Travel story and photo contest

You’re welcome to join!

Do you have nice stories and pictures from your trip with Boat Bike Tours? We’re always looking for beautiful, surprising photos and travel stories that describe the Boat Bike Tours experience. It could be a travelogue, anecdote or poem, or atmospheric shots of cyclists on the road (even in a headwind) or happy snaps of guests relaxing on the deck, enjoying a meal together or having fun on an excursion. In short, it can be anything!

How can you send your images and stories?

You can submit your entry to the competition at any time, the prize is drawn each November. Please upload your images online with a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Dropbox or Flickr and send a link to [email protected].

If you don’t want your name mentioned in descriptions, please let us know.

2021 Winners: Photo contest

The winner of our photocontest this year is Ruth Summer from Austria. Ruth sent us this beautiful picture made with her girlfriend Maria Sprenger on the boat and bike tour through the region of Camargue/Provence from Aigues Mortes to Avignon. She told us: “Amazing experiences had been waiting for us, excellent food, beautiful landscapes. We could take wonderful memories back home.”


2020 Winners: Travel story and photo contest

The winner of our 2020 travel story and photo contest is Rena Elzer from Germany! She made a beautiful, fresh photo of a cyclist riding through a quiet landscape on the Northern Tour of Holland. Second prize was won by Kitty Bruno from the Dutch province of Friesland, with her soothing picture of the rising sun over water, on the journey from Amsterdam to Bruges. Third place went to Peter Hebb from Canada, whose photo from a 2019 trip (also from Amsterdam to Bruges) shows exactly why our trips are so unique: no less than six nationalities together at one table! Something that we’re unfortunately all missing in 2020.
