10 cabins / 2 decks

Going "green" and traveling the seas remarkably come together on the eco-friendly passenger barge Gandalf. This smaller yet impressive barge is mostly powered by renewable energy from solar panels on board the roofs of the vessel. Therefore electrical systems are not relying on a generator full time thus providing a quieter ride and better experience for guests. Gandalf has been cruising in Holland and Belgium for many years. The ship has a salon/living room for common use and dining area that gives it an "at home" atmosphere. The two sun decks have seating and tables as well as bike storage. Come enjoy a trip on the sustainable ship whose experienced crew offer an exceptional vacation aboard.
