Island hopping by bike in the county of East Frisia

Between wind and waves


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.
