Your hotel is situated in a unique part of the Netherlands: the centre of The Veluwe. Today, you have plenty of time to take in the beautiful surroundings. The welcoming village of Garderen is certainly worth a visit.
Today, you get as much as 46 km of pure natural beauty. You will get to see the heathland at Houtdorperveld, the woods around Staverden country estate, the forest at Hoog Soerense Bossen and more heaths at Asselse Heide. Whats more, villages like Elspeet, Uddel and leafy Nieuw Millegen are a pleasure to behold. After 46 km cycling it is time to rest in cosy hotel.
The last 40 km of your cycling holiday take you past the prettiest spots in Western Veluwe. You will cycle through beautiful natural areas on Boeschoten Country Estate and around Voorthuizen and Appelse Heide. The route will also guide you via Steenenkamer to Putten and to one of the Netherlands oldest forests: Sprielder Bos, known as "the forest of dancing trees because the trees appear to dance in the mist! Also dont miss haunted Solse Gat valley, where - legend has it - a convent sank into the mud after nuns allied with the witches in the Middle Ages. Then cycle back to Garderen.
You have cycled the Veluwe Star Route. Today your bike holiday drawas to a close, but not until you have indulged in a big hearty breakfast for the last time. After breakfast, it is time to go home.

We had a lovely cycling holiday, thank you! All your arrangements were perfect. Our only suggestions would be:
The weather was glorious and the countryside beautiful.
...This was the third time we have used Dutch Bike Tours in a row and each time I have been well impressed by the whole package and that is why we come each year. I do hope to return again next year. The choice of Hotels are superb and the routes very good...
...We had a great trip thank you.
The hotel was perfect - excellent room and lovely food - and the staff were helpful and friendly. The bikes were fine and the maps were easy to follow. We quickly realised we could extend our cycling journey if we wished too.
It would have been better to have panniers on the bikes - this is the only negative.
Certainly good value for money...
