The best feeling inside starts outside. Discover the Veluwe feeling !

De IJsvogel is a comfortable holiday in nature.
Where you recharge and relax by discovering.
We know what you need on holiday.
We think ahead, surprise you and are there for you where we can. But for us that is only a precondition for a pleasant stay.

We distinguish ourselves in making the connection between you and the Veluwe.
We don't think that's in large swimming pools, play havens and quick entertainment,
but rather in small things. What you really need attention for. Go silent for a moment. Nature, the sounds around you. Come to yourself. Discover color, scents and shapes. But also authentic, pure products and services.
We make those connections and let you enjoy them to the full.

Feeling at home at our park where you can see the environment reflected in the park.
Literally and figuratively. In taste, smell, experience and atmosphere.
Immerse yourself in the Veluwe and you will relax because of the effort you have to put in.

Happy people who can discover something new here every year.
Who like to return to the core, to the purity of the Veluwe feeling. That's what we're going for. With passion.

The best for the indoor person starts outside. With us on the Veluwe.
