Explore a different way of discovering the Northern Islands of Germany by so-called island hopping. These biking holidays combine fresh North-sea climate, flat natural landscapes, a lot of interesting culture and hospitality as well as ideal cycle paths. Follow us to hidden moor villages, green dykes and idyllic marshes.

Explore the culture of Störtebeker’s region or the tea, an East-Friesian national beverage. Rest at "leaning" churches and historic chieftain fortresses and discover picturesque little villages of this unique region. Optional highlight is a day on island Norderney.

This trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Emden
On arrival day you will have a welcome briefing in the afternoon. Afterwards you receive your rental bikes. Enjoy your time in Emden by discovering its harbour, the art hall and the “Otto” house.

Day 2: Excursion to Borkum
Already on your first day the island hopping starts. By ferry you get in two hours to the island of Borkum, the biggest east-Frisian Island with an offshore climate. Explore the island on 130 km bike paths or cycle along the 28 km long sandy beach. Relaxation pure! In the late afternoon you go back to Emden where you stay overnight again.

Day 3: Emden – Norden (approx. 55 km)
Today you cycle to the picturesque fisher village Greetsiel. It is the biggest crab-fisher port of Weser-Ems region. Don’t pass by without having a couple of shrimps. Past the bay of Ley – where you might be lucky to spot seals – you cycle to Norden.

Day 4: Excursion to island Norderney
Today again you take the ferry and go in one hour to the island of Norderney, which is the oldest health-bath on the North Sea and has been sought after for more than 200 years by persons looking for recuperation. This island is ideally suited to be explored by bicycle. Enjoy the island, the beach-life and National Park Wattenmeer (mud-flats).

Day 5: Norden – Langeoog (approx. 34 km)
Along old fortresses you cycle to Dornum with its beautiful water castle and on to Bensersiel. From there you go by ferry to the island of Langeoog. Enjoy your two overnights on this car-free island!

Day 6: A day on island Langeoog
Discover the beauty of this island where singer Lale Andersen (Lili Marleen) lived. Unique are the sand dunes, which are sometimes even 20 metres high. Enjoy the flair of the island, the healthy air and relax during your bike tour or at the beach.

Day 7: Island Langeoog – Aurich – Emden (approx. 65 km)
You leave Langeoog in the morning. Back on the main land you cycle along the Ems Jade canal which leads you nearly car-free to Emden.

After this eventful Island hopping you will now set out on your way home. Of course you can always extend your bicycle tour with extra nights in Emden. We are very pleased to arrange additional accommodation for you.

Conquer the North Sea region by bike!

Logo of the North Sea Cycle RouteThe Vikings did it via ship, the Frieslands used horses and feed, but today, it is the best way to conquer the North Sea region by bike. Let the raw beauty of the North Sea Cycle Path whisk you away from the everyday life! The international long-distance cycling route guides you on 5942 kilometres along the coast of the North Sea and was opened in 2001 as the so called EuroVelo 12.

The North Sea Cycle Path and the Cycle Paths around Eastern Friesland offer the finest pleasures for cycling: Along the dykes or behind them, sheltered from the wind, you will cycle through sleepy villages, lush green meadows and golden waving fields. Thereby, you can always enjoy the view on the North Sea as well as a fresh and salty sea breeze...

Besides, your cycling tours allow unique side trips into the most beautiful cities of Eastern Friesland as e.g. to the North Sea islands Borkum, Norderney and Langeoog. The cycle routes are easy to handle and nearly always follow the dykes.
