Explore the two largest islands in Germany, Rügen and Usedom, as well as the Mecklenburg coast between Peenemünde und Stralsund by land and sea with an experienced bike guide and on board the impressive sailing ship, the Atlantis. On this tour, we cycle through varied landscapes in one of Germany’s sunniest regions and discover the famous Rügen chalk cliffs, dense forests, typical Bodden landscapes with fine sandy beaches, and the quiet countryside, where cattle and sheep graze peacefully in green pastures. Glamorous seaside resort towns such as Binz and Karlshagen and the Hanseatic cities of Stralsund and Greifswald are well worth a visit. On board the Atlantis we are accompanied by a friendly and attentive crew and during the ship's passages we have the opportunity to help hoist the sails and enjoy the sea voyage under full sail.
The Atlantis is a guaranteed eye catcher in every harbor. Built in 1905 and christened Elbe 2, the Atlantis served faithfully as a light vessel in the North Sea, Germany. Afterwards she was elaborately restorated as a tallship for passenger cruises.
The renovation featured a classy salon, a spacious upper deck including seats and a cocktail bar as well as 16 comfortable air conditioned guest cabins including a shower and WC. A true highlight and centerpiece of the Atlantis is the open air bar, where the dedicated crew conjure creative beverages and cocktails for the guests. Mealtimes are…

Due to our international audience all Islandhopping tours are conducted bilingually, in English and German.
We reserve the right to make changes to the itinerary, depending on wind and weather conditions or due to organizational requirements. Wind and weather can significantly affect the planned tour itinerary, thus making significant changes to the route may be necessary. Should we have to sail into the wind, the engine will be used to assist. Such decisions are always up to the captain of the Atlantis.
Level 1 - 2
The daily cycling tours on this trip range between 19 – 34 mi./30 – 55 km and are of an easier difficulty level. We cycle on fairly flat terrain and asphalt roads, though some farm roads and unpaved forest paths are used at times. Main roads with heavier traffic that do not have a separate cycle path are used only in exceptional cases. There are almost no long, steep climbs on this trip, though hilly landscapes and frequent ascents and descents are to be expected. Depending on the wind direction, stronger headwinds must also be expected. This tour is primarily designed as a guided group tour. However, upon prior consultation with the tour guides and the selection of a suitable route, nothing should stand in the way of individual cycling. You are more than welcome to choose to remain on board the ship on any day rather than taking the planned route should you so desire. The daily program depends on weather conditions and the captain's decisions.
On our regular cycling tours, the cyclists on regular bicycles determine the pace. We ask guests who have reserved an e-bike to be mindful of this and to acknowledge that the regular cyclists need time to rest and take longer to climb the hills. We thank you for your understanding.
Helmet use is mandatory on all cycle tours. We strongly encourage you to bring your own (well-fitted) helmet. There are a limited number of bike helmets are available on board (reservation required).
We believe that only children in good physical condition and with a minimum age of 10 as well as previous bicycle tour experience would be able to master the cycle tours with their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1.50 m (5ft.).
The tour which you have booked requires a bike with a fully functional set of gears. Islandhopping can offer you high quality, fully serviced rental bikes perfect for the terrain of this tour.
Should you however wish to bring your own hybrid bicycle with you, please make sure to check the condition of your breaks, gears, and tires and don’t forget to bring along a puncture repair kit and the essential spare parts for your bike (e.g. brake pads and spare tubes). Your bike should be in prefect mechanical working order.
We do not allow private e-bikes on board of our boats. This decision has been made due to health and safety regulations. If you wish to ride an e-bike for the duration of your tour, please get in touch with us about the rental options.
We do not recommend bringing along private road bikes, as the thin tires are not suitable for some of the road surfaces encountered on the tours.
Liability disclaimer: Radurlaub Zeitreisen GmbH. Will not be held liable for any damages caused to private bikes during loading, unloading or other logistical handling thereof.
Please do not forget that the ship is your hotel as well as a machine, which has to be maintained and operated – day and night. A certain level of noise is therefore inevitable.
Our tall ship is too large to dock in many of the small fishing harbours we visit and therefore spends most nights on anchor. This means that a dinghy must be used to get to land. Surefootedness, balance, and a certain degree of agility are therefore required to get on and off the boat. Needless to say, our tour guides are always happy to lend a helping hand. It is also important to remember that in general, wind, swell, and tidal changes have significant influences on tours by tall ship.
This tour includes full board consisting of a breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner. Lunch usually consists of packed sandwiches.
Luggage: Please bring your personal belongings in soft, foldable travel bags, not hard cases. They will be too heavy to store in your cabin.
Payment on Board: cash only
