Route
Day 1: Arrival Pieterburen
Day 2: Pieterburen - Groningen
Day 3: Groningen - Pieterburen
Day 4: Departure

Day 1:    Arrival Pieterburen

Arrive in Pieterburen and settle in at your accommodation. Then jump right in with a visit to the seal centre or stroll the seawall for a view of the ever-changing mudflats.

Day 2:    Pieterburen - Groningen
44 km

Wake up to a peaceful morning in Pieterburen and the excitement of starting your trip. Ride to Kaakhorn among huge fields of grain and potatoes discovering ‘unknown’ villages like Westernieland and Den Andel, secrets known only to artists. Roll onward to Onderdendam’s beautiful spot on the Damsterdiep and follow the water’s edge to Winsum, recently voted the Netherlands’ most beautiful village. Wind through unique waterscapes along the Reitdiep / Hunzedal, then take a short boat journey for lunch at Cafe Hammingh or Garnwerd 'aan Zee'. Pedal into the city of Groningen on the Pieterpad pilgrimage route and relax on a Grote Markt terrace or the Forum rooftop.

Day 3:    Groningen - Pieterburen
52 km

Take in a bit of the city then ride off into peaceful green countryside. The busy university vibe gives way to wide open space and marvellous mound villages like Middelstum and Kantens appear. This is the real Hogeland, all lush and green. From Usquert far-reaching views reveal Noordpolderzijl on the dike with the Wadden Sea just beyond. Pause for some refreshment at ‘t Zielhoes then cycle a section outside the dike, testing your legs against the wind. Then take some time to rest and relax in Pieterburen before you depart. 

Day 4:    Departure

Is it already time to go? Make time, if you can, to tour the Hogeland via Zoutkamp and linger in Lauwersmeer National Park. Celebrate with a fresh fish lunch at the harbour, just where boats depart for Schiermonnikoog. Perhaps an idea for your next visit?
