Cycling around Diever


"A varied landscape with dense forests, impressive sand drifts, fairy-like fens, vast heathlands and swampy areas."

The landscape

Diever is located in a hedgerow landscape with groves, arable fields and meadows at the foot of the Drents-Friese Wold National Park. With more than 6,000 hectares of forests, moorland, fens, sand drifts and stream valleys, the National Park is one of the largest contiguous nature reserves in the Netherlands. For about five thousand years, humans have largely influenced the landscape on the border of Drenthe and Friesland. From Diever to Appelscha they felled, peated, planted, hayed, dug and kept sheep. Wind and water did the rest. However, the characteristic Drenthe village landscape around the National Park has been preserved almost untouched.
