Hiking and cycling

Put on your walking boots or rent a bicycle and explore the surroundings. Nature lovers will adore the Harderbos, the rough marshland of Harderbroek or the
bird-rich Kievitslanden. Or you can explore the ancient woodland on the Veluwe. Enjoy the many sides of the landscape with the whole family!

Explore the surroundings together. You can walk straight into nature from your accommodation. Cycling round the Veluwemeer to picturesque Elburg to relax on a terrace. Hiking through the polder landscape over dikes and past meadowland. Exploring and enjoying Flevoland's nature together. 

Feel free to drop by at the park reception for tourist information or tips for hiking or cycling!


There are some lovely hikes to be made in the Netherland's youngest province. Take time to enjoy the natural beauty around you. Hike through Harderbos nature area and follow one of the hiking trails.

If you'd rather explore the countryside by bike, there are various cycling routes. Take a trip on the Oostvaardersplassen and discover the space, water 
and beautiful nature. This route, which is more than 35 kilometres, takes you past rough marshes, you might even spot a Red Deer! Or cycle past the hotspots in the film 'De Nieuwe Wildernis'. The film's field director and cameraman is your guide.
