National Park Sallandse Heuvelrug and Wierdense Veld

"Cycling in a rolling landscape with beautiful views over forests and heath, living raised moors, grasslands, farmland and a meandering river."



Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park is a surprising and unique place in the Netherlands. Here you will find one of the largest contiguous dry heath areas in northwestern Europe. This landscape was once formed by the land ice that mercilessly pushed everything it encountered like a gigantic bulldozer. This eventually resulted in a huge moraine with erratic height differences and deep and steep valleys. East of the hill ridge a completely different scene. Here the landscape is shaped by the dynamics of an old-fashioned winding river and a mystical raised bog landscape. The swampy Wierdense Veld is one of the few remaining places in the Netherlands where living raised bog still occurs.
