Suydersee Tour

 

 

Amsterdam – Hoorn

(Sunday  6 Miles – 10 km)

Arrival on board the Elodie in Amsterdam. Introduction to the crew, explanation of the rules on board, information on the programme. We sail from the Eastern Dock to the river IJ and through the Oranje locks over the Markermeer to Hoorn. After dinner, we take a short cycle trip through this former VOC (United East-Indies Company) town. This is a good test to see whether all of the bicycles are adjusted to everyone’s wishes.We spend the night in this harbour under the watchful eyes of the “Cabin boys of Bontekoe” at the foot of the defence towers built in 1532. 

 

Hoorn – Enkhuizen – Stavoren 

(Monday  19 Miles – 25 km)

A relatively short cycle trip today, from Hoorn to Enkhuizen. You can spend some time visiting the Open Air museum of Enkhuizen where you get a good impression of life around the former, now reclaimed Zuyder Zee. The town centre of Enkhuizen breathes a historic ambiance, and with its many small shops and narrow streets this town makes a very agreeable impression. You are expected on board again at 16.00 hrs for the crossing of the IJsselmeer. After the evening meal, we take a stroll along the dike in Stavoren and with a little bit of luck you can enjoy a beautiful sunset!

 

Stavoren – Hindeloopen – Workum – Heeg

 (Tuesday 22 Miles – 35 km)

After breakfast you cycle to Hindeloopen. Here you will be able to admire the Hindeloopen painting artistry, and we pay a visit to one of the many studios. Art is given yet more attention today because once in Workum we cannot just walk past the Jopie Huisman Museum. On our arrival in Heeg the Elodie is waiting for us at a beautiful spot on the Fleussen where the many yachts offer a wonderful spectacle.

 

Heeg – Ossenzijl – Giethoorn

(wednesday  25 Miles – 40 km)

We depart early on the Elodie for a trip across the Friese lakes, canals and small waterways on the way to the Linthorst Horman lock where we put our cycles on the quayside.  You cycle through the Weerribben nature reserve to Blokzijl. Here we pay a visit to the old pirate stronghold. We visit too the delicatessen of Harrie Klinkert and then go to Kaatje by the lock. On our cycles once again, we make our way to Giethoorn, where before or after our evening meal there is the possibility to take a trip on a real Giethoorn punt through the Venice of the North.

 

Giethoorn – Genemuiden – Kampen – Elburg

(Thursday  25 Miles – 40 km)

In the morning, directly by cycle from Giethoorn through the Wieden to Zwartsluis, and with the ferry to Genemuiden, where we will spend some time in this picturesque town situated at the estuary of the river IJssel. Then further, straight through the polder across the Kamper Zeedijk to IJsselmuiden where we cross the river IJssel. We pay a visit to the Hanzestad Kampen with its Koggeschip. In the past, the rivers and seas were sailed with this type of ship in search of trade. The simplicity of such a ship will amaze you. Together on the cycle to the Roggebot lock, the last stage today on the way to the Elodie that lies awaiting you here. We sail a short distance from here over the randmeren to Elburg.

 

Elburg – Harderwijk – Almere

(Friday 25 Miles – 40 km)

Today we make a woods and heather journey. After a visit to Elburg, we depart over the Elspeterheide to Harderwijk. On the way there is a fine opportunity to have an extended picnic in the heather. On arrival in Harderwijk, we put the bicycles on board and go into the town. Harderwijk has many narrow streets and alleyways with surprisingly pleasant spots. It is a charming town. After this visit we depart on the Elodie to the youngest province, Flevoland, where we will spend the night in Almere.

 

Almere – Amsterdam

(Saturday)

The ship will probably be sailing when you awake because we depart very early in the direction of Amsterdam. As you breakfast on the way, you can watch the landscape pass by. We sail along the fort island of Pampus to the Oranje locks and arrive at about ten-thirty in Amsterdam. A fine opportunity to visit another museum such as the Rembrandt House or the Rijks Museum, but perhaps you would like to take a boat trip along the canals. Of course you can also savour the atmosphere of Amsterdam, just doing nothing on a sidewalk café. In the evening you can choose a restaurant to you liking out of the many good restaurant you can find in Amsterdam. 

 

Amsterdam

(Sunday)

We take leave of you after breakfast.
