Sail and Bike the Wadden Sea

Still 20 places available
Would you like to go on vacation in your own country? Get a breath of fresh air with a nice group and enjoy the Dutch sun? Then join us on a Bike and Sail week on the Wadden Sea! Young and old, everyone is welcome to join this trip.
Why this vacation?
Sailing on the mudflats
Bike and Sail is completely dedicated to the Wadden Sea. During our sailing trips on the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site we really encounter everything; beautiful nature reserves, seals on the sandbank between Ameland and Terschelling and every evening a breathtaking sunset. Of course, a visit to the Wadden Islands is also on the program! After arrival in the harbor it is time for drinks on deck and then we can go out walking or by bike to explore the island. If you prefer to take it a little easier, just stay on board to relax. Don’t have any sailing experience? No problem, because the skipper and his mate will be happy to teach you the ropes!
During this sailing week you will stay in style on an authentic sailing ship in a real cabin. Each ship has a heated dayroom below deck, a kitchen and mostly two and four person cabins with their own sink. In addition, there are always several showers and toilets on board.
