Bruges a Amsterdã

Bélgica, Holanda Passeio de Bicicleta e Barco

Passeio de bicicleta e barco pela mais clássica rota da Europa: Bélgica e Holanda

O passeio de bicicleta e barco que começa em Bruges e termina em Amsterdã é íntimo, inspirador e empolgante. Talvez a relativa anonimidade da Bélgica seja o que a manteve tão íntima e nostálgica. O lema aqui é “sentir o passado sob os seus pés”. Os canais e ruas de paralelepípedo da cidade viram muitos marinheiros comerciantes desde o século 9, quando essa capital flamenga foi fundada em uma enseada do Mar do Norte. Ela cresceu e se tornou um rico centro de comércio com Antuérpia e Inglaterra, porém, perdeu muito de seu poder de comércio em 1490 quando o Rio Reie assoreou. A cidade mantém uma atmosfera viva e revigoradora que faz lembrar uma das obras de arte de Jan van Eyck do século 15. As influências de outros artistas flamengos também ainda transpiram na arquitetura renascentista do norte e também, nas catedrais dos séculos 13 e 15. A grande Praça do Mercado, no centro, está repleta de cafés aconchegantes ao ar livre que rodeiam o Belfort. Esta torre do campanário tem uma altura de 272 pés e tem um carrilhão de 47 sinos. Subir os 366 degraus da torre oferece uma vista recompensadora! Daqui, você pedalará sobre os córregos e calmas estradas rurais através da tranquila paisagem flamenga até chegar em Ghent. As arestas medievais de tijolo vermelho da cidade são arquitetonicamente extraordinárias, e a Igreja de São Bavo abriga um peça de arte de valor inestimável dos irmãos Van Eyck, O Retábulo de Ghent: A adoração da Ovelha Mística (1432). Daqui, você pedalará de volta para Holanda para as vilas pitorescas de Goes na parte central de Zeeland, e para a cidade costeira de Willemstad. Amsterdã será o destino final do passeio, e também é impressionante. Com mais de 6800 edifícios históricos e conjunto sem fim de canais e pontes, Amsterdã é verdadeiramente uma visão a ser vista (juntamente com o famoso Nightwatch de Rembrandt que está em exposição no museu Rijksmuseum).

Você verá os diferentes itinerários depois do detalhado itinerário dia-a-dia descrito abaixo para o Elodie. Se você não vir o seu barco listado abaixo, nós protamente podemos lhe enviar o seu itinerário específico. 

 Todas as distâncias são aproximadas. O itinerário acima está sujeito a alterações devido a mudanças nas condições de vento e clima, e a circunstâncias imprevistas que tenham relação com os requisitos de atracagem.

DIA 1: Bruges 

Bem vindo à capital do Flandres Oeste (West Flanders). Depois de se acomodar na sua cabine, você conhecerá seu guia, a tripulação e os outro colegas de passeio. Seguindo as instruções, você fará um passeio atpe Damme (8 km) para se acostumar com sua bicicleta. Depois do jantar você terá a noite para explorar a cidade.

 DIA 2: Bruges – Ghent, 33 mi. (52 km)

 Pela manhã você deixará a cidade indo na direção leste para Ghent, seguindo principalmente o canal entre as duas cidades. Este um passeio de bicicleta adorável, calmo e com um bocado de variedades. A sua chegada em Ghent será no comecinho da tarde, oferecendo oportunidade para visitar o centro com sua arquitetura de eras passadas e agradável atmosfera. A cidade de Ghent se orgulha de sua rica história e comemora seu passado, mas não ficou preso nele. Esta é uma cidade adorável com suas numerosas praças  e aconchegantes bairros do começo do século 20 ( que hoje em dia abriga estudantes), e animadas pequenas praças.

 DIA 3: Ghent – Middelburg, 26 ou 46 mi. ( 41 ou 73 km)

 Hoje, deixamos a Bélgica para trás e entramos na Holanda via a ciclovia nacional que vai através do leste de Flandres até Breskens. De Vlaanderen na Bélgica para Vlaanderen na Holanda. Inicialmente, você começa com um passeio de 2,5 horas de Ghentto Sas van Gent na fronteira da Bélgica com a Holanda. Depois de um passeio de bicicleta agradável, você cruzará o Westerschelde de balsa. A mundança de cultura ficará claramente notável quando você entra mais a dentro do interior da Holanda na província de Zeeland. Passaremos a noite em Middleburg.

