Polders that stretch as far as you can see, ditches, canals and lakes, you will find it all in the head of North Holland. This route takes you from Anna Paulowna through the polders to the IJsselmeer coast where you can get a breath of fresh air. Time to hit the road!

From the Amstelmeer to the IJsselmeer
The Oostpolder of Anna Paulowna forms the starting point of this route. From here you cycle through the polders to the Amstelmeer. This lake is especially popular with windsurfers. Originally this was the transition between the Zuiderzee and the Waddenzee, but nowadays the lake is closed off from the sea by the Amsteldiepdijk on one side and closed off from the IJsselmeer by the Wieringermeerpolder on the other side. You then continue to the IJsselmeer coast via Slootdorp, Wieringerwerf and Kreileroord. Enjoy the view over the seemingly endless IJsselmeer and then set course for the polders. The route takes you through Middenmeer and Wieringerwaard back to Anna Paulowna.

The history of Anna Paulowna
