Drenthe is one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the Netherlands. The many natural areas invite you to get out there and enjoy. Will you choose a hike in the moorland, peatland, sand or forest landscape? As well as 'ordinary' walks, you can do Nordic Walking, letterboxing, and there are varied marked GPS routes as well as Drenthe's 'knapsack routes'.
Walking with a GPS is very popular nowadays. The province of Drenthe is joining in this trend, naturally. In the Hunzevallei in particular, there are various GPS trails to follow. Various different GPS hiking and cycling routes also start from the Landal GreenParks Drenthe parks. Information is available at the reception at each of the parks.
A good way to explore Drenthe on foot is with the help of the 'Knapsack Routes'. Along the way, you will walk on historical paths that bring the old landscape of Drenthe to life. The Knapsack Routes can be purchased from all VVV tourist information offices in Drenthe and cost € 5.25 each. You can also order the routes online.
Add even more fun to a walk - with letterboxing! Letterboxing is a unique attraction. In the wider area around the Zuidlaardermeer, AA en Hunze, boxes containing a unique stamp have been hidden. The aim of the game is to find as many stamps as you can and add them to your own booklet. There are various clues to help you find the letterboxes. Booklets are available from various outlets, including the VVV tourist information offices.
