Being active

Fantastic outdoor opportunities

Cycle from village to village, hike through nature and dunes or get a little cooler; go blokarting or wave surfing! There is an activity nearby for everyone.

Walking

You can walk without borders with the extensive walking network. Compose your own route through the beautiful landscape; don't forget to enjoy the Burgundian side of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen in between. In short... put on your walking shoes and discover all this beauty! Walking route and junction maps are for sale in reception.

Once upon a time Zeeland had more than a hundred different ferry boats. For the people of Zeeland, these ferries were often the only connection between their own island and the rest of the world. Most ferry services are now redundant. We now have dams, bridges and tunnels. Nevertheless, a handful of ferries are still in operation. Specially designed to take cyclists and pedestrians to the other side.

Cycling

The 'farm route' is fun, with stops at farms along the way where you are shown around by the farmer or his wife. Hop on your bike and discover all the beauty in the area!

Cycle route and junction maps are available from reception. Read more about the Fietsnetwerk Zeeland (FIKS). Choose a cycling tour outside the dike with a view of the water or a wind-free route close to the dike! The routes also take you past the villages and towns of Zeeland.

Lovely routes include:

No other route has as many creeks as the Cathalijneroute. In the beginning of the Middle Ages, however, this area was cut through by many more creeks. The coastline ran where nowadays Zeeuws-Vlaanderen borders Belgium. The land was diked in, but new creeks were created by flooding. After re-embankment, the creeks eventually largely disappeared. This route also offers many reminders of the Eighty Years' War: entrenchments, lines and a fortified town.
  The border area of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and Belgium is a region with wonderful names. What about Pyramide, Mollekot, Muizenhol (mouse hole) and - the namesake of this route - Maagd van Gent (Virgin of Ghent)? This maagd (virgin) was a pub on the border between the Netherlands and Belgium and is now a hamlet, through which the national border runs. This cycle route has many charms: Biervliet and IJzendijke, old and new polders, and in Belgium, cobbled lanes and a tranquil waterway: the Leopold Canal.
