River Maas-Tour

 

Amsterdam – Utrecht – Vianen

(Sunday – 30 km)

Arrival on board the Elodie in Amsterdam. Introduction to the crew, explanation of the rules on board, information on the programme. Sail along the Amsterdam-Rijn canal to Nigtevecht. The cycles go on the quayside here and are adjusted as far as possible to your wishes. Then you cycle along one of our country’s most beautiful rivers, with its many mansions and splendid gardens, to Utrecht. Then the bicycles come on board again because we have another voyage before us to Vianen. In the evening we pay a visit to this town.

 

Vianen – Gorinchem – Heusden

(Monday – 40 km)

From Vianen we cycle through Vijfherenlanden to Leerdam, famous for its glasswork. We will take a look at the glass blowing. The town too is well worth a visit. The river Vecht has the most beautiful houses, but the river Linge along which we cycle certainly has the most beautiful nature. We arrive in Gorinchem, a charming town on the river Waal. After a visit, you embark again for a boat trip to Heusden. If you haven’t  yet cycled enough, you can make a splendid cycle trip along this last part as well. We organise a tour round Heusden, and this is where we spend the night too.

 

Heusden – Cuijck

(Tuesday 40 km)

Today we cover some 85 kilometres by cycle and by boat. We begin with a voyage along the rivers Bergse Maas and the Maas to Marcharen where the cycles are put on the quayside again. From here you cycle past Maasbommel and Batenburgh. This town is more than a thousand years old and has in its entirety been declared a protected town area. We will also visit Grave, established by Mr van Cuyk around a castle, and Ravensteyn. Now we arrive in Limburg, and the first town where we spend the night is Cuijck on the banks of the river Maas.

 

Cuijck – Broekhuizen

(Wednesday 50 km)

This day offers a magnificent river Maas cycle route. You cycle along the Maas valley to Afferden and Heyen.  The trip continues past the recreational area Leuken-Bergerheide to Well where we find Well castle with its heavy round brick tower dating from the 14th century. From Well, we cycle several kilometres further through the Maas valley to Arcen. The famous castle gardens of Arcen here reveal their beauty in scents and colours. Broekhuizen is the rose cultivation centre of the Netherlands, and we spend the night in the middle of this haven of rest and beauty.

 

Broekhuizen – Venlo – Roermond

(Thursday – 60 km)

Via the Broekhuizen ferry we cycle to Meldersloo and then arrive in Grubbenvorst. Here one finds the ruins of the broken castle where the “Witte Joffer” is doomed to howl about her infidelity in love. Hopefully we will not meet her as her appearance prophesises calamity. On the Nunhemmerheide we visit the St. Ursula windmill dating from 1600. It is the only mill in Western Europe where oil is still obtained from rapeseed.

Arrival in Roermond where we spend the night within walking distance of the town centre.

 

Roermond – Born – Maastricht

(Friday – 45 km)

We arrive in Thorn via Heel and Wessem. Thorn is called “the white town” and you will immediately realise why. This town from the year 922 AD has an exceptional reason to be white….. We now cycle further through Belgium to Maaseik. This town is famous for the painters Hubert and Jan van Eyck. On the market square we see typical renaissance houses  with their impressive facades. For he/she who dares, the opportunity to try a Belgian “pint” on this beautiful square.

Via the Driebeukenbos and Stokkum, we arrive back at the river Maas. A little further along the Juliana canal, the Elodie is waiting for you in front of the Born lock. We pass through the lock with its fall of more than 11 metres and follow our way by ship to Maastricht.

 

Maastricht (Saturday)

We take our time over the most southerly city in our country. Here on the banks of the river Maas lies an extraordinarily beautiful and above all enjoyable town. In this town you find the treasure house of the St. Servaas Church, the Bonnefanten museum for art and antiquity, and the Kazematten, a system of underground fortress works from the 18th century. In addition to these places of interest, it is also worthwhile visiting the marl caves, or just to thoroughly enjoy yourself on the Vrijthof. You will not get bored very quickly! In the evening you can choose a restaurant to you liking out of the many good restaurant you can find in Maastricht.

 

Maastricht  (Sunday)

We take leave of you after breakfast.
