Around The Veluwe

The Veluwe: our country's green pride. And for good reason: this beautiful, large nature reserve has so much to offer. You can come face to face with various animals and the flora will surprise you every time.

What can you find on this route?

Breakfast included
Restaurant & Bar
Bicycle Rental
Sport Activities

You can find three of our amazing hostels in and around the Veluwe. We mix nature with a little bit of city and you can even end up in the Achterhoek. Eastern Netherlands: here we come!

Arnhem

Your green road trip is about to start!

Arnhem is one of the greenest cities in the Netherlands. And that makes sense: having the Veluwe as your neighbours. Take a walk through the wooded areas or go for a day of city exploring. You can chill in the hostel's cosy living room or have a drink at the bar. Who knows who you might bump into?

  • Day 1: Take a short bike ride to the city centre. And after the city exploration, relax in Park Sonsbeek  with a nice picnic.
  • Day 2: Today you will cycle to Apeldoorn. This tour will take you right through the Hoge Veluwe!

Apeldoorn

The surroundings are perfect for nature lovers!

Stayokay Apeldoorn is located in the middle of the forest. You will find various sports facilities on site and you can even choose to spend the night in a 'Wikkelhouse': a sustainable tiny house made of recyclable cardboard.

  • Day 3: Wake up in Apeldoorn! Have you been to the Apenheul Primate Park? This is a beautiful green park where more than half the monkeys roam free yet. This is your chance!
  • Day 4: Get up early. Today you will continue to the last hostel. You will take a break along the way in the beautiful Hanseatic city of Deventer.

Gorssel

This characteristic hunting lodge is breath-taking!

Norwegian styles mixed with Achterhoek perils. Come and read a book in our conservatory, have a drink at the bar or relax by the fireplace. You will have an incredible view of our beautiful back garden and in the direct surroundings, you will find the cosy Hanseatic cities of Deventer and Zutphen.

  • Day 5: Waking up in Stayokay Gorssel. The bike ride will take you to Zutphen. Tip: use the whisper boat to discover this town from the water.
  • Day 6: End of the road trip.
