You can take a varied trip between Exloo and Schoonoord. You drive through a pleasantly quiet forest, through a characteristic peat colony and through old esdorpen. Drenthe in a nutshell.
There are often beautiful old buildings along your route. You see Saxon farms and monumental churches, such as in Schoonoord. The choir of the Margaretha Church in Odoorn dates from the twelfth century. This choir is a rarity for another reason: up to about four meters the floor consists of granite boulders. Just past Exloo you drive a bit through Boswachterij Odoorn. Here you see the Pool Heights: a thirteen meter high hill with a watchtower on it.
At the Odoornerweg you can turn right to hunebed D34. Turn left and you'll see Eppiesbargie, an ancient burial mound. On the Dalakkersweg you pass dolmen D31. Just before Eeserveen you can make a nice stop at Keramiektuinen Galerie Harwi. On the terrace you can enjoy a coffee with something delicious in peace. In Odoornerveen you can see the peat history clearly: the rectangular plots are perpendicular to the canal that runs through this ribbon village.
