Nieuwkoopse Plassen

A great day-trip paddling the river De Meije and the Nieuwkoopse Plassen (22km).

Started at the parking of the barn De Kievit of Natuurmonumenten (Hollandsekade 23A, 3651 LS, Woerdense Verlaat) with restroom and even showers.

We choose to paddle the river De Meije first. At several moments you are offered the possibility to turn right and pass an unmanned lock which can be openen by you. After passing the lock you will arrive at the Nieuwkoopse Plassen.

During the trip you will have ample opportunity to take a break (see markers).
