This 50 km Zeeland bicycle tour has one constant: the Veerse Meer. This brackish water lake is the result of the Delta Works in this region, carried out to protect the province of Zeeland from high water from the sea. To the west, the Veerse Gatdam provides the separation from the North Sea, and to the east it is the Zandkreek Dam that separates the Veerse Meer from the Oosterschelde.
The route includes a ferry crossing and takes you further past picturesque landscapes and historic landmarks. One of these is the Goudplaat, a beautiful nature reserve that owes its charm to the przewalski horses and the varied vegetation you can admire along its shores. This nature reserve is an example of how nature, with a little help, restored itself after the construction of the Delta Works.
Also on the way: Veere Lock. An extraordinary feat of hydraulic engineering that connects Lake Veere and the Canal through Walcheren. The lock, which is free to visit, is not only functional but also a National Monument, making it a fascinating stop for lovers of maritime history.
