Spakenburg round tour

2 hour (38.0 km)

You will cycle through the nature reserve of Arkemheen-Eemland.  Wading birds on the land, grazing cows in the fields, apparently endless vistas and blooming flowers! 

EXPERIENCE CULTURE & TRADITIONS
Tap into the history of the fishing village of Spakenburg. Pay a visit to the museum harbour, where culture and traditions come together. Here you’ll find the oldest shipyard in the Netherlands where shipwrights are still hard at work every day, maintaining the world’s biggest fleet of ‘botters’, a special type of wooden, flat-bottomed fishing boat.

You can download this cycling route on your GPS device. It is also available in the Fiestroutes door Amersfoort en Omstreken booklet which you can buy at the tourist office in Amersfoort for €4.95.

Are you not in possession of a bike? It is possible to rent bikes at one of the bike rental agencies in Amersfoort or in the surrounding area.
