Discover the best outdoor activities in the Veluwe and the surrounding area! Get on a bike and explore the most exciting MTB routes, become one with nature and take an invigorating walk through the woods. These are a few of the must-do activities!
Walking in the woods
De Werelt hotel in Lunteren is located right in the middle of the Veluwe's extensive woodlands. There are many miles (kilometres) of walking paths with an occasional lookout tower or a wildlife observation post. If you go for a walk in the early morning or evening, chances are that a group of deer will cross the frorest path right before your eyes. If you enjoy a challenge when you are out for a walk, then you should try geocaching. Which walking route in the area will you choose? Just set off and enjoy the tranquillity of nature!
