Road trip with the camper: these are the most beautiful places in the Netherlands

The Netherlands has several national parks that are definitely worth a visit. What better way to road trip along these nature reserves than with an (electric) camper? This is an adventurous way to get out and about and experience Dutch nature from your own house on wheels. Enjoy camping and be close to nature, but still with the comfort of sleeping inside dry. Another advantage of going out with a road trip camper is that camper places where you stay for a short time are often much cheaper than places on campsites themselves.

With the camper on a road trip between the woods and on the heath

Drenthe is the least populated province of the Netherlands. Partly because of this, there is a lot of countryside and the province has been able to retain its rural character. The Dwingelderveld National Park is located in Drenthe. This is an ideal place for a stopover with a road trip camper thanks to the many (small) campsites that can be found here, surrounded by nature. As you can see in the picture, this is really fun! You can walk here from your campervan in the woods and over the heath landscape. Along the way you can rest at one of the tea houses and restaurants that are hidden between the woods. For example, go and taste special beers from the wide range of De Bospub .

Another park that is definitely worth a visit if you like heath and forest is the Sallandse Heuvelrug. There are several (nature) campsites around the nature reserve, where you can spend the night in an adventurous and wooded way with the road trip camper. In this area you get close to nature and you can immerse yourself in the sounds that come with the outdoors. In addition, there are beautiful views that you can discover while taking one of the many hiking trails.

Tour along the coast and between the dunes

Are you someone who can really enjoy the salty wind through your hair while you are among the dune landscapes? The Oranjezon nature reserve in Zeeland offers you encounters with wildlife as well as sand between your toes on the nearby beach. You can also visit campsites in the area during your road trip with a camper. Leave your mobile home for a while and observe the wild horses, herons, deer and roe deer that have made their home here. Do you dare to take a dip in the sea, or would you rather have a picnic on the beach? You can do whatever you want with the campsites within walking distance of the beach!

Another National Park located on the beach is Zuid-Kennemerland, next to Haarlem. If you’re lucky, you might spot the European bison here! Do you want to do something in a different kind of ecosystem in addition to getting a breath of fresh air on the coast of the North Sea? You can then roll up your sleeves and help with the Landje van De Boer , where the principles of natural gardening are pursued. Natural cycles and low-waste are put into practice as much as possible. Who knows, you might find the ingredients for your dinner in this ecological picking and testing garden, which you can prepare in your own road trip camper!
