Overview

What to expect

Sand, sea and easy cycling – Zeeland is made for relaxing cycle tours, and this itinerary gives you the flexibility of shorter or longer days in the saddle. A delta province of reclaimed marshland, this south-west region is one of the flattest places in Holland yet it’s full of diversity and packed with history. The medieval town of Veere is an ideal base for a four-night break and you’ll have plenty of time to stroll through the streets of church spires, historic warehouses and impressive mansions.

As you ride past polders, dykes and asparagus fields, you’ll visit charming towns and drop in on welcoming coastal communities. The provincial capital of Middleburg is a particularly good place to try local specialities of smoked eels, cured salmon and Zeeland pancakes. Aside from historic sites and watery meadows, Zeeland’s pristine beaches are one of its most attractive features – expect long strands of golden powder, sprinkled with shells.

  • Pristine sands, watery meadows and fields of asparagus
  • Coastal towns serving pancakes, pastries and smoked fish
  • Base yourself in the centre of the medieval town of Veere
  • Flat coastal cycling, with options for longer or shorter routes.

The Trip

Route

Itinerary

  • Day 1: Arrive in Veere

    Make your way to the small medieval town of Veere and stroll along the quayside and around the market square. Get into the holiday mood by relaxing with a drink in this peaceful setting.

  • Day 2: Beaches and villages 31 miles (50 km)

    Follow the Veer Lake and coastal tracks through the dunes to reach the idyllic town of Domburg, the most popular resort in Zeeland. Visit the wide beaches and take in magnificent sea views from the former island of Walcheren. See the gothic-style lighthouse at Westkapelle and cycle along the Westerschelde passageway to the port of Vlissingen, before returning to Veere along scenic country lanes.

  • Day 3: Delta Works 34 miles (55 km)

    Ride past Oosterscheldekering, Zeeland’s largest Delta Works – a 9km long storm barrier to protect from flooding. Continue through the dunes, passing welcoming villages and pristine sands, with screeching gulls overhead. On the way back, stop off at the Neeltje-Jans artificial island, walk through the storm surge barrier and taste Zeeland pancakes.

    Extend your cycling with a visit to the towns of Haamstede and Renesse, before returning south along the coast to the Oosterschelde barrier and on to Veere.

  • Day 4: Goes and Middelburg 38 miles (60 km)

    Cycle to the Hanseatic town of Goes to visit the pretty harbour and historic ramparts. Continue through the orchards of Kloetinge village and tour along narrow country roads to Middleburg, capital of Zeeland. Cycle through the town’s ancient streets, stopping off to try locally smoked fish.

  • Day 5: Depart from Veere

    Check out after breakfast and make your way home or continue your holiday in Holland.
