This fourth stage takes you from Doorwerth to Wichmond. Most of the day is characterized by forests and heathland of De Hoge Veluwe and Veluwezoom National Parks. A break between all the natural beauty is a visit to Arnhem.The first kilometers take you along the very southern edge of the Duno estate,Origin and Pietersberg, all of which are part of De Hoge Veluwe. You cycle here on dusty dirt roads and cycle paths paved with concrete slabs. You can enjoy the beautiful green surroundings around you.Arnhem's old city center is a nice break from all that greenery. Here you can enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the rich cultural history and beautiful architecture. Are you not in the mood for this? Then go straight ahead at Willemsplein and continue straight out of the city.After about seventeen kilometers you reach the flanks of the Veluwezoom National Park. The next few kilometers you wind your way through untouched nature with conifers, deciduous trees, heaths and sand drifts. In addition to a winding road, the road also undulates quite a bit. The highest point is 100 meters above sea level.At the end of the route you can continue relatively quietly on flat cycle paths. When you have crossed the IJssel with the ferry between Brummen and Bronkhorst you are almost at the final destination. In one around Wichmond, the final vote, you will not find too many sleeping facilities. It is therefore advisable to book in advance.
