Cyling through the prettiest forests of northern Netherlands

A real experience is this 5-day cycling holiday from hotel to hotel. The cycling tour does not only bring you to the most beautiful hotels, but also across the prettiest forests and villages Friesland, Flevoland, Overijssel and Drenthe have to offer. You are able to enjoy the tranquility and space, the birds and the nature the provinces have to offer whilst Friesland Holland arranges the rest. Your luggage will be transported by the tourism company from hotel to hotel, but Friesland Holland also arranges the rest; overnight stays, breakfast and dinners and even bicycles if you would like to rent these.

The so called Kuinrebos is located at the border of Friesland and Overijssel and is around 1.200 hectare. This nature area is open all year round and has special walking, riding and cyclingroutes. Do you want to leave your bicycle for a while and do you love birds, this is the place for you. The forest has multiple birdwatching sites in order to witness in winter the mergansers, smew and wigeon.

National Park the Weerribben-Wieden is located in Overijssel and is a oasis of tranquility. The park where land and water alternate is the home of many flora and fauna. Many people have been in this beautiful park already and recommend it as a must see.

Drents-Friese Wold
6000 hectare forest, heaths, shifting sands and meadows, that is the Drents-Friese Wold. This National Park which you will visit on your second cycling day is located before Appelscha and spreads itself between Friesland and Drenthe, which causes the name Drents-Friese Wold. If you would like more information about this park during your cycling tour you are able to visit the visitor centre of the park which has plenty of information.
