Around the Markermeer - 5 days

Day 1 - Arrival in HuizenYou spend the night in a hotel, beautifully situated at the Gooimeer.Day 2 - Huizen - Volendam/Katwoude - 61 or 64 kmOn your first day of cycling you will follow the southern shore of the IJsselmeer until you reach Muiden, where you will find the medieval castle of Muiderslot. From here, it is a short ride to Amsterdam, where you will cycle through the city centre before crossing the IJ by ferry. A pleasant cycle along the former estuary brings you to Waterland, with its bird-rich peat meadows, ancient canals and watercourses. In the island village of Marken, where the houses are built of wood, it almost seems as if time has stood still. Travelling either by boat or via Monnickendam you will arrive in Volendam. Day 3 - Volendam or Katwoude - Enkhuizen - 51 or 54 kmToday you will cycle over the old Zuiderzee dyke by way of the town of Edam – famous for its cheese – and the ancient and picturesque town of Hoorn, where you will see many imposing buildings from the Golden Age (17th century). In Enkhuizen, where you will spend the night, you should plan to take a city tour and a visit to the Zuiderzee Museum is also recommended.Day 4 - Enkhuizen - Lelystad 31 or 58 kmThe day starts with a boat trip on the IJsselmeer to the fishing village of Urk. Here you can cycle to Schokland, like Urk, a former island. Both of these unique enclaves justly deserve their place on the World Heritage List. After this, you will ride through the Flevopolder, 'the new land', to Lelystad.Day 5 - Lelystad - Huizen and departure - 50 kmYour route will take you past the Batavia Yard, where ships from the Golden Age, important to the maritime history of the Netherlands, are reconstructed. After that you will reach the Oostvaardersplassen. This unique nature reserve will give you some idea of how the Netherlands would have looked thousands of years ago. Your return to Huizen will take you along the banks of the Gooi.
