Cycle route: A day in the Veluwe
Nunspeet, Elspeet, Hoog Soeren, Vierhouten
The Veluwe was originally a forest area. Nothing new, you might say, but deforestation in the Middle Ages created large sand drifts and sand dunes. This caused people to move away from the Veluwe and gave nature free rein.
The 'ancient forests' that you encounter on the way only came into being at the end of the 19th century, when people decided to plant trees for timber production. This made the region attractive again for living and recreation.
