Board your Crystal motor coach for a relaxing ride to the rustic Dutch village of Yerseke, the first stop on your Zeeland Delta adventure.

Yerseke is a fishing village that is known for its aquaculture. Every year, visitors flock to its harbors for a taste from its oyster pits and the annual celebration of the late summer mussel harvest. Here, you will get a true feel for the lifestyle as you visit an oyster and mussel farm where you will relish a tasting of some of its prime seafood crops. 

Next, sit back, relax and enjoy a panoramic drive that will take you through the Delta Works.  Along with the Zuiderzee Works, this engineering marvel of dams and storm surge barriers was declared one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Given that more than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level, these arduous projects were completed to keep the region safe from natural flooding. Learn the importance of and appreciate the sheer size and virtuosity of these vital technologies. 

Your final stop along the Zeeland Delta will be the alluring sleepy town of Veere. Spend some time getting acquainted with this artistic village and its quaint marinas before boarding your motor coach for a relaxing transfer back to Antwerp where your river yacht is docked on the Scheldt, awaiting your return.
