Area InformationFor Holland

It’s not called the lowlands for nothing with half the country being less than a metre above sea level. You can be assured of almost entirely flat riding from place to place and the experience of crossing the Dutch polders, land reclaimed from the sea and which help provide the Netherlands with such fertile land.
