After a cup of coffee at B&B En Fiets- En Wandelcafé Peelvennen you get on your bike. The front garden of the farm borders the De Groote Peel National Park: 4000 hectares of ancient high moor swamp that is still as rugged as it used to be. Many thousands of hectares of the area have now been cleared for agricultural land and peat extraction, but what remains of the nature reserve is now called De Groote Peel. Get off at Buitencentrum De Pelen along the way to learn everything about the special nature. The black-necked grebe, nightjar and bittern are just a few of the hundreds of bird species you will find there. You will also find typical high moor plants such as sphagnum moss, sundew and lavender heather. And then there are the rare butterflies and dragonflies!
