Sailing on the Wad in the autumn holidays!

Sailingtrip for everyone

The trip

On Sunday  you are more than welcome on board the clipper from 9 p.m. The following morning the ship will leave the harbour and head for one of the Waddensea Lake. You will ramble across the Waddensea Lake for a few days and enjoy the beautiful islands. On Friday you will moor at Harlingen around 3 p.m.

Autumn holidays for sailors

Do you like horse riding and sailing? Then come along in October and enjoy beach rides on horseback. We take a two-hour ride on two islands on reliable KWPN horses or Friesian horses. On Vlieland you can ride Icelanders, this is an experience that we can definitely recommend. Riding an Icelandic horse is also comfortable for people with back problems. If you don’t want to ride a horse, you can also take a beautiful bike ride through the woods and dunes. There are additional costs for renting the horses and bikes.
