You can determine your own walking route along the way by combining different points, or plan your route in advance via www.wandelnet.nl. You can also order/pick up a printed walking route map at various VVV (Tourist offices). Heading back in time: Oeverlanden Hollands Diep Stroll through a primeval Dutch river landscape (Strijensas) Enjoy the unspoilt natural surroundings, and stroll through the wild reedlands and overgrown willow forests with mysterious pools. Cross the grasslands and encounter Scottish Highlanders. Sit down on a bench and enjoy the view over the Hollandsdiep. You see, there’s no chance of getting bored on this trip! The unique freshwater tide creates a special type of vegetation, and attracts numerous bird species. Halfway through the walk there is a towboat, and in one section of this area you can also wander off the paths. That promises to be a wonderful adventure for all ages, so remember to take your boots along.
