The Veluwe

The Veluwe is a forest-rich ridge of hills in the Gelderland area. It includes many landscapes, such as heathlands, small lakes, woodland and sand drifts and it is the largest push moraine complex in the country. The Veluwe was established around 200,000 years ago, during the Pleistocene epoch; during this time, glaciers that were around 200 meters thick, pushed sand deposits in the Maas Delta and the Rhine, which created the hills that form the Veluwe.

Most visitors go to the Veluwe for its scenic beauty, to relax or to spot the Dutch ‘’Big Five’’: foxes, roe deer, red deer, badgers and wild boar. Other animals that can be spotted are Highland cattle, birds, beavers, other mammals, insects, and reptiles.

In this region, there are many other recreational options as well. There are multiple campsites, bungalows, museums, sports complexes, Olympic Games training facilities, parks, and the royal palace Het Loo. And apart from its scenic beauty, the city is also known for its Hanseatic Towns, which include Harderwijk, Elburg, and Hattem. In addition, with over 100 pools and lakes, including lakes that border the Veluwe National Park, there is plenty of opportunities and possibilities for water sports.

The region is a place of relaxation, scenic beauty, and nature. The forests and hills allow for beautiful pictures, great tours and plenty of sportive activities. Apart from nature, there are many museums, palaces, and residences you can visit. A trip to the Veluwe would definitely be a unique experience for you and your colleagues.
