Hiking and biking

Enjoy the peace and space…

The area around Camping Meerwijck is beautiful for hiking and biking. One moment you ride with the bike through the vast meadows and polder and the “big” city of Groningen, the other, by the shade forests and small tourist villages. The nature of Groningen and Drenthe is so varied that by foot and cycling is the perfect way to enjoy it.
