Idyllic villages, meandering dykes flanked with orchards - the LF17 takes you through the finest part of the Betuwe region, known for its fruit production. A must do in the spring!

Although it was only intended as a connection route between Gorinchem and Wijk bij Duurstede, the LF17 is favourite amongst Dutch cyclists, especially when the fruit trees are in bloom. The LF17 is part of the Rhine Cycle Route - the Dutch section of the international Rhine Cycle Route.
Combine this long-distance route with a day trip. We recommend:
