Cycling & Boat North Holland, MS Serena

Ijsselmeer & North Sea Beaches

Your cycle tour through the land of windmills, sand dunes and tulip fields starts with Eurobike. With the MS Serena you sail in North Holland between the North Sea, Wadden Sea and Ijsselmeer. Every time you land, you hop onto the saddle and discover the varied and fascinating landscapes and distinctive villages. You and your bike will be surrounded by fields, tranquillity and the gentle sounds of the sea. Already convinced? Then read more details now!

You spend seven nights on the MS Serena, which bypasses the bays of the stormy North Sea. The starting point is the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam. From there the ship will take you to Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Lemmer, up to the sunny island of Texel and back to the starting point in Amsterdam. You will be spoiled for choice for six days. You can hop onto the saddle and admire the landscape of Sint Marrtensvoltbrug and Alkmaar. Alternative: shorten the route with the MS Serena. It is up to you!

Itinerary

Boat ride: Amsterdam – Hoorn

Individual arrival to Amsterdam. Check-in on board in the afternoon. Maybe you will take some time for exploring the city of Amsterdam. At 5:30pm the MS SERENA will leave Amsterdam for the harbour town of Hoorn

Hoorn is an ancient city in which you can still find many buildings dating back to the 17th century (e.g. the Regentur of Westfriesland – today a museum, the town’s scales at the Rodesteen, the harbour tower as well as the storage houses at the old quai). Today you are cycling from Hoorn to Enkhuizen. Tip: you should visit the Zuiderzeemuseum.

approx. 20 to 25 km

Today you have a boat ride across the IJsselmeer to Lemmer. You are starting your round trip by bike: over the Oosterzee Buren to the Tjeukemeer, further to Munnekeburen, then around the Rottige Meente over Scherpenzel and Schoterzijl back to Lemmer with its historical old part of town and beautiful gable houses.

Tip: Optional visit to the largest still-functioning steam pumping station in the world, “Woudagemaal”.

approx. 30 to 45 km

You will cycle to Sondeler Leien Lake. From there you go through the Rijsterbos woods past the Mokkebank (a bird reserve) to the Roode Klif at Stavoren. From there you cruise to Oudeschild on Texel island. 

approx. 35 km

You are going on a round trip by bike on the biggest North Sea Island of the Netherlands – Texel. There are numerous routes you can choose between. Tip: We also recommend that you visit the beer brewery of Texel. At about 6 pm you take the boat back to Den Helder.

approx. 30 to 70 km

In the morning you cycle through the dunes to Alkmaar. It is possible for you to go on board the MS SERENA in St. Maartensvlotburg and cruise the rest of the way to Alkmaar. As an alternative, you can also start your bike tour in St. Maartensvlotburg.

approx. 25 to 55 km

abwechslungsreiche Rad-Schiffferien
Bei tollen Radlerwetter erkundeten wir täglich auf unserer selbstgewählten Tour die schönsten Gegenden. Der ortskundige, freundliche Reiseleiter gab uns am Vorabend Tipps wo was zu sehen ist und wo es Leckeres zu essen gibt. Die Vogelschutzgebiete, die Dünen, die Windmühlen, die Weite.......sind beeindruckend, auch die hübschen Städtchen wo wir nach der Tour flanieren konnten. Mit der aufmerksamen, freundlichen Mannschaft auf dem Schiff fühlten wir uns sofort sehr wohl und gut aufgehoben. Das Frühstück war sehr umfangreich und vielseitig, wir konnten unser Lunchpaket selber vom Buffet zubereiten, das Menue am Abend sehr abwechslungsreich und fein. Eine ganz tolle Woche!

Superbe semaine, il y a juste un MAIS
Accueil, repas, propreté, itinéraires, ambiance, personnel, tout était parfait. mais il y a un MAIS, les suisses de langue française aiment aussi ce genre de vacances MAIS il manquait le parler et les guides en français. Mais à part ce petit couac, il n'y avait rien à redire. MERCI à toutes et tous, tout personnel confondu

Günther Lämmerer answered:
Les documents pour cette voyage sont traduit, mais je peux entendre que c’est difficile voyager avec un groupe ou tout le monde parle une autre langue. Nous avons essayer garantir des guides francophone pour certaines dates, mais l’intérêt des clients Suisse Romands était trop faible.