 DIA 4: Middelburg – Zieriksee, 20 ou 32 mi. (32 ou 52 km)

 A rota passa através do interior de Zeeland, depois de algumas vilas, estradas curvadas, remenicências de riachos, chegamos na área do Delta de 4 grandes rios. Antigamente, havia uma conexão com o mar via inumeros braços de rios. Depois da enchente de 1953, os trabalhos no Delta foram feitos onde represas foram construídas e fecharam a maioria das entradas da maré.A província de Zeeland é, praticamente, toda abaixo do nível do mar. Antes do Projeto Delta, a chance de enchente era uma em cada 80 anos. O Projeto Delta, particularmente a barreira contra tempestades, reduziu a chance em 1 em cada 4.000 anos. É altamente recomendada uma visita a ao interior e exterior da barreira contra tempestades, a qual poderá ser feita no itinerário de amanhã. Você se encontrará cercado por concreto que é para durar 200 anos, por uma enorme porta de ferro de 5 metros, com ondas quebrando em baixo. Isto é algo que não deve ser perdido!

 DIA 5: Zieriksee – Willemstad - Dordrecht, 36 ou 24 mi. (58 ou 38 km)

 De Zieriksee, o passeio ciclístico leva até  Willemstad pela ecluda de Volkerak, também para do plano para protejer a Holanda do avanço do mar. Willestad ganhou seu nome em homenagem ao rei holandês. Historicamente, esta cidade fortificada, que tem centenas de anos, teve um papel importante no sistema de defesa militar da Holanda. Passaremos a noite em Willemstad.

 DIA 6 : Dordrecht – Vianen, 30 mi. (47 km)

A primeira parte do passeio é passada a bordo enquanto navegamos para Dordrecht, onde faremos um tour pela cidade e então, prosseguiremos para Kinderdijk, uma da mais famosas atrações na Holanda. Kinderdijk, localizada a 15 milhas a leste de Rotterdam, é um Patrimônio da Humanidade pela UNESCO e hostenta 19 moínhos perfeitamente preservados. Os moínhos foram erguidos em 1600 para drenar os polders de Alblasserwaard, que sofreram enchentes desde o século 13. Em uma das enchentes, a Enchente Santa Elisabelte de 1421, é tanto a razão do nome Kinderdijk e como é associada ao conto de fadas, “O Gato e o Berço”: depois da tempestade, um berço de madeira foi visto no dique, os habitantes locais encontraram um bebê dentro do berço – por isso o nome Kindedijk, que significa em holandês “dique das crianças”. Ao longo do rio Lek, você continuará sua jornada com uma parada em Schoonhoven, a “A cidade Prateada”.  Pernoite em Vianen.

DIA 7: Vianen – Amsterdã, 27 mi. ( 43 km)

Enquanto você seu cruzeiro durante o café da manhã, você passará pelas dramáticas comportas no Canal Amsterdã- Rhine. Desembarque em Breukelen, a charmosa cidade que emprestou seu nome para Brooklyn, o conhecido distrito de Nova Iorque. A última tirada leva você ao longo de sinuosas hidrovias e através de menores e maiores vilas. A diversidade do cenário é bastante pitoresca. No rio Vecht, numerosas casas de campo do século 17 da classe média alta daquela época podem se vistas. Elegantes mirantes ou “casas de chá” marca as esquinas de espaçosos jardins à beira do rio. Quase sem notar você entra em Amsterdã, seguindo o Rio Amstel. A vasta rede de ciclovias garante uma volta relativamente fácil para a cidade, mostrando alguns dos extraordinários locais no centro. Então chega a hora de dizer adeus a sua bicicleta. Nesta noite, o  jantar é por sua conta, o que permite que você tenha tempo o suficiente para explorar  a cidade.

 DAY 8: Amsterdã

Comentário do cliente

  • Maria P. 1 week ago

    It was a wonderful way to see the country. Wonderful fellow travelers and the crew couldn't gave been more accommodating . So much fun!

