Gravelines / Calais
To date, this phase has been partially developed, with the authorities working to ensure continuity by 2021 (see technical details below). Temporary itineraries will be proposed very soon on the site, stay connected :)

This stage of La Vélomaritime takes you, just after Gravelines, to La Réserve Naturelle du Platier d'Oye, one of the major ornithological sites in Europe. Welcome to the "Land of the Wateringues" in Maritime Flanders!
When you arrive in Calais by bike, the first French port for crossings to England, don't board immediately because the city is worth a visit! You can discover the belfry of the Town Hall, the City of Lace...
