The Loonse and Drunense Dunes
Part of this route takes you through National Park De Loonse en Drunense Duinen. This nature reserve is special, because the drifting sand can actually drift freely around here. You won't find that anywhere in Europe on such a large scale. In addition to sand, the Loonse and Drunense Duinen consist of forests with conifers, streams, swamps and here and there a characteristic farm. A wonderfully quiet area to cycle through. From Natuurpoort Van Loon you can follow various cycling routes, such as route 114724. So feel free to come back again to try out a new route in this beautiful area.
