Hellendoorn, Summer 2008

August 21st, 2008

This year we spent our summer vacation in Hellendoorn, at a place called Camping Eelerberg — a very nice camp site, where we rented a log cabin for two weeks. The site is run by a friendly couple, who not only take care of the administration and reception, but also the facilities, the swimming pool, the snack corner, and the restaurant, where they cook delicious meals from fresh biological products, some of which even home-grown on the camp site itself.

Hellendoorn is right on the side of the Sallandse heuvelrug (Salland hills), which offers beautiful nature, and several colour marked walking tracks. On the far north side of it, (about 40 minutes cycling from the camp site), there are the Lemelerberg and Archemerberg, two beautiful “mountains” (respectively 48 and 76.5 meters above sea level) covered in heather and pine and juniper trees. For some reason, Google maps shows the Archemerberg as Lemelerberg, and simply ignores the Lemelerberg itself.

Naturally, I took lots of pictures during these two weeks, and have uploaded a selection of them for you to see, in the photography section of the site. Hope you like them 🙂

    I honestly dont think you can beat a log cabin holiday. It looks superb where you went and the log cabin parks have the extra facilities as you mentioned which apply the finishing touch to the break and make it extra special. I would like to visit the area you went to it looks perfect for site seeing and cycling.
