Set out to discover the northern tip of Drenthe by bike, close to the border with Groningen. You have beautiful views, old villages with Saxon farms and interesting nature reserves.

The Onlanden
Between Paterswolde and Peize you cycle through the Onlanden: a basin between the higher sandy soils of Drenthe and Groningen clay soils. You will find low and wet soils, flowery grasslands, ditches and small forests. In this area along the Eelderdiep you will see many meadow birds. Moreover, you have beautiful views along two adjacent lakes. The Hoornse Meer was created in the 1970s by sand extraction, the Paterswoldsemeer was already excavated in the sixteenth century for peat.

Old stream valleys
Above Esdorp Norg you drive through quiet forests. You also cycle through several stream valleys, such as the relief-rich stream valley of the Runsloot north of the esdorpje Vries. With its many hedgerows and coppice bushes, this still intact stream valley landscape forms a beautiful old Drenthe decor. Just like the villages of Peest, one of the oldest in Drenthe, and Paterswolde, which enjoys a protected landscape. Back in Eelde, enjoy a tasty snack at Cafe Theater G & A Boelens!
