Land of Heusden and Altena
The cruise through the three provinces of South Holland, Gelderland and North Brabant is one of Spido’s favorite day trips. With good reason. Because this special day trip, which starts in Rotterdam, gives a beautiful view of the typical Dutch river landscape. The trip ends in the Land of Heusden and Altena, where you can enjoy this special region. For lovers of boating, this day trip offers a unique opportunity to see our country literally at its widest.
Sailing together through the Netherlands
The Netherlands is known for its polders and rivers. You will experience this landscape excellently from the water. During the cruise, beautiful vistas pass you by, interspersed with a view of atmospheric cities like Dordrecht and Gorinchem and charming fortified towns like Woudrichem and Heusden. Both inside and outside from our ship you have a great view of all this beauty. What gives the trip something extra: on the busy waterways you will see many ships and pleasure craft passing by.
Sailing on the rivers
As we depart from the heart of Rotterdam in the morning, the skyline waves to us. We set sail in an easterly direction. The route consists of a round of rivers and takes us across the Nieuwe Maas, the North, the Lower and Upper Merwede, the Andel and Bergse Maas, the Amer and, on the return trip, the Hollands Diep, the Old and the New Maas. Here the bustle and liveliness on and around the water is striking. And the towers of the Rotterdam skyline seem even higher. A special experience during the cruise offers the passage of the Wilhelminasluis, built in 1896 near Andel in the Afgedamde Maas.
Lunch on the ship in Rotterdam
Right after you have settled into a spot with a good view, the crew will treat you to a cup of coffee or tea with a piece of apple pie with whipped cream. Along the way, from the wheelhouse, the captain tells interesting facts about what is gliding past us outside. Halfway through the day we serve an extensive buffet lunch.
