This 95 kilometres long route is very special because it combines relatively quiet nature with impressive views of the port of Rotterdam. The trip with the Fast Ferry from Hoek van Holland to the Maasvlakte is very nice. If you are happy, you can spot some seals (zeehonden). Who would expect that in this industrial environment?
Once you arrive at the Maasvlakte, a huge area of reclaimed land to facilitate the growth of the port of Rotterdam, it’s around 10 kilometres cycling in an industrial but quiet area. It is certainly worth the trip!
After that you arrive ‘on the old shore’ with nice villages. Alternatively you can follow the bicycle path along the high way to Rozenburg. This is a more quiet and direct bicycle path along the Brielle Maas (a lake).
The way back is via the quick and regular ferry between Rozenburg and Maassluis. From there it is straight to Delft and The Hague.
