Tips for green trips!

Climbing as high as the trees

Stroll over a rope bridge, swing on a rope, and let the zip line take you across! Whatever you're doing, one thing is certain: The climbing forest of Brabantse Wal will make sure you are sky-high as you clamber around.

Stroll around while riding a donkey

We all know the game pin the tail on the donkey, but did you know that you can go trekking on a real donkey at the mini-campsite De Vetweide in Almen, about 10 kilometres’ cycle ride from Gorssel?

Race around in the style of the 60's

A great way of exploring the Kromme Rijn region is by Solex bicycle. Dress up in sixties-style long, leather coat and a cap and off you go, puttering past Dutch Waterline forts, lovely country estates, castles and orchards galore.
