General information and prices
Week ‘adults only’ sail & bike along the Ijsselmeer and Wadden Sea
with our sailing vessel from Sundayevening August 8th until Sunday August 15th.




7-day trip

Enjoy a wonderful week of sailing & cycling or walking with us on our sturdy ship, romantic and adventurous.

Experience the ultimate holiday feeling while watching the setting sun on a beautiful summer evening, or relaxing on our authentic comfortable ship, on deck or downstairs in the cosy lounge.

Sometimes sailing requires a lot of manoeuvres and sometimes it’s just smooth sailing.

Either way: when you have enjoyed a long day of sailing, it’s always nice to arrive in a harbour. After a hefty day of tacking, you can revel in your seaman’s sentiment and relax with a good book, talk over the days experiences with your travel companions or take a walk around to scout the port city or island.

You are most welcome on board on Sunday August 8th from 21:00 hours.

Our sailing area: The Dutch Waters: IJsselmeer, Wadden Sea or inland waterways

Let us guide you on our sturdy ship De Vriendschap and enjoy a wonderful time on board. Let the panoramas and the lakes silver glow enchant you, feel the wind in your hair and relax. Experience the vibe of our Dutch Wadden Sea with its unique islands and sandbanks and taste the salt on your skin. Along the way you will see many birds and seals and sometimes even porpoises.

Because we are dependant on wind and weather, we never know exactly where the journey will take us beforehand. Exciting, because there are numerous options!
We moor in a beautiful Dutch harbor town, or anchor overnight to let you enjoy the intense silence and darkness. We look forward to organizing a wonderful week for and with you.

Food & Drinks

Food & drinks

Being at sea the whole day gives you a strong appetite. Therefore the ships cook’s care is of great importance. Our kitchen crew will provide you with a good breakfast, lunch and diner every day. Additionally we will spoil you every once and again with tasty snacks. And a delicious appetizer in the afternoon.


Breakfast consists of a variety of breads with cold meats, cheese and sweet toppings, yoghurt, muesli, coffee, tea and milk.


For lunch we offer several dishes, like a filled soup with baguette and cheese, a delicious pasta salad, lots of green salads etcetera. Always served with milk and juice.


For dinner we always serve a warm meal with desert.



During meals and through the day coffee, tea and tapwater are available. You can buy other drinks, like wine, beer, mineral water and several soft drinks on board. At the end of the trip, your beverages’ bill will be settled with the skipper. It is not allowed to bring your own drinks.

Dietary needs

If you have any dietary needs, please note these with your reservations. We will try to tend to your wishes as well as possible. Are you vegan? We can offer vegetarian meals. Sadly it is not possible for us to serve vegan dishes on board.

Buy consciously

We purchase environmentally consciously for our catering packages, which is why we use products from the region and encourage our guests to do the same. The bread is bought from the local bakery, meat from the butcher and vegetables from the greengrocer or market, cheese from the cheese farmer. We try to avoid the large supermarkets.
All this in order to responsibly serve a good and tasty dish for you.
