The LF Zuiderzee Route is a round trip around the former Zuiderzee that starts and finishes in Amsterdam.

You can cycle a LF route as separate long-distance route, or - as the LF routes form a network across Holland - combine them into a route of your own. Combining the LF routes often gives you a more varied route and allows you to get back to your starting point.
