Woerden, Nieuwkoop, Meije

Located in the heart of the Netherlands, the Nieuwkoopse Plassen are a true paradise for nature lovers. This beautiful nature reserve consists mainly of low moor and marshland, and is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. When you cycle here, you find yourself in an oasis of peace and beauty.

One of the characteristics of the Nieuwkoopse Plassen is its rich bird population. The lakes and the surrounding landscapes offer an abundance of food for birds and therefore form a kind of buffet for all kinds of species. From reed birds to marsh birds, water birds to meadow birds, and even majestic birds of prey: this place is a true paradise for bird lovers. Moreover, rare bird species are increasingly spotted here, making every cycle route an adventure in itself.

But the Nieuwkoopse Plassen are not only home to birds; various mammals have also found their home here. Otters, deer, foxes, hares and ermines are just some of the animals you might encounter during your cycle route. It is a unique chance to come face to face with the inhabitants of this beautiful area.

As you cycle along the lakes, water lilies and yellow plump will brighten your path. In spring, pink finches, cuckoo flowers and water mint bloom on the banks of the lakes: a true explosion of colours!

The Peat Route makes you marvel at the beauty of nature again and again. A cycling adventure you will remember for a long time.
