Nature in Salland: varied and authentic

For anyone who wants to see a wide variety of landscapes in a short period of time, Salland is the place to be. The beautiful floodplains and the unique river “the IJsel” act as the western border of Salland. There is a big diversity of flora and fauna on the floodplains and most areas are considered to be nature reserves. To the east lies the “Sallandse heuvelrug National Park”, these mountains will cast a completely different spell than the riverbanks of the IJsel. An area inbetween Holten and Nijverdal, with far stretching forests and moorlands. The small scale bocage, with its beautiful agricultural area, lies in the middle. You can’t help but feel right at home in a landscape like this.

Salland is a great place for kids too!

A day out in the countryside is always a big hit with the children! Watch the cows get milked, pay the pigs a visit in their hay or cuddle with the adorable animals at the petting zoo. Or would you rather have a more adventurous day? Visit the thrilling amusement park Hellendoorn! With over 30 attractions, shows and wild water rides! For the young adventurous children, Dreumesland is available. Would you rather enjoy the wild outdoors instead of an amusement park? Salland has a couple of fun indoor and outdoor playgrounds available for young and old to enjoy. When the weather is looking bleak, we recommend one of our personal favourites; playpark “Ballorig” in Wijhe. Of course, with good weather we recommend the playforest at the visitors centre at the Salland hill ridges, “the Sallandse Heuvelruggen”. There’s a wide variety of fun museums in Salland; like the toy museum in Deventer, the motor museum in Raalte and the tractor museum in Frieswijk. Discover Sallands history at the IJselvalley in Olst, or take a hike through the geological hikingtrail in Nijverdal.

In short, there’s plenty to discorver and enjoy in Salland.
