Great experience in a beautiful part of Holland

26 Aug 2023


This was our first boat-bike trip and it was everything we imagined. We chose northern Holland because we wanted quiet, nature, small villages, and no crowds or city riding. We loved the mix of wooded paths, dikes, dunes, coastal routes and village roads. Every day was different. Most of the 90 passengers were Dutch or German and over age 60. Only a handful of kids onboard. Evenings were quiet, in the lounge or on the sun deck, and there wasn’t much to do but it’s a canal boat not a cruise ship and we were quite happy with that. Our twin suite was as spacious as a hotel room. Definitely worth paying a little extra. Also splurged on e-bikes because while the routes were mostly flat the winds were something else. Food was tasty and there was lots of it. We missed one port because a storm kept us from crossing the Ijsselmeer but went to a naval museum and submarine in Den Helder instead and were quite happy with our choice. Definitely one of our best bike trips and would recommend highly!
