Biking and hiking tips

Bikers, get in gear for the approximately 35.000 kilometres of Dutch cycling tracks and discover our castle routes and nature trails or climb the highest Dutch mountain available.

Hikers, put on your walking shoes and explore the 10.000 kilometres of walking routes that criss-cross the Netherlands. Hike along one of the many Long-distance Hiking Trails (LAW) or shorter routes like, for example, the Clog Trails (Klompenpaden) or County Trails (Streekpaden).

Where to start or end your trip?
Our partners offer many great tips.

Bikers find routes via: Nederland Fietsland and the Fietsersbond. From the Netherlands to and in Belgium you can find your way via Fietsnet. Bikers can explore trails via: Wandelnet or mooisteroutes.nl.

Dear Friends and guest addresses,

Behind the scenes we are working on a new IT system. It will go live at the end of this month. Therefore, the website will be closed from Wednesday March 24 to Tuesday March 31. From April 1st you are more than welcome and almost all services will be available again. In the meantime, we would like to refer you to the booklet and of course the helpdesk is available for questions.

After April 1, there are a few perks that you will probably have to wait for. For example, the notice board (‘Prikbord’) for finding a cycling or walking buddy is not immediately back. The gift membership that you may want to give to a good friend is also temporarily unavailable. We try to fix this as soon as possible.

Warning: please save your favorite guest addresses and the information and contacts of the Prikbord’. We are doing our best, but we may not be able to put this information back on the site. If all goes well, you will not notice the new system and you will soon be able to use the service you are used to again.

Thanks for your patience and a warm greeting,

Team Vrienden op de Fiets
