In this article I highlight the 5 national parks in the middle of the Netherlands. As a lover of forests and wildlife, my personal favorites are among them. So, let’s go into it and let me know of you are going to add one or more Dutch National Parks to your Netherlands itinerary?
With its extensive hiking network and beautiful nature reserves, the Netherlands is ideally suited for a hiking holiday. You are also in the right place for beautiful day trips. I have made many hikes throughout the Netherlands and that is why I can show you the most beautiful areas and the best trails.
Flowers are an important export product of the Netherlands, especially the tulip. The tulip is also the flower that symbolizes ‘Holland’. Every year in the spring, large parts of the Netherlands are transformed into a colourful patchwork of flower fields. Many tourists come to this special phenomenon. There is a lot to do in this time of year: flower exhibitions, tulip routes, flower parades, etc.
From 2018 the Netherlands has a new bicycle and walking route. It is a long distance path that is 275 km long for hikers and 200 km for cyclists. It leads from the coast in the west to the German border in the east, along the northern border of the former Roman empire. Along the way you will pass through historic cities and along the path you will see watchtowers, archaeological finds and information boards
The Netherlands is the country of water: sea, rivers, streams and lakes, and that creates a lot opportunities for waterrecreation. Personally, I think kayaking is one of the best activities for a day out. It’s a great way to relax in nature or in the city and you literally see the world from a different perspective. There are many places in the Netherlands where you can rent kayaks. In this acticle I give a summary of the best places for kayaking, all with possibilities for kayakrental.
