Bike and Boat for families on the former Zuiderzee
Family Special: The IJssellake by Bike and Barge

Tour Description: Guided

This cycle and sail holiday in the Netherlands is especially developed for families with children ages 7-11. Both the cycling rides and the tour program have been adjusted to children, which includes some very interesting visits and activities.

Along the coastline of the IJssel Lake you'll sail to the beautiful historic port town of Hoorn. Before crossing this former inland sea 'Zuiderzee' to Urk in the province of Flevoland, you will visit the Zuiderzee open air museum, which visualizes life in the former fisherman's villages.

Sailing lakes, waterways and canals you arrive in the beautiful village of Blokzijl, located in the heart of National Park 'De Weerribben'. In this unique area of marshland, you will enjoy a very special canoe trip. 

You then cycle to Giethoorn, known as the Venice of the North. A round trip by 'punter'on the canals of this restored village is a must. Elburg, a well preserved fortified town, is worth wandering around its small streets.
