Welcome to Zelf Varen Breda

Zelf Varen Breda is one of the fine labels of Groepsuitjes (Group Outings) Breda. It started in 2008 with the organization of a group sailing through the Breda Singels  and now we really are a household name in the area. Discover the Breda canals in a real relaxed way during a self-sailing trip and combine it with tasty snacks and drinks on board while enjoying the outdoor life.


Our route

During your Self Sailing trip across the Breda Singels you will experience a fantastic combination of beautiful attractions like ‘t Spanjaardsgat, ‘t Kasteel (Castle) of Breda, the Koepelgevangenis (prison) and, not in the least, the magnificent Valkenburgpark. Halfway you will make a small detour towards the Mark, a small river, where the canal is quite narrow and its surroundings greener!
