During this active cruise aboard the Wapen fan Fryslân - a comfortable two-masted schooner - you'll visit the IJsselmeercoast. During the days, the program features an individual bike tour, a stretch of sailing to the next port or both. On board, there is plenty opportunity to relax as well - there's a very comforatble bar /lounge, a large diningroom, seating and even a jacuzzi on deck and not to mention your very comfortable cabin.

The trip will start and end in Amsterdam.
The exact route depends on the weather, but the following itinerary is aimed for:

Day 1: Amsterdam - Volendam
Boarding between 13:00 and 14:00. After checking in the ship will leave and sail (by engine) to Monnickendam or Volendam. From here we make the first bike ride through the natur reserve 'Waterland'.
Cycletour: approx. 10 km

Day 2: Volendam - Hoorn
We start the day with a visit and demonstration in a cheese farm and wooden shoe factory. Then we cycle over the dike to Purmerend. After Purmerend we cycle to Edam, where we will make a city walk. Afterwards we cycle to Volendam, where the ship has moored. After dinner, a walk through Volendam can be made, but late at night the ship leaves for Hoorn.
Cycletour: approx. 36 or 50 km

Day 3: Hoorn - Enkhuizen
Today's bike ride takes us to Enkhuizen. We cycle along the mill 'De Krijgsman', the highest windmill in North Holland. Enkhuizen was one of the richest cities in Holland in the 17th century. This was mainly due to the import of expensive spices. Today we still see this richness in the stately mansions and the city wall.
Cycletour: approx. 26 or 39 km

Day 4: Enkhuizen - Stavoren
Under suitable weather conditions the ship sails over the IJsselmeer to Stavoren. After arrival we cycle to Hindeloopen, one of the Frisian eleven cities. From Hindeloopen we cycle to Workum where you have the opportunity to visit the Jopie Huisman museum. This museum is the work and life Jopie Huisman, a dedicated to realism Frisian painter.
Cycletour: approx. 25 or 37 km

Day 5: Stavoren - Lemmer
Today's bike tour goes over the dike along the IJsselmeer and through the beautiful Gaasterland. We make a stop in Sloten, the smallest of the eleven cities. Here you can stroll through the canals and enjoy the lunch break. Then we cycle the last stage to Lemmer.
Cycletour: approx. 33 or 40 km

Day 6: Lemmer - Urk
In the morning we sail across the IJsselmeer to the port of Urk. In Urk you may stroll through the narrow streets and alleys. The houses in this picturesque fishing village were built close to one another on elevated grounds to protect them against the water, and that is still visible today. In the afternoon a short optional bike ride is planned through the Northeast polder (Noordoostpolder).
Cycletour: approx. 25 km (loop)

Day 7: Urk- Lelystad - Blocq van Kuffelen - Amsterdam
After breakfast you’ll debark for your last half day of cycling. Your last bike ride btings you to the Oostvaardersplassen. The route through this relatively new nature reserve is very varied. One moment you cycle through the forest and the next moment you will be surprised by panoramas over vast grass and swamp areas. After the bike ride a sailing trip of approx. 2 hours will bring us back to Amsterdam
Cycletour: approx 20 or 28 km

Day 8: Amsterdam - check out
After breakfast you will check out before 9:30.