  • Eldon W. 3 weeks ago

    LIa is the best guide we've ever worked with - well informed, good managing people, qualified in every way; and went well beyond what she had to do in her position. All the riding - even in the rain and varied road surfaces - was extremely pleasant.

    Because Lia is an exceptional guide; on this trip one guide for up to 30 cyclists worked well. In most cases, however, I think having only one guide for this large a group - especially a group with many novice riders - is bad practice. Also, a water bottle cage and a cyclometer on the bike would have been nice.

    Boat: Magnifique

    • Jehiel 3 weeks ago

      Hello Eldon,
      We are glad that you had a great time and think highly of Lia! We do agree that a second guide, especially for larger groups would be preferable, however, because of the nature of the tour and the fact that many people do opt for the self-guided option, having two guide for all tours isn't always possible.

      Water bottles can be easily stowed in your handle bar bag or panniers. Cyclometers aren't provided on this tour but you are always welcome to bring your own.

      Thanks again for your feedback!

    Everything was A-1. I was totally surprised when our tour guide Tom managed to reunite me with my lost "zebra" luggage on a cobblestone street corner 4 days into the trip! Thanks, Tom!

  • Barbara Kallay 2 months ago

    My husband and I had a great bike trip. Riding through the Belgium/Netherlands was delightful. The staff made the trip most memorable- Jacob (bike guide), Els (boat captain), Thomas (cook).

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • S. Lior 2 months ago

    The most memorable part of my trip were the small towns and villages that we visited. These are places where tourists rarely venture. The people are friendly and open for conversations; willing to share their lives and experiences with us. And curious to know about us as well. I have so many wonderful memories.

    Having the map to tryi to not get lost was so much fun. Thank you to all the staff for making the bike barge a great activity vacation.

    Boat: Magnifique II

  • A & M Decourcy 2 months ago

    Great trip BUT.. We decided to cycle with 6 others because we are experienced riders. We were counting on the signage being much more complete and easier to follow. At times, there was no indication of where to go. Our path just ended! Also, the bigger group, of about 18, had some inexperienced riders and we felt that riding in this large a group could be dangerous...which proved to be the case.
    In one case, a previous rider had taken the liberty to use a marker to write our path number on a sign. Thanks to him/her we were able to continue on without taking out the GPS. Had this been done on several other signs, we would not have had to find our way ...using GPS..on many occasions. There were also 4 other Europeans, who cycled as a group, who experienced the same sense of frustration as us.
    We will forward a photo to the Tripsite website. Thanks for providing a most enjoyable and memorable trip.

  • D. Pincar 2 months ago

    I would recommend it, but with reservations. I think there should have been two guides, one to take a faster group and one for a beginner group. A few people on the trip should not have been. They were not comfortable on their bikes, and were a daily danger to whomever they were near. Something should have been done about it.
    I also would have liked to ride faster, and spend more free time in the little towns.

    Boat: Magnifique II

  • E. Hull-parsons 3 months ago

    I have planned to contact you with feedback, but haven't. The staff was great except the guide. He was not friendly or helpful. We were all disappointed in his lack of leadership and "guiding". Of the three trips we have taken, this was the least appealing. The route was not attractive, and mostly industrial, urban or rural. We were near places we know were charming and interesting, but did not visit them. I'm left wondering if it is that tour company. For 35 people biking there really should have been more staff on the road with us. Still love you!

    Boat: Fluvius

  • R. Oliver 3 months ago

    We sailed on the Magnifique II from Bruges to Amsterdam, 25 June to 1 July, under the able command of skipper Paul, and ride leader Tom Tiedom. It was a magnificent experience in every way, even though we had a few odd showers to contend with. This is virtually a brand new barge with upscale accommodations and amenities. We had one of the four top-side suites, which are indeed larger, and with view windows that open as opposed to port holes. Tom, the ride leader and guide, was an extremely charming, knowledgeable and humorous fellow. He provided daily briefings on the next day's ride, all of which included ample coffee and food stops, as well as providing historic info. Indeed, the entire crew were extremely courteous and helpful in every respect, and the food delicious.

