Holiday tips Veerse Meer

The Veerse Meer is always within reach from your holiday home in Zeeland. In the summer months it is bustling with water sports enthusiasts, and in the low season you can really unwind here. We are happy to share our tips for a great holiday at the Veerse Meer.

Island hopping on the Veerse Meer

The Veerse Meer is about 22 kilometres long and there are 13 islands. On the island of De Haringvreter, you can spot fallow deer. Or you can watch Konik horses on the Middelplaten near Wolphaartsdijk. Hire a sloop or sailing boat and start exploring. Island hopping is the ultimate way to discover the Veerse Meer. Tip: take a well-filled picnic basket with you.

Active on the water

Visit Kanoa for an active day on the Veerse Meer. Follow a supping clinic and learn all the techniques to then discover the most beautiful spots. Hire a canoe and explore the many islands or take part in a guided canoe safari and discover the Veerse Meer. There are many more water sport activities possible such as windsurfing and canoe polo.

Bike tour Zeeland Veerse Meer

Cycling along the Veerse Meer

Make a cycling tour along the banks of the Veerse Meer. Enjoy the wide-open landscapes and cycle past various villages. Here, you can make a stop and take a rest. You can shorten or extend the routes yourself using the useful junction network. The following routes are highly recommended:

Along the coast of Noord-Beveland

A beautiful route along the sparkling Veerse Meer and the Oosterschelde. Beautiful views; spotting birds and, above all, enjoying the wonderful landscape of Zeeland.

Around the Veerse Meer

Cycle through the polders of Zeeland and along the Veerse Meer. Cross over with the ferry and view the surroundings from the other side. Who knows, you might spot your holiday home at the Veerse Meer.

Walks along the Veerse Meer

Walk along the shores of Veerse Meer or through one of the many nature reserves. Spot wild horses or Scottish Highlanders and unwind in the beautiful nature of Zeeland. We have listed our favourite walks along the banks of the Veerse Meer for you:

Nature reserve de Schotsman

Here you can choose between the green or yellow walking route. Spot the grazing Scottish Highlanders and enjoy the beautiful view over the Veerse Meer. Are you an early bird? Then enjoy a walk during sunrise and who knows, you might even spot some deer. 

De Goudplaat

This nature reserve was created by the construction of the Veerse Gatdam and used to be a sandbank. Now you can take lovely walks there. The blue route is highly recommended. It takes you through deciduous forest and along the shores of the Veerse Meer. You may even spot Prezwalski horses or Galloway cattle.

De Pietkreek

The Pietkreek is a side arm of the Veerse Meer. It is a shallow creek where many birds can be found. Walk along the meadows, through the woods and along the Veerse Meer. The route is about 5 km long.
