The Northern Netherlands | Feenstra river cruises

The Northern Netherlands

One of our most popular cruises and for good reason. In six days we take you to lovely Frisian fishing villages, cross the Wadden Sea for a visit to Oudeschild on Texel and visit beautiful places on the IJsselmeer.

Monday: Arnhem - Lemmer

We leave Arnhem at 9.30am and soon find ourselves on the winding IJssel. Past Hanseatic cities such as Zutphen, Deventer and Kampen we set course towards the Northern part of the Netherlands. Via the Ketelmeer and the IJsselmeer we arrive in Lemmer at the beginning of the evening.

Tuesday: Lemmer - Pikmeer & Kruiswaters - Franeker

Water-rich Friesland is on the program today. We sail to the Pikmeer via the Princess Margriet Canal and the vast Frisian lakes. Here you can take part in a boat trip(*) through one of the most beautiful unspoilt nature reserves in the Netherlands. With its beautiful lakes and canals, it is a truly unique area to sail through. During lunch we continue our journey to Franeker where we arrive in the afternoon. A visit to the Planetarium of Eise Eisinga is definitely worth it.

Wednesday: Franeker - Oudeschild (Texel)

Numerous water birds accompany our journey across the Wadden Sea and with a bit of luck we will see a group of seals on the mudflats. On Texel we moor in the fishing port of Oudeschild. Do you want to discover the island? The tour(*) across the island is highly recommended. This excursion also includes a stop at Ecomare (*).

Thursday: Oudeschild - Medemblik - Hoorn

Before breakfast we leave Texel and head for Medemblik. As soon as we have passed the Stevins locks we are on the IJsselmeer and it will not be long before we enter the port of Medemblik. Here you can take part in an excursion by steam tram (*). You drive through the West Frisian landscape from Medemblik to Hoorn, after which we also take a look at the steam tram museum in Hoorn. The Salvinia will meanwhile sail to Hoorn. After dinner you have the opportunity to visit this city.

Friday: Hoorn - Wijk bij Duurstede

We sail to Wijk bij Duurstede via the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal. This small town with a great history has developed over the centuries from a thriving trading town, to an episcopal town and from a fortified town to a commuter town.

Saturday: Wijk bij Duurstede - Arnhem

The last day of this trip has already arrived. We leave Wijk bij Duurstede and sail over the lower Rhine to Arnhem. In the morning you can enjoy coffee with something delicious and lunch will be ready for you afterwards. We will moor in Arnhem around 2pm. This will bring an end to this wonderful cruise and we will say goodbye to you. We wish you a good journey home.
