  • Excellent day out. The park is so large you can keep yourself to yourself and not really see many people! The bicycles are great. We did struggle on the newly gravelled cycle paths - it seemed like...

  • Every time we go back to Holland we visit the park at least once. A magnificent natural reserve with plenty of opportunities to see wildlife - mostly deer, but also wild boar, birds of prey and if you're lucky wolves. The cycling facilities are fantastic, with free white bikes which can be picked up and dropped off at any entrance or the visitors centre. The routes lead you through the various natural regions of the park. In summer time be on the lookout for the ice cream van which is run by a friendly Italian man. To get to the park from Ede you have to take two buses, which connect seamlessly.
  • A beautiful place to go cycling! Park your car just outside one of the park entrances for €4 then grab one of the free white bicycles and off you go! It's a large national park so having access to bikes meant we got to see much more of it in the time we had and it has a great cycle path network - exactly what you'd expect in the Netherlands! Even though much of it looked dry and barren due to the recent long stretches of hot weather, it was still a beautiful place to be.
