For the nature lovers we recommend the “Zuiderheide” trail. This trail takes you 4.6 miles through the wonderful moorland. The trail takes you past old burials hills from the first people that lived here 5000 years ago. The moorland are now inhabited by herds of cows, deer and a various kinds of birds. But most remarkable are the sand drifts, also known as the white mountains, after which our hotel is named. These sand drifts that stand like large dunes in the middle of the landscape were once bigger but they are still impressive.

North of the centre of Hilversum the longest nature bridge of the Netherlands can be found. In the middle of the Goois Nature reserve. Definitely worth it!
