Beautiful forest, great for cycling especially in autumn. Among the trees you can even find sand dunes and patches of marsh

This place is beautiful!! Great walk around on the short and informative path. Lots of scenic things to do and see. If you venture out more, be sure to follow the signs. It's easy to lose the markers a bit but you'll always manage to find your way. Cute cafe with good coffee at the main parking lot as well.

This is a lovely, uncrowded, relaxing place to get away from the crowds and enjoy nature. Good , flat walking paths in some areas though you are also allowed to roam as you please. There are some wooded areas but the terrain is mostly grassland. Various natural ponds can be found throughout the park so waterfowl can also be observed.... More

This National Park has several areas where dogs are allowed to run free and to play with other dogs. A big areal is located near the village of Appelscha. We have done the "Natte Neuzen" roundwalk. Furthermore is this a large area with a great difference in the type of fields: forest, sand dunes and lakes.

The natural forest is easily accessable by bicycle and makes a great family holiday location. For beginners, young and old, the flat smooth concrete cycle paths are safe and take you amongst the woods. There are a few cafe stops along the way and lots of natural views. We visit Diever each year for a great family time.

One of the last area's in the Netherlands where you can experience the typical Dutch peat land. With nearly extinct plants, lots of birds which are using all the small pools to rest and eat.

The park has a wonderful network of cycle paths through hills, woods and heath. We did an afternoon loop but could easily have spent days exploring.

We spent the day cycling through this national park on the bike paths. It was well sign-posted and a lovely way to spend the day.
