Cycling routes  

There are two ANBW cycling routes that lead through National Park De Biesbosch. The 33-kilometre Eiland van Dordrecht Route runs along the Wantij river through the Nieuwe Dordtse Biesbosch and De Elzen forest. On the Biesboschroute of 48 km, you will cycle through both the Holland and Brabant parts of De Biesbosch. The Toeristisch Overstap Punt (TOP; Tourist Switching Point) at the water bus stop Hollandse Biesbosch has an information board that provides tips for cycling and walking routes.

Editors’ tip: Dordrecht and the starting points of these cycling routes can also be easily reached using the water bus from Rotterdam!
