Gallant:
Amsterdam (NL) - Amsterdam (NL)

17 October - 21 October 2016

No places available – Take a few days off your busy schedule for a nice autumn sailing holiday. Get adventurous, get satisfied, and charge your batteries for a long winter ahead. Leave Amsterdam on the 17th of October and sail where the winds take you (the plan is to reach the coast of Great Britain). Disembark the Gallant back in Amsterdam and extend your vacation with a couple of days in the city of bicycles and canals. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

With more bicycles than people, cycling is an integral part of Amsterdam's DNA. Hop on and see the city like the locals do! Winding waterways, idyllic bridges and historic buildings - one of the most memorable ways to truly see Amsterdam is from the canals. Amsterdam has a full cultural agenda showcasing the very best festivals, nightlife, exhibitions & events, plus there is enough practical tourist info, hotel, museum, excursion & attraction listings, you won't miss a thing!
