Go with your very own flow … in Friesland & true Dutch style   

Experience the ultimate freedom that the combination of boating and cycling in Holland can offer, with a self-drive motor cruiser holiday from Holland-by-Bike.

Discover Friesland’s beautiful waterways from the helm of your very own cruiser for a week or two, mooring up in lively little marinas or the quietest countryside spots and - if you choose to include bikes in your holiday package - cycling off to explore the verdant countryside and charmingly historic villages of Holland’s lake district.    

Easy does it

Skippering your own boat along the Frisian canals just couldn’t be easier. No driving licence is required and the little lakes and waterways are very leisure-traffic friendly. Needless-to-say the cycling is typically gentle too, even when the Frisian area of Gaasterland adds a rolling hill or two. What’s more, at Holland-by-Bike, we’ve been welcoming guests at our local marina at Sneek for many years now, showing them the ropes (as well as the cruiser controls and their bicycles!) and learning from their needs. As a result, you can rest assured that our comprehensive fleet of rental cruisers has been selected very much with you and your relaxing, independent holiday experience in mind.    

Your boating & cycling holiday, your way

At Holland-by-Bike we offer a wide range of motor cruisers for hire from Sneek, sleeping from two to nine people or more. Our three classes of boat – Elite, Standard and Budget – offer different levels of equipment and/or service and good value for money. Of course, we also arrange great rental bikes and full route packs too.

If you’re new to boating or just want a little more advice about how to choose the right cruiser for your holiday, do get in touch. We look forward to sharing not just our experience and local knowledge, but our true Dutch insight and enthusiasm for this outstandingly beautiful area, so you can use our insider tips to plan your taste of Holland all your own way.
