After entering the Netherlands, the Rhine splits into several branches before making its way towards the North Sea through the wide delta it shares with the Meuse and Scheldt rivers. The main river - the Waal - is one of the busiest waterways in the whole of Europe. Also worth highlighting is the River Linge which snakes its way through the orchards of the Betuwe region. Riding alongside the rivers, cyclists can take in and enjoy the countryside, visit little harbour towns or the city of Rotterdam and its important sea port. There is also a 100 km River Waal variant of the route from Millingen through Nijmegen to Vuren.
