This route starts at De Sultan in Vlagtwedde, in the east of the province of Groningen. Here lies the Westerwolde region, a former glory. You cycle through a cozy esdorp landscape with beautiful old towns and of course the beautiful fortified village of Bourtange. You also cycle through Sellingen, a beautiful medieval esdorp. The eye-catcher is the village church from 1300. A little further you pass Ter Borg, an authentic Groningen hamlet that has managed to retain its original identity. The backbone of Westerwolde is the Ruiten Aa, a stream that has regained its original meanders. You cycle a long way through this lovely stream valley, one of the most beautiful in the Netherlands. You will also pass through the forests of Ter Borg. The tuft of heather is grazed by sheep and Scottish Highlanders.
