From the 20th-century town of Lelystad on the new recalimed Flevopolder, you will take a trip back in time and discover the Dutch Golden Age, a period of economic and cultural wealth during the 17th century.

You will cycle through flat green polders, along old dikes, visiting idyllic towns such as Enkhuizen, Hoorn and Medemblik where you can still get a taste of the rich trading history of this region.

On the so-called 'New Land' of the Flevopolder you will cycle to the unique former Zuiderzee islands of Urk and Schokland - since 1995 a UNESCO World Heritage Site - where you will truly experience that you're cycling over what used to be the bottom of the sea!

You will sleep on the Soeverein, a 3-master built in the style of the 17th-century East Indiaman merchant ships.

From the big upper deck you have a magnificent view out over the water and the coastline. Below deck there are comfortable sleeping cabins, a professional kitchen and a large lounge to make your stay on board a pleasure. Gerard, Denise and their crew are our hosts during this week-long Zuiderzee Coast tour. Daily programmes are flexible allowing you to choose from among tours of different lengths for that particular day. Or you may choose to just relax and enjoy the day’s sail on board.
