Endless Hill Panorama Route

It is the eleventh time that the Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park, together with Landschap Overijssel, Vereniging Natuurmonumenten (Society for the Preservation of Nature) and the Dutch Forest Management Agency, has organised an incredibly beautiful three-day walking route along the Sallandse Heuvelrug. After the success of previous years, another Eindeloze Heuvelentocht will delight visitors in the summer of 2020 during the Sallandse Heuvelrug experience event: de Paarse Loper (the Purple Carpet). De Paarse Loper takes place in August with a variety of activities, all centred around the flowering heathland. The Sallandse Rug National Park rolls out its carpet and welcomes visitors with open arms. You can take part in the Heuvelentocht at the end of August, keep an eye on our diary.

Panoramic views

Three days of rambling along remnants of the penultimate ice age, led by an experienced nature guide. The route will lead you from the Lemelerberg to the Hellendoornseberg via the Eelerberg, and ends at the foot of the Holterberg (each one a ‘berg’ - mountain - in the Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park). The route crosses paths with experts who work in the area; they will take you to the most magnificent spots to show you the infinite variety of flora and fauna in the hills. They will take you to places you wouldn’t normally expect to visit.
