Mountain bike trails
The mountain bike trails in Zeeland are exciting and challenging. There are sandy tracks, mud tracks and more than enough opportunity for getting dirty. In fact there is a broad network of trails that take you on and off road. In Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, there is even a trail that takes you over the border into Belgium. This mountain bike network crosses from East and West Flanders (Oost-Vlaanderen and West-Vlaanderen) and on into Flemish Brabant (Vlaams Brabant).
Why not try exploring Zeeland on horseback or in a horse-drawn cart. The region´s network of bridleways is suitable for gentle canters through picturesque villages as well as more energetic gallops through the countryside.
