April 23, 2015

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:

Kevin and I had done a number of guided bike tours, and loved every one of them, but we yearned for the adventure of finding our own way each day. Read More


The Netherlands Deserves a Cycle of Appreciation

For my third bike and barge vacation, I was looking for a destination that was not too warm in the summer, not too hilly, not too expensive and full of interesting people and sites. The tour Amsterdam to Bruges fit the bill perfectly and I am now well on my way to joining the very intelligent and fun group of serial bike and bargers. Read More


Fit to Ride: Are you ready to tour by bike?

Mary • Aug 3, 2018

So you are thinking of booking a bike tour... Good for you! But...do you bike? This might sound like a ridiculous question, but trust us, it is not. Many active people, who bike only occasionally, think, because of their fitness level, they could undertake a bike tour with no problems. Most of the time, that is probably the case. Read More