    When I first heard of a bike & barge trip, I thought I would be sleeping on a cot under the stars! After obtaining more info, I realized we would have a comfortable room but I was very impressed with our accommodations. It was like being on a mini cruise. Food was great, tour guide was personable and entertaining, friendly staff went out of their way to make this trip extra special. We had an arranged canal boat tour complete with champagne after arriving in Amsterdam! I would highly recommend the Magnifique and this crew, for an awesome way to experience Belgium and The Netherlands.

  • L. Messing 3 months ago

    Our guide Felix, was fun, knowledgeable and intuitive. His attitude and ease of being with people made even a horrible weather day endurable. The BIGGEST bonus was having Astrid along as a trainee. She added so much to every aspect of our journey and was a treasure trove of regional information.

  • J. Backes 3 months ago

    Exceptional staff, welcoming, friendly, informative, knowledgable. Perhaps on the rides having a buddy system so the guide doesn't need to count all the people to make sure everyone is present would be my only suggestion. I sometimes got the sense that people wanted to stop more often to take pictures and no one told them not to but then it can take time away from getting to visit town at the end of the day. Perhaps that needs to be discussed in more depth. Sometimes some of the breaks were longer than necessary. Again they were fine but took time from visiting a town at the end of the trip.

    Boat: Magnifique II

  • R. Wood 4 months ago

    The Merlijn is a very special barge full of character and charm, beautifully appointed and owned and operated by the delightful Jantine and Henk. They along with their crew spoiled us rotten with great food and hospitality. Our bike ride was thru beautiful countryside and expertly guided and interpreted by a delightful Dutch couple, Jack and Marianne. They gave us great local insight. We thoroughly recommend the Merlijn and can't wait to return.

  • W. Staab 4 months ago

    Great bike leader. Have name tags for participants or for bikes to help us w names. Would like to have been brave enough to ride on my own! Some participants were not really regular cyclists. Would have been good to have a briefing re group bike rules, including spacing, passing, signaling, warnings, etc.

    Boat: Magnifique II

  • R. Ross 4 months ago

    Loved it! The crew was great, the boat was marvelously beautiful, the food was very good, and the overall atmosphere was perfectly casual and elegant at the same time. But: They should NOT charge for coffee/tea after 4pm. If the Bar Tab could be handled at the end of the trip by credit card it would be a bit more sophisticated, but not a deal breaker.

    Boat: Magnifique II

  • C. Powell 4 months ago

    This is one of the best trips I have ever been on. The boat was very clean, comfortable and new. The steps to the lower level kind of steep but very manageable. The staff was wonderful, especially the chef! and the bike guide! I liked the stops.The bikes were very enjoyable. I think the coffee could have been free all day instead of being charged for it after 4pm. I would love to do another trip!

    Boat: Magnifique

  • D. Yeabsley 4 months ago

    I would have liked for the table assignments to have been mixed up a little bit so we could get to know more people. I also think the sweep should have a walkie talkie so he can let the guide know when he has missed a turn. This was a fabulous trip! The guide, staff, food, tour and accommodations were perfect!

    Boat: Fluvius

  • K. Hadley 4 months ago

    Some wait staff could have been more accommodating. We seemed burdensome at times. Running out of food & then having to wait for more or not refilled at all was an annoyance.

      Hello K. Hadley,
      We are very sorry to hear this. We have since spoken with our partners on the Fluvius and they have taken steps with their staff to correct this problem. We work very hard with our local partners to provide the best experience for our guests. We hope to help you plan your next trip!

  • T. Rosencrantz 4 months ago

    The Bruges to Amsterdam Bike Barge trip starting May 7, 2016 on the Fluvius was fantastic from the minute we step on the barge in Bruges until the day it was over and departed the barge to take the foot ferry to Central Station in Amsterdam. Our guide Guus and the boat's crew were friendly and helpful 24/7. Loved all our fellow travelers too. The bike trips each day were through beautiful countryside and centuries old cities. The food on the boat was great. The bunks were comfy and the showers always had plenty of hot water. The bikes worked well. Our guide and our maps got us where we needed to go everyday. Even the weather was perfect! Can't wait to do another trip like this!

