Slip into your hiking boots and walk towards the horizon! Walk through vast polders, breath-taking nature reserves, along wide beaches or through characteristic villages—Goeree-Overflakkee has it all!
Determining where and how far you want to walk is easy using the network of walking routes. Walk from junction to junction using the clear map, available from the Tourist Information Inspiration Point. Flexibility and freedom; no walk is the same.
What makes Goeree-Overflakkee unique? Nowhere in the Netherlands will you find such diverse landscapes in such close proximity of each other. Flower dykes, dune grasslands, woodland and sandbanks, all which can be seen during one and the same walk. There are also areas outside the dykes where the sea has free rein. Water and wind continuously form the landscape. The chances are that when you visit these areas again, the landscape has changed beyond recognition.
Take a city walk through the 700-year-old city of Goedereede where time seems to have stood still. The walking route through Middelharnis and Sommelsdijk takes you along the rich agricultural and fishing past of the island. Cultural heritage is never far on Goeree-Overflakkee.
