We are delighted to announce the launch of a new premium barge, the MAGNIFIQUE II.

The new vessel will be a sister ship of the MAGNIFIQUE and will be launched in the Spring of 2016 to accommodate bike and barge tour travelers sailing the waters of Holland and Belgium. The vessel is currently under construction in Koudum (province of Friesland) and will feature a classical style with a modern design and premium accommodations.

We are going to follow the builiding process from start to finish!

Here you can see a once former barge beginning a new life.

Picture above is the ship as it once was.

The Magnifique will accommodate 35 passengers in 18 cabins. Highlight of the new barge will be 4 upper deck suites with a small sitting area and large panoramic sliding doors. On lower deck the barge will feature 13 regular twin cabins and one single cabin. The nice salon will feature a restaurant area, bar and lounge area. Large doors will open to the partially roofed sundeck.

The pictures below are artist’s impressions of the new barge:

Looking forward to our 30th anniversary, I said to my wife, “Let’s take a trip and visit Poland.” Since she had been to my native Taiwan many times, I thought it only fitting to see the place where her ancestors came from—Poland.We wondered, how many countries could we cover on a week-long bike trip? The Moravia bike tour would take us from Poland through Czech Republic, Slovakia, and into Austria. Read More


My first experience on an electric bike

November 9, 2016 • 1 Comment

By: HennieThere is power in the battery! Are you like me and too stubborn (or proud) to resort to an electric bike? There is nothing wrong with trying to stay on a regular hybrid touring bike or road bike as long as you can and as long as you are having fun! But when it becomes just a bit too difficult, or you really want to experience the beauty of a tour that is rated beyond your ability, it is time to think about your options. Read More
