Rad und Schiff Tourenkarte der Leafde fan Fryslan

Embarkation at 14:00 (on 04.05/16 at :) at the beautiful city center and train station of the historic port town of Enkhuizen. After everyone has checked in, the captain gives an introduction to your sailing hotel and the tour guides give an overview of the week ahead. After all the necessary safety instructions have been given, the ship sets off for your first destination of the week, Medemblik. After dinner, your tour guides will guide you through this historic town, which is known for its sailing culture.

Overnight place: Enkhuizen

In the morning, after a thorough bike fitting, you can set off on your first bike tour. We will ride in two groups, with one guide riding a longer route while the other group chooses a shorter route. The highlight of both routes is the picturesque village of Twisk, a former peat mining town that never experienced great poverty and is still in its original historical state.

Overnight place: Texel

The island of Texel is a dream destination for cyclists with its varied landscape, picturesque villages and special cycle paths. Your guide will take you on a tour of the island. The program also includes a visit to the seal sanctuary “Ecomare”. The foundation's main task is to rescue and heal birds and seals, but also to inform visitors about the area and the wildlife.

Overnight place: Texel

Today the sails are set. The captain and the sailor will introduce you to the art of sailing as the impressive ship sails to the next island, Terschelling. You will cross the Wadden Sea with its many sandbanks, where you may see seals. During the sailing trip today, a rich lunch will be served instead of dinner. If the weather permits, you will dine on deck. The exact route and duration of the trip depend on the tidal current and the wind. You will arrive on Terschelling in the afternoon. The pretty villages on the narrow and approximately 30 km long island have retained much of their old charm... Today no dinner will be served on board. This gives you the opportunity to explore the harbor of the beautiful island with its many nice restaurants and pubs.

Overnight place: Terschelling Island

Yesterday you mainly sailed, today it's time to get back on your bike. Terschelling has a lot to offer: nature and culture, 70 km of cycle paths and four beautiful villages. West-Terschelling is the largest town on the island with numerous shops and pubs. The island's landmark can be seen from afar: the 400-year-old Brandaris lighthouse. The De Boschplaat nature reserve is also worth seeing, characterized by moors, salt marshes, beaches and dunes. With a bit of luck you will see lots of ducks, black-winged stilts and large colonies of spoonbills and great black-backed gulls. In the late afternoon the ship sets off again and sails to Harlingen, the most important port on the Frisian mainland.

Overnight place: Harlingen

The cycling tour starts after breakfast in Harlingen. Via Franeker, where a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Planetarium by Eise Eisinga is on the agenda, the tour continues through the wonderful, expansive Friesland landscape dotted with small villages to Makkum on the eastern shore of the IJsselmeer. If you want to take the long cycling tour, you will also come to Bolsward, one of the Frisian eleven towns.

Overnight place: Makkum

From Makkum, the cycle continues to Stavoren. The short route leads through the old trading town of Hindeloopen. Hindeloopen painting is world famous. The first Frisian ice skating museum is also located here. The long route leads along several lakes in the Frisian Lake District and reveals a completely different landscape. From Stavoren, the ship sets course for Enkhuizen at the end of the day.

Overnight place: Enkhuizen

LEAFDE FAN FRYSLAN

The impressive four-masted schooner Leafde fan Fryslân made her maiden voyage in 2018. The interior of the recently restyled ship can be described as modern-traditional. On the lower deck there are 12 well-equipped twin cabins, 1 smaller twin cabin and 1 junior suite with two separate beds and 2 single cabins. In two twin cabins a third bed (bunk bed) can be added, making the ship perfect for a family. On the upper deck there are 4 magnificent suites with a hotel-style bed, a double glass sliding door and a small private balcony. The restaurant serves delicious meals and the bar is well-stocked, making the saloon the ideal place to relax after a day on the bike. And if you haven't burned enough calories yet, you are welcome to roll up your sleeves up on deck and help the crew with the sailing.
