This weekend journey on a beautiful Dutch Tall Ship will take you from Den Helder to Rotterdam. Maybe you want to try out sailing for the first time on this relatively quiet journey, away from the crowds of big events? Or perhaps you’re an experienced Tall Ships sailor who wants to use this chance to start the season with a short trip? No matter your experience level, this is a perfect voyage for the early spring. Places in 2 person cabins available for € 250 per person. Open for Windseekers of 15 years and older.

Ports

Den Helder is a beautiful town in the Netherlands, situated at the very tip of the North Holland province. Visit the Marinemuseum to learn more about the country’s marine traditions, take a walk in the botanical gardens Oranjerie De Groene Parel Den Helder or admire sealife in the Fort Kijkduin Museum and Aquarium.

Rotterdam is the largest port of Europe, and a modern, bustling town. Much of the historic city centre was destroyed during World War II, but extensive rebuilding resulted in a modern, multicultural city with many architectural highlights. Rotterdam has excellent cultural facilities and a diverse nightlife; during the summer the city hosts a large number of events. Discover the city by bicycle and go for a coffee in Hotel New York, the former headquarters of the Holland America Line.
