Attractions along the way include many charming villages, a visit to a real Dutch cheese farm, the 19 famous Dutch windmills in Kinderdijk and the world famous cities of Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges in the western Flanders region of Belgium. You will cycle through and discover the Dutch province of Zeeland, which is essentially one big river delta of the Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt Rivers famous for its fantastic beaches, water sport activities and Delta works and the Flanders region of Belgium famous for its medieval towns and a reputation for superb food and drink. As well as being able to discover many picturesque villages each day.

What to Expect

  • Total Length: 291 km
  • Total vertical up: 40 m
  • Terrain: 95% tarmac, 5% unpaved

This cycling tour is largely along the flats plains, and the daily stages vary from 15 to 59 km – mostly on tarmac cycle paths along rivers and canals, or quiet country roads. The boat is moored at night and typically sets sail after breakfast, meeting up with the bikes in the afternoon. Some parts of the itinerary are undertaken by boat, to allow easier access onto cycling paths or simply to enjoy the cruise.  

Easy cycling in mostly flat areas, with only few short climbs and descents. Little effort required, suitable for most people.

Day 1Embarkation: Amsterdam | Amsterdam – Vianen

Embarkation and check-in where the crew will welcome you on board is at 1 PM. At around 2 PM on one of the MS Magnifique’s will depart from Amsterdam for Vianen, a small fortified village on the Lek River. After the distribution of bicycles, you can enjoy a short first test bike ride through the surrounding area (approx. 5-15 km/3-9 mi.).

Day 2Vianen – Schoonhoven – Kinderdijk (Approx. 56 km/34 mi.) | Kinderdijk – Dordrecht

Today you will cycle along a beautiful route to Schoonhoven – nicknamed Zilverstad (“Silver City”) – a city renowned for its talented silver smiths since the 17th century. Later in the day as you cycle through the Alblasserwaard region you will reach Kinderdijk, a village famous for its impressive row of 19 large windmills……..

Day 3Dordrecht – Willemstad | Willemstad – Tholen (Approx. 43 km/26 mi.) | Tholen – Kreekrak lock – Antwerp

As you enjoy your breakfast at one of the MS Magnifique’s will sail to Willemstad where you will start your day’s cycling. Attractions today include the beautiful “Wouwse Plantage” forest, the fortress town of Bergen op Zoom and the impressive Kreekrak lock. In the afternoon you will once again board one of the MS Magnifique’s which will sail to the port city of Antwerp which is situated on the river Schelde……

Day 4Antwerp – Temse – St. Amands/Dendermonde (Approx. 47-59 km/28-35,5 mi.)

This morning you will cycle out of Antwerp along a picturesque section of the Schelde River to either St. Amands or Dendermonde – depending on the tides – your home for the night. There is only one way to describe the landscape around the Schelde and that is “magnificent”. It is without doubt one of the natural highlights of the tour.

Day 5St. Amands/Dendermonde – Ghent (Approx. 53-40 km/32-24 mi.)

Today you will continue to follow the river Schelde to Ghent where one of the MS Magnifique’s will moor for the night at a lock in the suburb of Merelbeke. Ghent is a lively university city that boasts a rich history. Since Roman times Ghent’s position at the junction of Leie and Schelde Rivers has ensured that it has been a successful trading port. In total the city features an Opera House, 18 museums, more than 100 churches and over 400 historical buildings.

Day 6Ghent – Bruges (Approx. 45 km/28 mi.)

Today you will cycle from Ghent through the beautiful Flemish countryside of western Flanders to Bruges, widely described as the ‘Venice of the North’ and arguably the most beautiful of all the Flemish cities. Bruges attracts more than two million visitors every year who come to see the picturesque medieval town center of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed historic city and a long list of historic attractions.

Day 7 Tour around Bruges to the North Sea (Approx. 50 km/30 mi.)
