Sailing holidays on an individual basis

Delivery trips

From Franeker in the Netherlands, Avatar starts on a wonderful sailing trip along the Dutch and German Wadden islands to Kiel (Germany). On Monday 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 Holtenau.

From May 13 to 16, 2019 the Avatar will sail from Hamburg on the Elbe and the Kiel Canal to Kiel. During a stop in Glückstadt you have the opportunity to admire the beautiful historic buildings in the Old Town. If the wind permits we will sail on the Elbe. In the Kiel Canal we will sail with engine.
