Dunescapes

Explore one of the most beautiful regions in the Netherlands with Eurobike over six days: Zeeland captivates with its relaxing coastal atmosphere, picturesque fishing villages, and culinary delights that will fuel you for the kilometers ahead. Your hotel provides first-class relaxation, while during the daily stages, you'll discover the various corners of this stunning province.

Zierikzee, your starting point for each day's journey, is a city rich in history where you can immerse yourself in culture, architecture, and diverse gastronomy during your holiday. On day 2, you'll explore some of the Zeeland islands, passing by the windmills in Colijnsplaat and visiting the Delta Works. The Grevelingenmeer is the largest saltwater lake in western Europe. Take in the extraordinary nature and wildlife as you stroll around the lake before concluding the day at the restaurants of Bruinisse.

On the third leg of the journey, you'll explore the Oosterschelde nature reserve, offering splendid opportunities for birdwatching and relaxation. Goes, meanwhile, beckons with cultural experiences and shopping - it's worth noting the Dutch are known for their fashion sense! Your Day 5 destination is Veere, a charming, historic town perfect for leisurely strolls. A boat tour on the Verse Meer marks the tranquil conclusion of your journey.

  • The imposing Delta Works refers to a system of dikes, locks, and dams designed to protect the adjacent provinces from storm surges and flooding. Thirteen structures, spanning approximately nine kilometers, shield the region from unwelcome inundation in case of emergencies.
  • The flora and fauna around the Grevelingenmeer: For a long time, the Grevelingen was a bay. Through the construction of dams, it was turned into a lake, with its salt content closely resembling that of the sea. During your circuit around it, you may be fortunate enough to spot wild horses or seals.
  • The Zeeland Bridge: As you pause in the middle of the over five-kilometer-long bridge, surrounded by the sea, a salty breeze tousles your hair, and you feel a sense of boundless freedom.

During our Zeeland Tour, you'll settle into a comfortable accommodation in Zierikzee which serves as your base for each stage. Like spokes on a wheel, the daily rides lead you in all directions, allowing for a pleasant exploration of the region. Well-maintained cycle paths make the 50 to 70-kilometer daily routes easier, and a boat tour in Veere adds a delightful change of pace.
