Sporty outdoors types who want to get out there, can get their fill in Veenhuizen. A good bike, sturdy walking shoes – you don’t need much more than that. A variety of signposted cycling and walking routes run through the grassland, peat moor and forest. Places where you might imagine yourself miles from the inhabited world, but a cheerful patio or a warm café is easy to find after your outing.
For those who like more vigorous activity, there are plenty of opportunities in the immediate surroundings for great tours by horse, mountain bike or canoe.
Route booklets for the signposted routes in and around Veenhuizen can be obtained at the Tourist Info Point.
