On this wonderful holiday cruise aboard the clipper Elizabeth, you will discover the best of the beautiful water-rich Dutch provinces of North Holland and Friesland. From the water you will enjoy flat polder landscapes, historic windmills, UNESCO World Heritage mudflats, hidden villages on the edge of the Frisian lakes and the many picturesque harbour towns along the coast of the IJsselmeer. A very varied and extremely unique journey!

Day 1: Lemmer - Hoorn

From 12:00 you can embark on board the three-masted clipper Elizabeth. On board you will meet the hospitable crew and your fellow passengers. After lunch you set course for Hoorn. This small town was of great importance in the time of trade. Discover the traditional architecture, the picturesque harbours and the old town.

Day 2: Hoorn - Medemblik

From Hoorn we continue to the medieval town of Medenblik in the IJsselmeer. Medemblik was once an important trading centre, mainly thanks to its location on the Zuiderzee, now the IJsselmeer. Count Florens V had a large castle built so that he could keep his people well under control from there. Today, this castle is known as Radboud Castle and is open to visitors. So it is worth taking a walk to the castle after arriving in the Haven.

Day 3: Medenblik - Texel

After breakfast it is time to cast off and leave the harbour of Medenblik. Together we will set sail. First we go to the lock at Den Oever. We will sail through the dike that separates the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer to the lock. Once in the lock, we can already see the outline of the Wadden Sea island of Texel in the distance. On Texel you have the possibility to rent bicycles to explore the island. The dunes and wide beaches of Texel are breathtaking!

Day 4: Texel - Terschelling

From Texel, the Elizabeth sails across the unique Wadden Sea nature reserve to Terschelling. With a bit of luck, you will see seals sunbathing on a sandbank on the way! The arrival on Terschelling is an experience in itself. The Elizabeth moors in the cosy harbour of the village of West Terschelling. The striking square Brandaris lighthouse can be seen from afar. Beautiful villages, high dunes, long sandy beaches and lots of nature await you on Terschelling. Take a walk through West Terschelling or go to the ''groenen strand''.

Day 5: Terschelling - Makkum

Today you will notice that you have become a real sailing pro, the sails go up hand over hand. You already know how to tie the knot to make sure everything is securely fastened. The way from Terschelling towards Makkum leads along shallows and sandbanks, which the captain knows how to avoid. At Kornwerdersand, we lock again to reach fresh water. Away from the tidal water, on to Makkum. Today's destination. In the Middle Ages, the village became world-famous for its Makkum pottery. Makkum pottery is still very popular. Nowadays Makkum is very popular for water sports.

Day 6: Makkum - Heeg

The Elizabeth continues across the IJsselmeer and we set course for the small fishing village of Heeg (or Heech, as they say in Friesland). Once again we have to pass through a small lock, the Dutch are masters at locks. When you finally arrive, there are many pubs, cafés and restaurants right on the waterfront, as well as in the cosy, well-arranged centre. Or take a walk and discover the traces of eel fishing in the magnificent facades, while strolling past the shops and coming across listed houses again and again.

Day 7: Heeg- Lemmer

The last day of sailing is upon us, today we set course for Lemmer. Do you have some time left in Lemmer? Then you should definitely see the Ir. D.F. Wouda pumping station, the largest still functioning steam-driven pumping station in the world, which has now been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But Lemmer is also a great place to take one last plunge into the waters of the Ijsselmeer.
After arriving in Lemmer, it's time to say goodbye to the crew and fellow travellers. See you soon!
