Tip #1: Playing, swimming, and chilling out at the Erkemederstrand recreation area

Playing, swimming, and chilling out at the beach. Dogs are more than welcome at this special dog beach; Erkemederstrand in Zeewolde. Enjoy the 1.5-kilometer-long dog beach with your four-legged friend. Your buddy can roam freely here, play with other dogs, or enjoy the sun with you. Dogs can happily splash around in the water or, you can take a refreshing dip together. Is your dog covered in sand? There are special dog showers to rinse off all the sand. After all this roaming around and playing in the water, you can enjoy a snack and a drink at the dog-friendly eatery, even your dog has its dog bar there. 

At Bungalow Park Het Verscholen Dorp you can enjoy a wonderful holiday with your dog.

Tip #2: Enjoy nature with your dog(s)

Do you like heathland and vast areas for a nice walk with your dog? Then opt for a walk across Ermelo's 'Groevenbeekse Heide' (heathland). Dogs are allowed to run off-leash here all year round.  Be sure to bring some snacks along, because it is a beautiful place for a picnic. Be careful with small dogs (such as dachshunds, for example), because there are many rabbits on the heath. Another off-leash area is the large 'Ermelosche Heide' (heathland), a vast area where you can take beautiful long-distance walks. Keep in mind that dogs must be on leash between 8 am and 4 pm because of the sheep herd. A beautiful area for endless walks, all less than 10 minutes away from Bungalow Park, Het Verscholen Dorp. Have fun!

Your dog is welcome on a leash at the Staverden estate. After the walk, sit down at Brasserie Staverden. In this cozy establishment, your dog is just as welcome as you are.

Tip #6: Adventurous dog (GPS) scavenger hunt along Hierdense Beek

The GPS scavenger hunt is a unique activity to undertake with your dog completely independently. Very convenient of course, because you can go when it suits you and can take whoever you want. The GPS tour is a fun scavenger hunt of 6 kilometers along the Hierdense Beek and the Beekhuizerzand on the Veluwe. During this tour, you and your dog can do puzzles, sniff, and other fun games while you search for the right way. This unique GPS scavenger hunt makes walking your dog even more fun!  Book the GPS scavenger hunt at the forest restaurant Het Draakje in Hierden.
