In spite of its small size, the Netherlands boasts an awful lot to see. Regardless of where you head in the country there are ample hiking opportunities to be had.
Veluwezoom National Park in Rheden, along the German border, offers plentiful hiking opportunities over ancient terminal push moraines as well as some views form the country’s highest point (110 meters above sea level, it’s not called a Low Country for nothing).
Similarly, Duinen van Texel National Park in Texel, at the very northern tip of the country, provides amazing seaside walks and some of the most impressive dunes in the country. As is the case will all Dutch national parks there are also plenty of opportunities to learn more about the landscape and, of course, rent a bicycle as well.
Oisterwijkse Bossen en Vennen in Oisterwijk; Landgoed Clingendael near the Hague; Klimduin in Schoorl; and De Blauwe Kamer in Wageningen are all excellent places to head out on a hike too if you get the chance.
Due to the Netherland’s mostly maritime climate, the country experiences mild and humid summers. Average temperatures during the summer range from 20 °C to 25 °C. These usually decrease a bit in the spring and autumn. Rain is not rare in the Netherlands and spread pretty evenly across the seasons.
The best way to get to the Netherlands is by flying in Amsterdam Airport (AMS). From here, the rest of the country can be quickly and easily reached by bus, rail or rental car.
