Along the way you will visit historical cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Gouda, uncover many culturally historic attractions and, more importantly, be able to immerse yourself in the very fabric of this fascinating and very Dutch part of Holland.

Also, if you are an art aficionado, you will revel in the opportunity to explore Leiden, Haarlem and Delft where painters such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Vermeer lived and worked.

But far from just being about big cities and Dutch history, this tour is also about the picturesque villages and beautiful scenery of central and South Holland. One thing is certain: by the end of the tour you will not only come away with a new-found appreciation for bike and barge cruising, but everything Dutch.

With a maximum capacity of just 20 passengers, the ship MS Jelmar offers guests an intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Allow yourself to be pampered with great service and delicious meals on your home away from home for the week.

A bonus during this tour is the fact that the MS Jelmar docks in and around the city centre of the various cities and villages visited at the end of each day’s cycling, giving you the opportunity to visit and explore at your leisure at night.

MS Jelmar

The Jelmar is a small, cozy and comfortable passenger barge for 20-22 persons, which was renovated in 2007. The 10 cabins (approx. 8.2 m2) feature two single beds (80 x 200 cm), a small wardrobe, shelves above and storage space under the beds, a small bathroom with washbasin, shower and toilet and small windows with screens that can be opened. In two of the cabins a folding bed for children up to age 12 (weighing no more than 40 kg) is available upon request.

The salon, nostalgically furnished, with bar and Wi-Fi (mobile internet; additional info on board) is your restaurant and living room. On nice evenings or while cruising you can enjoy the scenery on the sundeck.
