The land of forests, moors and sand drifts

From flowering orchards in the Betuwe to the river landscape of the Land of Maas and Waal, nature is never far away in Gelderland. National Park De Hoge Veluwe is perhaps the most beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands. Discover forests, heaths and sand drifts during a varied walking or cycling trip. With a bit of luck, you might even spot the Dutch big five here! Also in National Park Veluwezoom, the oldest National Park in the Netherlands, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. With its many different hiking trails, this nature reserve east of Arnhem is a walhalla for hiking enthusiasts.
