Hiking in south west Drenthe

The south west of Drenthe is rich in nature. Fields of green and cornflowers, pasture with cattle, meandering brooks, wooded banks and forests and lest we forget a variety of estates open to hikers. Several predetermined routes offer to show you around these grounds. You have plenty of space, even during a time of social distancing.

The surrounding countryside of Berghuizen invites you to stroll. From our B&B you can easily reach the Wandelommetje Berghuizen. This route over dirt rails has recently been set out by residents of this small village, for which we are very grateful. At the end of our driveway turn right and proceed to follow the signs. The German Shepherd at the farm on the edge of our village might scare you. She is vigilant, but will always stay within her grounds, so you can walk past her without worry. Halfway through the walk you can opt to take a breather at teahouse Het groene geschenk (the Green Gift).

The route consists of two parts with green or red signs (4, 6 and 9 kilometers) that you can combine. The route is signed well, but you can also view it on Google Maps by clicking the photo or downloading the GPX.

Echtenerveld

If you prefer to hike a bit longer, then we recommend Echtenerveld. It is a more varied area and more peaceful than the more well known Dwingelderveld. A variety of routes start from the parking lot at the Ruinerweg.
We have personally set out another route that leads around the Gijsselterkoelen, a collection of ponds in a heather. Download the pdf with the description or the GPX below.

One kilometer south of Berghuizen the Hiking Network De Wolden-Oost starts, offering over 500 kilometers of varied hiking trails that offer peace and quiet even during the busier seasons. We have a useful map with marked-out nodes for you at our home.

¬†Aside from that the Golden Triangle of National Parks in which we live offers many acres of nature reserves where you can hike and cycle to your heart’s content. We offer several maps that you can use.
