There are several unique nature reserves on the Veluwe. One such gem is the Kootwijkerzand. The route also takes you through the woods, the Gelderse Vallei and Hoog-Buurlo.

Landal Rabbit Hill is a nice place to stay on the Veluwe. From here you can drive straight into the woods. After a while you drive along the edge of the Houtdorperveld, between the trees you have beautiful views over the heath. In Garderen you can see some beautiful old buildings and De Hoop, a flour mill from 1852.

In the woods of Boeschoten you pass an authentic sheepfold, then you drive a bit through the Gelderse Vallei. Enjoy the wide landscape before cycling back into the woods. After a while you cross the Kootwijkerzand: an extensive sand drift that is partly covered with mosses and grasses. Hoog-Buurlo is a unique old settlement of two sheepfolds and two houses that are surrounded by stately beech avenues and fields with wild banks. An idyllic spot!
