This cycle route takes you through three areas of Natuurmonumenten: the Dwingelderveld, the Holtingerveld and the DrentsFriese Wold. Lovely cycling areas with lots of heathland, woods and fens. For this reason alone, this cycling route is worthwhile. For butterfly lovers, this route has something extra: special butterfly species flutter around in all sorts of colours. Didn't see anything? Then you can always see butterflies in the butterfly paradise of Havelte.