    Great trip. The owners of the Merlijn were =Spectacular! We hope to find a time to travel with them again. The Barge was amazing for such a compact vessel. The rooms were surprisingly large as was the bathroom. The Barge was immaculate at all times. What a fun trip!!

  • Dean Pond 10 months ago

    The above pretty well describes our satisfaction with our trip and we recommended our friends travel through your company which they did. We intend to take another barge/bicycle soon.

  • Philippe Tison 10 months ago

    I think the staff at Tripsite/Dutch Bike Tours should be obliged to do their bike routes once a year to pick up difficult signage. A ferry crossing as part of our schedule was not available on the day of the week we arrived and we had to do a long detour. The ferry never travels on that day at that time of the year and when I phoned the Dutch Tours hotline they didn't even know that. We were not impressed. Also, despite its 'star rating' the Velotel in Brugge is a very poor standard compared to the other hotels we stayed at. Terrible rooms and an awful location for seeing Brugge (but good for getting on the trail).

  • Robin Bagby 10 months ago

    Barge had bugs in drains. Lots in room every night. Aldo specifically booked comfort class boat for the AC. They turned it off before 9pm every night.

    This was my second trip on the Merlijn. Brought a group with me both times. Everything was fabulous. Jentien did an excellent job as chef and Henk, as the captain, was great. Our guides were excellent and most capable in emergencies. The towns we visited we interesting and our guides were able to fill us in on the history of the area. The bikes were in excellent shape. No flats! Will definitely travel with them again.

    My experience for our group with Tripsite was also the best. Have told many about your wonderful service. Thank you!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Bruges to Amsterdam bike/barge trip last spring. From the easy, scenic rides, to the informative, knowledgeable guide to the excellent private accommodations on board the barge, I'm already looking at booking another bike/barge trip with Tripsite!

    We were plagued by hot weather in early June. It was pleasant before and after our trip. Not your fault. The rest was great.

  • Allison Cook 10 months ago

    The bikes were a little beat up, but we enjoyed every aspect of the trip. My one complaint about the boat was that they shut off the AC at night and we couldn't open the portholes, so sleeping was not ideal. This year we are heading to Italy with 20 of our closest friends for the Venice to Mantova tour on the Ave Maria!

    Cabins were nicer than I expected. We stayed with the guide as found the routes hard to navigate and the guide knew all the great stops. Dinners were good, breakfast and lunches needed more variety by the end of the week. We had fabulous weather and loved the route. Lots to see.

  • Lynn McCormack 11 months ago

    We really enjoyed our trip, our guide Thomas was excellent. As always with group travel, the mix was interesting and generally older than us and less fit. We have travelled with a group before but usually we are the oldest so this was different dynamics and did set the tone somewhat. Would look at a trip again when we are older or with our own group to fill the barge.
    Thanks,
    Lynn

    1) In the boat is possible to rent helmet for EU$ 5/week. This renting is good for travelers that spend more time in Europe. I'm not sure if this information is available in the Tripsite's site.

    2) I ordered a E-bike for my wife. In the boat I saw that 2 kinds of E-bike are offered to the customers. My wife would love bike in a more comfortable E-bike.

    3) According to the staff of the boat, I should speak German. I don't know the source of this information. This information is used to organize the passengers in the restaurant.

  • Karen Thomas 11 months ago

    We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already planning another bike and barge trip. It would have been nice if there were a better split in English speaking guests as most of the guests spoke German and we didn't get a chance to mingle much. Tripsite was very good to work with and we would use this company again. "

    My husband and I(in our 60"s) were on the Sailing Home a month ago with 6 friends from Bruges to Amsterdam. We had the most wonderful time. Everything about this trip exceeded my expectations. The boat, our accommodations, the food, the crew were all excellent and I can't say enough about our guide Hugo. He was amazing and really made our trip memorable. He was funny and very knowledgeable about everything we saw so we got info about the countries and the politics. I highly recommended this fun trip for all ages and biking abilities.

  • Daniel Edwards 2 years ago

    we just returned from our trip. Brugges to Amsterdam. It was AWESOME. We had such a great time on the Gandalf with Hans. Els was our biking guide. She was terrific. It was fabulous and a great way to spend my 50th birthday!

    Thank you for everything you did to arrange this trip for us. We will be back on some other trip in the future.

