Cycling around Stroe

Great views over the largest drift sand area in Western Europe with extensive forest areas and moors

Slider

Stroe

Stroe is surrounded by nature reserves with beautifully colored moors, active sand drifts, primeval forests and unique views. The freely accessible landscape has a number of special reputations: for example the presence of the largest active sand drift in Western Europe or the 'dancing trees' in one of the oldest and most beautiful forests in the Netherlands or the bizar shaped Scots pines on the heathlands, which are often more than a century old. But also in terms of cultural history, there is plenty to see in the area with historic farms and country houses, old burial mounds and the former radio station Radio Kootwijk.
