Cycle routes around the Veluwe

De Veluwe: one of the most beautiful regions of the Netherlands. And what's a better way to explore the area than on two wheels?

We all have our daily routes to follow. But if you're looking for some inspiration, then have already done the legwork for you.

Here are a few fun routes around the Veluwe to follow. Not only is there plenty of nature to see, but our hostels in Apeldoorn & Arnhem are great jumping-off points. So yeah, we might be a bit partial. 😉
