Ijzendijke is the starting point of this bicycle tour full of Zeeland nature and history. Soon you pass by the Paulinaschor, a picturesque salt marsh area in the Westerschelde. Be surprised by the variety of flora and fauna, with the oystercatcher and the hen harrier stealing the show. While breathing in the salty air, continue along the banks towards Biervliet, where the Landingsmonument offers an imposing reminder of the liberation period. The bronze plaques and relief make you pause to reflect on the past.
After the historical tribute, you will be surprised by a beautiful stretch of water: the Braakmankreek. Water sports enthusiasts enjoy themselves to the full here, while water birds find the tranquility they seek. Continue your route and let the rustic charm of Voorste Kreek enchant you. This natural area, a heaven for botanists with rare finds such as wild celery, is sure to charm you. The final eye-catcher of this tour is De Witte Juffer at IJzendijke. This beautifully restored mill tells a story of craftsmanship and tradition, and is a worthy finale to an exceptional route full of diversity and beauty.
