Cycling in the Netherlands
National Bike Routes (Landelijke Fietsroutes)
National Bike Routes (Landelijke Fietsroutes) are designed for anyone interested in cycling through the Netherlands for more than one day and seeing all beautiful scenery the country has to offer. The network of National Bike Routes (Landelijke Fietsroutes/LF routes) has a total length of 4,500 kilometers. All routes include signs in both directions and can be combined to create a custom holiday trail. For more information and to learn about the Dutch cycling culture, please visit www.hollandcyclingroutes.com.
You will now find junction networks for cyclists that cover almost all of the Netherlands. Het Groene Boekje does not specify these details for all the site information. The websites below contain the most up-to-date information. In addition, the following websites include maps showing the Dutch bike junction networks: www.fietswebwinkel.nl and www.knooppuntkaarten.nl.

Rondje Achterhoek (‘Achterhoek Tour’)
In the Eastern part of the country, you can bike along the Natural Campsites on the Rondje Achterhoek (Achterhoek Tour). The site descriptions include a list of participating campsites.

Wandelzoekpagina (Search page for walking routes)
We work in partnership with Wandelzoekpagina (a search page for walking routes) to inform you about hiking trails in the surroundings of the Natural Campsites. The left-hand menu on each site’s web page includes a list of these routes. The Wandelzoekpagina page provides information on walking and hiking, search options for walks throughout the Netherlands, walking maps, more than 2,500 day walks, city walks, GPS walks and multi-day walks. www.wandelzoekpagina.nl.
