  • Cycling route 751727

Beautiful heaths, a flock of sheep with a shepherd: this is also the Veluwe. Discover the Elspeetse Heide with this route! Your route starts at Landgoedhotel Villa Vennendal on the edge of the Veluwe. Enjoy a cup of coffee here before you get on your bike. The Veluwe is more than forest: on the Elspeetse Heide you will soon have beautiful views of the heath plain from your bike. The former oak and birch forest disappeared due to logging, after which farmers let sheep graze on the felled part. Because the sheep kept things open, the heath could grow. Also nice to see during this cycling tour is Schaapskooi Elspeet, at node 89. The Elspeetse heide is one of the few heaths that are still maintained by grazing. The shepherd walks around with the sheep every day, maybe you will run into him!
