Achterhoek Solitude

The Achterhoek is one of the most rural areas in the Netherlands. It’s name literally translates to ‘back corner’, which should give you an idea of the area. It mostly consists of farmlands, open fields and small villages, and at some points you’ll get the feeling you’re half a century back in time. It’s also one of the best places to ride a bike, if you’re into a bit of adventure. The roads aren’t always nicely paved but sometimes it’s just old bricks or even cobbles, and there’s more than enough gravel there too. LEMAR ambassador Merlijn often goes out to this area to enjoy the solitude and empty roads.
