Then, you will cross to Texel, an island of thousand flocks with a wonderful natural park that can be discovered by bike. In Enkhuizen, Edam and Voledam, famous port towns from the Golden Age, you will appreciate "the old Holland" atmosphere, costumes, sail boats, country landscapes.

 


Day 1 (Sat): Enkhuizen
Embarkation and check-in where the crew will welcome you on board is from 2 p.m.
near the beautiful center of Enkhuizen and close to the railway station. After unpacking your luggage the skipper will join you for an aperitif before giving you a rundown of what to expect on the journey, details about the ship and also about safety measures to be taken on board. In the evening take a stroll through the historical center of Enkhuizen, a quaint town that was the home of the Dutch merchant fleet during the Golden Age of The Netherlands. Enjoy your first night on board in Enkhuizen on the western bank of the lake IJsselmeer.

Day 2 (Sun): Enkhuizen – Medemblik (24 km/14 mi or 37 km/22 mi.) |
sailing Medemblik – Den Oever – Texel
Today you can cycle the first leg of the trip along the IJsselmeer coast through the beautiful polder landscape to Medemblik. After the cycling tour the ship will sail further to Den Oever. Depending on the weather in the evening the ship will take the lock and sail across the Wadden Sea (part of the North Sea) to the island of Texel.

Day 3 (Mon): Texel, roundtrip from/to Oudeschild (40 km/24 mi. or 46km/28 mi.)
The island of Texel is a cyclist’s dream destination with its varied scenery, well signposted cycle tracks and picturesque villages. Our suggestion is to complete a round trip cycling tour of the largest of the Dutch North Sea islands on the easy-to-follow Thijsse-route (40 km/24 mi.) that takes you via a number of villages, the seal sanctuary station “Ecomare” and a traditional beer brewery near the harbor of Oudeschild.

Day 4 (Tue): Texel – Terschelling (sailing about 5 – 6 hrs.)
Today you will enjoy sailing on your ship, when the tide and the weather are right, to the island of Terschelling. As you sail your way through the sandbanks of the Wadden Sea, keep a lookout for seals on the sandbars. In the afternoon the ship will arrive on Terschelling island, which features a number of picturesque villages situated between the polder and sand dunes along its 30 km expanse. While sailing you will enjoy an extensive lunch on board. No dinner will be served tonight, to enable you to explore the island, but you can make yourself a picnic meal or try one of the nice restaurants
at Terschelling (not incl.).

Day 5 (Wed): Terschelling roundtrip, (cycling distance of your choice) |
sailing Terschelling – Harlingen
While the previous day was all about sailing, today is all about cycling. Terschelling has plenty to offer cycle tourists: nature and culture, 70 km of cycling tracks and 4 beautiful villages. West Terschelling is the largest village on the island and features a number of nice shops and pubs. The standout landmark on the island is the 400 year-old lighthouse “Brandaris” that can be seen from well off in the distance. Also worth visiting is the heath land of “Boschplaat” which will captivate you with its mud, beaches and dunes. You might even spot ducks, black-winged stilts, large colonies of
spoonbills and great black-backed gulls. After a day of cycling, you can relax in comfort once you have arrived on board. In the late afternoon the ship will cross the Wadden Sea sail to Harlingen, the most important harbor city of the province of Friesland.

Day 6 (Thu) Harlingen – Franeker – Makkum (48 km/29 mi. or 58 km/36mi.)
Via Franeker, with the famous planetarium of Eise Eisinga, you cycle through the beautiful wide Frisian countryside along several rural villages to the small harbor of Makkum on the eastern bank of the lake IJsselmeer. If you take the long cycling trip, you will also visit Bolsward, one of the Eleven Frisian Cities.

Day 7 (Fri) Makkum – Stavoren (32 km/19 mi. or 49 km/30 mi.) | sailing to Enkhuizen
From Makkum you will cycle to Stavoren. The short tour leads you via the old trading town of Hindeloopen. This local art of painting – a type of traditional decorative painting – is quite famous. Apart from this you’ll find the First Frisian Museum of Ice Skating in Hindeloopen. The long tour runs along several Frisian lakes and shows you a different type of landscape. From Stavoren the ship will set sail to cross the
IJsselmeer to Enkhuizen in the late afternoon.