    Not too sure what I can say that the above feedback haven't already said. We travelled as a group of 6 on the Magnifique from Brugge to Amsterdam May 31st to June 7th, 2014. Everything and everyone was top notch. We started out with Carl as our Captain but due to holidays the barges owner, Walter, took over. Not only can he handle the barge but he does a mean BBQ. Our guide Tom was perfect. With a great sense of humour and and sweet personality. There was not one person who did not get along with him. Meeka, bar tender, server, cleaner, and Peter the amazing cook finished off the crew. The barge itself was fantastic. No complaints there. The beds are extremely comfortable.

    Unfortunately one of our group was not able to complete the trip but we did meet a great group of people from all over the world.

    I am not the greatest biker but thoroughly enjoyed the whole journey and would do it again.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Sept trip from Bruges to Amsterdam on The MS Magnifique, booked through Tripsite.com. Comfortable cabin, great food, hot tub wonderful after long days of biking! Crew easy going but always helpful and attentive. Multi national fellow passengers all good company. Definitely encourage bringing your own gel seat cover! I had an electric assist bike which I'd highly recommend if in any doubt about managing the occasionally challenging distances. Already thinking of booking another similar trip next year.

    My husband and I did the bike and barge tour from Bruges to Amsterdam Jun 29/2013 - and had the most amazing time!! Right from my first contact with the folks at Tripsite to the end of our tour - everything was perfect. Carl the Captain, Tom the guide and all the rest of the hardworking fun loving crew were amazing. We cycled some of the most beautiful countryside, Tom was very funny and looked after everyone - the ages on our tour were 16 to 77 - and we all felt comfortable. You can go at your own speed or go strictly with the group. The Magnifique was a beautiful and very comfortable boat - I loved it and I would be very hard pressed not to choose her again for our next trip - we are hoping to do a trip during the tulip season and maybe one in the early fall:) I actually wanted to book the return trip when we cycled into Amsterdam - but we were going to a friends wedding in Italy so had to continue on:) I really can not say enough good things about Tripsite on the organization side (friendly, knowledgeable and efficient; and the the crew of the Magnifique - they were all Magnifique!!!! Can't wait to go again.

    Just got back from this tour yesterday and wish that I could do it all again tomorrow! Went from Brugge to Amsterdam on the Manifique. Outstanding crew with Carl as the Captain and Tom as the guide. Tom has a great sense of humor and related to everyone on the tour, with an awesome biking experience and even walking tours in the town most evenings. The folks at Tripsite was great - with lots of communication. I felt very prepared prior to leaving. I enjoyed working with Tripsite and greatly enjoyed the entire experience. Highly recommended.

    Travel quite different from the usual, fantastic landscapes. Traveled on the MS Magnifique, excellent service and facilities. The group guide (Tom) is attentive and competent. So you can be conducting another tour. Congratulations.               Ruyter Aquino.

  • Sailing on the Iris from Bruge to Amsterdam 4 years ago

    We booked our bike and barge trip with Pack and Pedal. We wanted a comfort plus barge and the Iris was recommended. The entire experience on the Iris was excellent. The staff were very competent and friendly, food was excellent, the guide was a great bike leader and was very knowlegable about the history and architecture of the areas we visited. I would highly recommend the Iris and Pack and Pedal. Carla at Pack and Pedal was very courteous and efficient. Booking the trip and making the trip was a top notch experience for us. We will use them again.

  • Cheri Emahiser 4 years ago

    Our bike/barge tour to Bruge and Amsterdam in May was fantastic! Our tour leader, Tom, the boat captain, crew and accommodations aboard the Magnifique were terrific. We had a wonderful time with our fellow passengers from Norway, New Zealand, Germany, the East Coast and Switzerland. They were all such fun!

    We've traveled extensively and this trip turned out to be one of the best ever. The weather was wonderful and warm, which made for excellent bike riding and cruising on the boat in the evening. Going from Bruge to Amsterdam requires more cruising and less bike riding, we were told, but we loved every minute of our evenings on the top deck sailing through the locks.

    I hope we can book another trip with your company in the future; though this trip was so perfect, I worry that the next one wouldn't meet our expectations.
