Two Magnifiques for 2016

Posted on July 1, 2015 by

Some exciting news for fans of bike and boat cycling holidays. In 2016 the very popular Magnifique will be joined by her new sister ship Magnifique II. The new vessel, due to enter service next spring, will offer the same high standards of elegance and style as her sibling. The two boats will operate the Amsterdam – Bruges Bike and Boat Tour all Summer as well as the  4 night Tulip Fields Bike and Boat Tour on selected dates in March, April and May.

Magnifique II will offer 4 upper deck suites, 13 lower deck twin cabins and one lower deck single cabin,  all of which will be spacious and very well appointed. On the main deck there will be a comfortable salon/restaurant area with bar. Large doors will open onto a partially roofed sundeck.

The original Magnifique probably needs no introduction but just in case, the short video below gives a brief tour of her lovely cabins and public areas. As well as operating the above tours with her new sibling, Magnifique I will also operate the Bruges – Brussels Bike and Boat Tour on selected dates in May, July and August.

 Contact us today to reserve your 2016 bike and boat holiday on-board either of these lovely vessels.

Our easy cycling holidays offer short daily rides on mostly level terrain. A typical day’s ride will take 2 – 3 hours at a leisurely pace and the remainder of the day will be free for you to explore further or simply relax. These rides are particularly recommended for newcomers to cycling holidays and for families.

Our leisurely cycle holidays will suit those who are reasonably fit through regular exercise of one kind or another – not necessarily cycling. On the whole, the terrain will be level but there may also be a few small hills to contend with along the way too. Daily rides will typically take around 3 – 4 hours to complete.

Our moderate cycle holidays are for regular cyclists, who are used to longer rides with regular climbs. A good level of fitness is needed and you can expect to be in the saddle for between 4 and 5 hours each day.

These holidays are for seasoned cyclists who cycle long distances regularly and who enjoy the thrill of long days in the saddle. There will undoubtedly be some challenging climbs along the way and you can expect to cover between 55 and 75 miles each day.
