The green surroundings are very popular among hikers and cyclists. This is not without reason, of course. Staatsbosbeheer and Natuurmonumenten ensure that the environment - with love for nature - is arranged. Let yourself be surprised! When you walk from the holiday park, you can actually start walking right away. Prefer to walk an organized route? Ask at the reception desk for the possibilities. A popular route in the area is 'de acht van Amen'. Here you cross forest and meadow and the village of Amen is the start and end of the route. Ideal if you want to enjoy a snack and a drink after your walk.
If you like to cycle, you've come to the right place. Don't have your own bike? No problem at all. You can rent one at the campsite. You will find miles of bike paths in the area that cross beautiful nature reserves. Whether you go for a fast ride with long distances or rather rough through the woods: it's all possible. Fun tip: experience the Drents kwartiertje! A tour on a solex, in traditional clothing, through the beautiful surroundings.
In the special landscape you will find brook and Esvillages. Esdorpen are picturesque villages with beautiful churches and farms with surrounding fields. A typical landscape for Drenthe. Brinkdorpen are characterized by a pleasant square in the village center with lots of plants. Here you relax - after a walk - on a terrace for a cup of coffee or a beer. In the vicinity you will find many villages that are worth visiting: Ekehaar, Rolde, Balloo, Grolloo, Schoonloo and Anderen. Prefer to go to a city? Then go to Assen for a day.
Visit the bird viewing point in Diependal. Whether you are a fanatical birder or not: it is worthwhile. Through an underground passage you have access to the tower and you can look far over the fields. Climb the 14 meter high watchtower that runs from the former Kamp Westerbork. With views over the creek valley Holmers and the Halkenbroek area. A nice swim and picnic? Go to the Leberenplas for a day. On a food tour? Then visit the MelkDelicatesse, De Kruidenwei and Landwinkel Goense. Taste local products such as milk and fruit. Finally, it is very nice to see the Mill of Rolde turning in the center on the Brink on Saturday.
