They have their very own flair, their own character, the East Frisian Islands in the North Sea. All are shaped by the vastness of the sea, the waves and beaches, and yet Borkum, Norderney and Langeoog form worlds of their own. A high-seas climate awaits you on Borkum, for example, Norderney is sophisticated, and Langeoog is almost completely car-free. The coast of East Frisia, on the other hand, has charms: the old chieftain's seat of Aurich or the picturesque fishing village of Greetsiel. Rough is the charm of the north, rough and hearty.

Overview of your benefits
  • Good value for money
  • Tour incl. hotels and luggage transport
  • Extensive route booklet & GPS data
  • Top brand rental bikes bookable
  • Over 30 years of experience
Nordsee Strand auf Langeoog

Welcome to Emden. In the late afternoon we meet for an information talk and to hand out the bikes (if booked). Emden's harbour, the Kunsthalle and the Otto Huus then invite you to visit.

Overnight place: Emden

For two hours your way leads across the sea before you reach Borkum, the largest East Frisian island. Once a refuge for pirates, later shaped by whaling, travelers are now conquering the island. Explore the landscapes of Borkum on the 130 km long network of cycle paths. Or maybe you prefer a day of swimming on the 26-kilometre-long sandy beach before returning to Emden?

Overnight place: Overnight stay in Emden like the day before

You cycle to the romantic fishing village of Greetsiel, the largest shrimp boat port in the WeserEms-Region. Take a short break before the journey continues north past the Leybucht, where you may be lucky enough to spot seals.

Overnight place: North or surrounding areas

Otto von Bismarck and Heinrich Heine waren guest on Norderney; Today, the oldest seaside resort on the East Frisian Islands welcomes you for a bike ride past the lighthouse in the center of the island, mills and tidal creeks. Again, a beach walk would be a delightful alternative. Norderney's sandy beach is 14 kilometers long.

Overnight place: Overnight stay like the day before in the north or surrounding area

Chiefs' castles and East Friesland's most beautiful moated castle in Dornum line your route today before you cross over to Langeoog to stay two nights on the car-free island.

Overnight place: Langeoog Island

Traffic jams, exhaust fumes, honking - none of that exists on the car-free island of Langeoog, formerly the home of singer Lale Andersen (Lili Marleen). Instead, sand dunes more than 20 meters high, fresh sea air and ... of course plenty of opportunity for cycling, sunbathing and walking on the beach.

Overnight place: Overnight stay like the day before on the island of Langeoog

The ferry takes you back to the mainland. From Bensersiel you cycle to Aurich, the old capital of East Friesland. Next follow the meanders of the Ems-Jade Channel. Your journey will take you to Emden with almost no cars.

After breakfast individual return journey or start of your extension.

everything great!

We felt very comfortable on the tour - everything worked out great... the map material could be slightly improved.
- Long, Peter


Drive by numbers

GPS data should also be available for the tours, since driving by numbers (junctions) is sometimes complicated if plants cover the numbers, etc.

Totally satisfied!

Thanks to the tour operator's introduction, everything went well with the "island hoppers". The "driving by the numbers" could have been explained in a bit more detail, but by the second day we got the hang of it and found it very useful. Great trip to get an impression of Ostfriesland. When is the catalog for 2024 coming out ;-)
