May 28, 2019
On this bike tour you cycle through Flevoland - the youngest province of the Netherlands. In fact, before the 1950s, it was still completely on the seabed of the Zuiderzee. After this had been diked as IJsselmeer, began with the draining of the Noordoostpolders and the Flevolandpolders, which together form today the province Flevoland. When draining, however, it was found that continued to collect water at the lowest points on the northern edge of Flevolandpolders. Since the area was not needed, it lay fallow and developed into a bog biotope - the Oostvaardersplassen.Today, this is under nature conservation and offers many animals an idyllic home. On our route we will take you around the Oostvaardersplassen and from the bike path you will have wonderful views of the vast moorland and, of course, the IJsselmeer. A short detour will take you to the port of Lelystad. There you can visit the faithful replica of the East India sailor Batavia.
