Veluwe - star tour from one hotel

Netherlands - centre based tour

Nature, art and pleasure: diversity in the Veluwe

Forests, heathland and dunes as well as over 100 lakes characterise the Veluwe in the Dutch Gelderland. The charming region with its diverse landscapes includes the Hoge Veluwe National Park, which is populated by an abundance of wildlife. And so this rally in the region is a very good idea for all nature lovers. But not only for them. Those who love historic towns and buildings will look forward to places like Harderwijk and Amersfoort, as well as Het Loo Castle near Apeldoorn. 

The best way to explore this vast area is on a bicycle. There are also beautiful destinations to discover outside the national park. Numerous famous museums and sights, atmospheric small towns with many cafés and restaurants - the Dutch province of Gelderland has a lot to offer for nature fans and active holidaymakers. 

Enjoy a relaxing day on beautiful beaches or take a boat trip. Art lovers can visit one of the largest Van Gogh collections in the world in the Veluwe and gourmets can enjoy a range of Dutch specialities. Experience one of the most diverse regions in the Netherlands.

The base for your daily cycling tours is the hotel. Every morning you can choose a tour from our tour book that most suits what you feel like doing that day! And if you feel like doing nothing - well that's fine too! Read a book, enjoy shopping - it's great when you can do what you like.

You can determine your tour yourself. These star tours are an interesting alternative for families with small children. The children don't have to get used to new surroundings every day.

Itinerary

Individual arrival in Garderen. You will receive your bike (if booked) and important information for your cycling trip.

Today you reach the Hanseatic town of Harderwijk, which is situated on the coast of Lake Veluwe with its many historic buildings. If you feel like a swim, take advantage of the beautiful beach for a relaxing stay. The way back takes you through the Ermelo Heath with its wide and charming landscape.

You cycle through the forest and heath of the western Veluwe to the more open, urban landscape near Amersfoort. Amersfoort has a well-preserved medieval town centre, numerous historic buildings and monuments, canals and cosy restaurants and cafés. Passing the Stoutenburg Castle, your way leads back to the hotel. From Amersfoort you can take the train.

Nature and art form a delightful mix in the Hoge Veluwe National Park. The forests, moorland lakes and heathland are home to many protected animals and plants. The visitor centre reveals a lot about the history, culture and nature of the park. A place of art is the Kröller-Müller Museum, which has, among other things, the second largest Van Gogh collection in the world and a very beautiful sculpture garden.

Today you can first admire the gardens of Het Loo Castle, which are among the most beautiful gardens in Europe. Afterwards you will reach Apeldoorn. The city offers you a lively mix of historical buildings such as the Grote Kerk, art sites such as the museum of modern art called CODA, restaurants, shops and nature areas such as the Apenheul Zoo, which is home to many monkeys.

Individual return journey to your home town or start of your extended stay in Garderen.

Tour character

Easy to moderately difficult. The route runs mostly on farm tracks as well as small roads and cycle paths. On the way, you will occasionally come across slightly hilly, unpaved forest paths, occasionally also sandy paths. You will cover a large part of the route using the excellent junction system.
