26,95 km cycling route from Calais to Gravelines

The Vélomaritime leaves Calais, the leading French port for crossings to England, guiding you towards Le Platier d'Oye Nature Reserve, a major European ornithological site. Welcome to the Pays des Wateringues, a part of the wider Flandres Maritimes area (French coastal Flanders)! This stage ends at Gravelines, the port's fortifications, designed by Louis XIV's great engineer Vauban, superbly preserved and a pleasure to walk around.
