Sailing holidays on an individual basis

Delivery trips

Franeker (NL) - Kiel (D) and Kiel (D) - Franeker (NL)
From Franeker in the Netherlands, Avatar starts on a wonderful sailing trip along the Dutch and German Wadden islands to Kiel (Germany). On the first evening you are welcomed aboard the Avatar. First an enjoyable meal is served and after that there is time to get to know one another.

The next morning, the weather forecast and possible sailing destinations are discussed. A first stop is possible at the beautiful island Terschelling, where you will have time for hiking or biking. If wind and weather conditions permit, a visit to Helgoland is one other main attraction during this trip. About 70 km off mainland the red sand-stone rock with its green land steeply stands out against the German Sea. Because of the gulf stream Helgoland offers a good climate and unique nature. Then we set sail for the Nord-Ostsee-Canal to Kiel.

Depending on how the trip has gone up to that point, we may still have time to sail on the Baltic Sea. On the final day the trip ends in the port of Kiel.

In October we will make the trip in reverse direction.

Hamburg (D) – Kiel (D)
From 8 to 11 May 2023, the Avatar will sail from Hamburg on the Elbe and through the Nord-Ostsee-Canal to Kiel. During a stop in Glückstadt you have the opportunity to admire the beautiful historic buildings in the old city center. If the wind makes it possible, we will sail on the Elbe. On the Nord-Ostsee-Canal motorized sailing only is allowed.

Wilhelmshaven (D) – Kiel (D)
At the beginning of October 2023 you have the opportunity to sail from Wilhelmshaven (D) to Kiel. On the day of arrival, many sailing ships can be viewed in Wilhelmshaven, which are present there for the annual Wilhelmshaven Sailing Cup. If the wind is favourable, we will visit Helgoland. One day we will sail through the Nord-Ostsee-Canal to the final port of Kiel.
