Cycling in Holland - Planning your routes wisely

Holland is the cycling country par excellence. It is therefore not surprising that you can cycle from your holiday home along 100 km of cycle paths, winding through protected dune landscapes, vast fields, through picturesque villages and over dikes with magnificent views. You can take a rest on the many benches and picnic tables or enjoy a refreshment in the bicycle-friendly cafés. The flat natural landscape and the kilometres of well-paved cycle paths are just as suitable for safe inline skating.

If you have not booked any accommodation yet, you will find our wide range of holiday parks & holiday homes in Ouddorp here. Would you like to explore the area with your four-legged friend? Book your accommodation for a holiday with your dog.

Is it compulsory to wear a helmet when cycling in the Netherlands?

Cycling in the Netherlands is very safe. In many places, cyclists have the right of way and accidents are rare. You can choose whether you want to wear a helmet while cycling, but it is not compulsory.

Walking in Holland by the sea

Of course, you can also explore everything on foot. A large number of walking routes, which start right in front of the door, lead you through the surrounding nature reserves and past bird-watching stations. From a short walk to a long walk, everything is possible. Choose the route according to length and your personal interests.

Take a break in one of the quiet villages and regain your strength in one of the cosy pubs. Maps with populair walking routes are available at the VVV office in Ouddorp.
