Multi-day tours - Active Holidays
To make the canoe trip as pleasant as possible, there are a few things that are useful to know. The multi-day trips are active holidays where long distances are covered in a Canadian canoe. During the trip you will sail through many beautiful nature reserves interspersed with a local town or village. You come to places where not many people sail.
The duration of the tour can be shortened or extended in consultation.
 

Look for all information under the heading multi-day tours. Below is a brief summary of all the tours out there.

 

Multi-day tour 'Primus inter pares'

 

  • Departure from: The Rhine River.
  • End point: The Rhine River.
  • Sailing time: 2 days.
  • Distance: 55.8 km.
  • Price per person: 3 days € 45,- p.p. 4 days € 60,- p.p.

This very scenic trip is a great challenge for seasoned canoeists. But it is also doable for the novice canoeist. Try it yourself! On this multi-day trip you will spend the night at a B&B or campsite.

This is a very beautiful tour that starts at the Rhine River. From there follow the Kromme Rijn to the city to arrive on the other side of Utrecht at one of the most historic locks in Utrecht; the Vecht lock. When you arrive here, you go through the lock to continue sailing on De Vecht. This beautiful stretch of river runs from Utrecht to Muiden and has something for everyone. The first part you will sail through the city, but soon you will find yourself in the nature around Utrecht. Along the way you will visit various places such as Maarssen, Vleuten and Breukelen.

The journey continues through the locks to De Vecht. When you arrive at De Vecht, you sail back against the current. Arriving at Breukelen you sail through one of the self-operated locks. These lead to the entrance of Loosdrecht, from here it is only a short boat ride. On Loosdrecht you sail to the campsite of your choice.

On the third day you will sail back to Utrecht via De Vecht. Fortunately, this route goes with the flow so that you can complete it in a day. It is possible to make an overnight stay if you find the distance of the last day too long or if you just want to enjoy another day on the water.

The last part of the tour follows the route back to Utrecht. After having passed the Weerdsluis, the tour continues under the small bridges and over the narrow waters that bring you back to the Rijnstroom.
