The peripheral lakes of Flevoland consist of a large chain of lakes. These are the only border lakes in the whole of the Netherlands. This route takes you along the Eemmeer, the Nijkerkernauw and the Nuldernauw and you make a short crossing with a ferry. Enjoying along the water!

The Eemmeer, the Nijkerkernauw and the Nuldernauw
On this route you get on your bike on the edge of the Eemmeer. This lake, together with the southern shore of the Gooimeer, is a Natura 2000 area. The sheltered lakes with reed beds along the shore are a paradise for birds. Especially on the islands in the lakes you will find many birds such as water rails, reed warblers, seagulls and various types of ducks. You then cycle along the narrow border lakes Nijkerkernauw and Nuldernauw. From Zeewolde you make the crossing to the other bank with a bicycle and pedestrian ferry. You then cycle to Huizen to make the crossing again via a bridge.

Steam pumping station Hertog Reijnout
On the banks of the Nijkerkernauw you will find the steam pumping station Hertog Reijnout and the Arkemheen visitor center. This steam pumping station was built in 1882 to drain an area of approximately 3000 hectares. The pumping station was in operation until 1983. After that, the work was taken over by an electric pumping station. Nowadays you can take a look at the pumping station and in the accompanying Visitor Center you can learn more about the Arkemheen polder.
