Enjoy the Netherlands off-road
Discover what the Netherlands has to offer for adventure riders
This is what awaits you
The Dutch adventure ride
Our partner supports you on a three-day adventure ride on- and off-road through the countryside of the Netherlands. The trip spans the whole country from north to south, so you can experience the full range of off-roading the country has to offer. Small villages, prehistoric “hunebedden”, unfrequented byways, forest roads and, of course, sandy stretches to test your riding skills. See if you have what it takes to ride off-road the Dutch way.
Riding alone, together
Navigate on your own using a GPS route and follow the road less travelled. Riding solo does not mean riding alone. Find yourself in the good company of other Dutch adventure GS riders on the route. You will experience the freedom of riding at your own pace and choosing when to take breaks but never be far from helping each other or enjoying a lunch together.
Peace of mind assured
You can enjoy the thrills of adventure riding while our partner takes care of well-organised and convenient planning. The BMW Motorrad-certified off-road instructors and tour guides will take care of good route planning and provide you with comfortable services like hotels, dinners, sweepers and optional motorcycle rental.

Welcome to the BERRT three-day tour. Our partner advises that you plan to arrive between 4 pm and 6 pm. Check in, settle in and join the welcome dinner at 7 pm followed by the briefing.
Get ready for an early start. After breakfast, the first rider leaves at 8 am. You will enjoy the northern region with a 310 km ride. You will pass through De Hondsrug UNESCO Global Geopark with many prehistoric stone burial chambers, called Hunebedden. You will spend the night in a nice hotel in Rijssen.
The group will leave early for the longest ride of the tour with 365 km. You will head east. You will experience Twente’s beautiful countryside, and you will touch the border with Germany. Then you continue south to eventually pass the Rhine and Meuse Rivers. The last off-road stretch will bring you to a village called Deurne.
The final day brings a ride through Limburg and Brabant. By now you have ridden most of the terrains the country has to offer. You can bundle this experience and put it to good use on the sandy routes in Brabant. Enjoy heather fields, forest and good off-road riding. High on memories and a little low on energy, you will conclude a long weekend of adventure riding in Hilvarenbeek. After a quick bite with our partner, it’s time to say goodbye with the hope that you will see your new friends again soon.
