West Frisian Tidelands, Leafde Fan Fryslan

A sense of freedom.

Wind and salt on your skin and a feeling of liberty! Sailing trips are really something special. It’s a little bit like discovering the sea as a sailor… Whilst on a luxury sailing boat on IJsselmeer lake and mud flats, experience pure nature and the elements: the sea, wind and sun. 

The tideland stretches across the North Sea Coast, a landscape which is unique in the world. Sand and water are dominating alternately with the tides. As if they were perls lined up in a row, both small and large islands are protecting the shelf of the tideland. Look forward to a stiff breeze in the sails and a spectacular view of the sea, dunes and sand banks. What are you waiting for? Cast off!

Itinerary

Itinerary: Just the arrival and departure harbour Enkhuizen is certain - subject to changes! Here an example for the tour course:

Individual arrival to Enkhuizen, approx. 65 km (60 minutes by car) north-west of Amsterdam. Embarkation starts at 4 pm. In the evening aperitif and welcome briefing with the skipper. He will inform you about the journey, the boat and the security on board.

Today the ship sails from Enkhuizen to Den Oever with its fishing harbour. You can stay on board and sail over the IJsselmeer or you can grab a bike and start your first cycling tour along the IJsselmeer coast through the beautiful polder-landscape to Medemblik. After the bike tour the ship will sail further to Den Oever. Depending on the weather in the evening the ship will sail across the Wadden Sea to the Island of Texel.

Bike tour on Texel Island approx. 30-65 km

Explore Texel  island with its diversified landscape and picturesque villages. Circular bike tour on the biggest Dutch North Sea Island. Tip: do the well signposted Thijsse route or visit the seal rearing station 'EcoMare'.

Today you will be visiting Terschelling island, also known as “Amsterdam of the tidelands”. The beautiful villages still have a lot of their charm. 

Bike tour at Island Terschelling approx. 0-70 km

Terschelling offers a lot: nature and culture, 70 km bike paths and four beautiful villages. West-Terschelling is the biggest village of the island with numerous shops and pubs. You will recognise the emblem of the island already from afar, 400-year-old light house “Brandaris”. Well worth seeing is also moorland „De Boschplaat“. It appeals through mud, beaches and dunes. With a bit of luck you can see lots of ducks and birds.

Today the ship sails to Harlingen, the outstanding town of Friesland. Across Franeker with its popular planetarium from Eise Eisinga, you will cycle through the beautiful and roomy Frisian landscape with its tiny villages to Makkum. If you´re in to take the long trip, you can come to Bolsward, one of the eleven Frisian towns.

Today you take your bike and ride from Makkum to Stavoren. The route passes the old trading town Hindeloopen where the famous painting comes from. Also, there is the first Frisian ice-skate museum. The long tour crosses many Frisian lakes and shows a different scenery. In Stavoren, you take your ship and sail to Enkhuizen.

After breakfast disembarkation and individual trip home.

Tour character

The possible bike tours are dependant on which route the sailing boat goes. Due to the large number of cycle paths in Holland, it is a true paradise for cyclists there. The routes are flat and are therefore easy.
