Charter a barge

Your own sailing hotel

Charter a barge

Besides the regular Bike & Barge tours, we can also run a tour on demand. Charter a barge for a Bike & Barge tour in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany or the rest of Europe with your friends, family or cycle club.
The intimate atmosphere, excellent care and beautiful surroundings are of course eminently suitable for a group you choose yourself. Your own sailing hotel is of course well suited for your family parties, company outings, workshops or anything else you can think of. Cycling, walking, sailing, culture trips or mini cruises: you can be inspired by one of our trips, or make one up together with us. The crew can be put to work to lighten your task as host or hostess. The chef can make sure you and your guests want for nothing in the culinary field. Want to know more? Don’t hesitate to contact us!

Welcome on board

Imagine a floating hotel following you and no lugging of luggage: that is exactly what Bike & Barge is all about! While you are calmly pedalling along, your barge is on its way to the meeting point. In the pleasant atmosphere on board you can have a chat, go through the day with the others, and enjoy the meals prepared specially for cyclists. You have your own cabin with private shower and toilet. In the evenings you can enjoy a drink in the salon or admire the setting sun on deck.

What are the cabins like?

Most cabins are 2-person cabins, but some barges also have cabins for 3 persons. There are four barge categories: Standard Plus (cabins with private shower/toilet; bunk beds), Comfort (cabins as StandardPlus but with twin beds), ComfortPlus (cabins as Comfort, small ship) and Comfort DeLuxe (a very comfortable and tastefully furnished 5-star ship; cabins have twin beds and air-conditioning). In all categories the cabins have central heating and a porthole or window.
