The Blossom Route is set out in the south eastern part of Noordoostpolder. This beautiful tour takes in the heart of the blossom region, which is of course at its most beautiful in spring when the fruit trees are in full bloom.
Springtime makes you doubt the evidence of your own eyes when confronted with such stunning beauty. The fruit trees blossom in March, April and May, although not all at the same time. The first to show are the snow white cherry and plum blossoms, followed by the white pear blossoms and, finally, the pink apple blossom. April in particular is known as the blossom month.
This is also a great route to cycle in autumn, as you can almost 'see' and 'hear' the apples, pears, plums and cherries growing on the trees. Many companies will even let you pick your own fruit.
The route goes on to meander along fields and woods, where you can admire such diverse meadow and water birds as lapwings, moorhens, wild ducks and fishing herons.
The route starts at the Vink Fruit Farm, where you can park your car and use the electric bike recharging point.
