Sail & Bike
Experience the best of two worlds
Our Sail & Bike Tours
Sail and Bike: Our special sail and bike tours in Scotland, Italy, the Netherlands and Denmark allow you to experience the unique atmosphere on board a traditional tall ship without having to do without the adventurous, daily cycling tours on the beautiful island and coastal landscapes.
Feel the sea breeze brush past your face by the setting of sails, and let yourself be educated on the art of sailing by an experienced sea dog or dare to take the ship’s wheel into your own hands and feel the tall ship come to life.
The cooperative experiences on board lead to a special unity within our travel groups and the atmosphere on board our tall ships is often described as extraordinary and a special experience in itself.
On our regular cycling tours the riding pace is determined by the cyclists on regular bicycles. We ask guests who have reserved an e-bike to be mindful of this and to acknowledge that also the regular cyclists need time to rest and longer to climb the hills. Thank you for your understanding.

Tall Ship Tours: Freedom of the Sea
Salty sea breeze and seaman’s yarns…
Being on board of a tall ship is like travelling back in time, in the era of the great explorers who circumnavigated the globe and the seven seas. It is like rediscovering graceful movement in a world which continues to spin fast and faster. Just travelling for the sake of travelling…
Do you wish to ‘sea’ more? Our short film about the Atlantis will explain to you why life on board of a tall ship is such a specialty.
