Drenthe has a large variety of special natural areas. Wide forests and heaths with lovely little wetlands, beautiful stream valleys and attractive small-scale cultural landscapes are surrounding villages and several country estates. Because of its well maintained cycle paths through the woods and heath land, Drenthe is known as the cycling province of The Netherlands. On the bike it feels like you are far away from the inhabited world and still you can experience the nearby nature.
