IJsselmeer

8 Days Easy-Moderate 192 Km

Cycling and sailing tour around the lake IJsselmeer
Take an exciting discovery tour on a stylish and beautifully appointed sailing ship. Your tour starts in Amsterdam and takes you along the IJsselmeer coast. In 1933, the 32 km long “Afsluitdijk” (Enclosure Dam) was constructed, a fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Project, damming off the Zuiderzee, formerly a salt water inlet of the North Sea, and turning it into the fresh water lake IJsselmeer.The province of Flevoland was reclaimed from the sea. The charming historic towns, the polders and the villages of the interior are connected by excellent cycle paths. In Monnickendam, Hoorn and Enkhuizen you’ll discover the old trading towns from the era of the Dutch East India Company. On the eastern shore of the IJsselmeer you can visit the provinces of Friesland and Flevoland with the former islands of Urk and Schokland. On the final day, wind and weather permitting, you set off under full sail again for Amsterdam. Here you have plenty of time to enjoy a last evening seeing the sights of the beautiful and exciting capital of the Netherlands.
