Larserbos

The Larserbos is varied and rich in birdlife and is crossed by several hiking and cycling trails.

Where the village of Larsen was planned in the original development plan of the province (1959), the Larserbos is now located. This varied forest has many recreational opportunities, including (approx. 300 hectares) three beaches, sunbathing and playing fields and walking and cycling paths. The area also has two camping areas.

The forest borders the Larservaart: an important ecological corridor of Flevoland. Variation is the key word in the Larserbos. Variation in planting as well as in animal species. Two walks with a length of 7 and 5 kilometers respectively take the hiker to the most beautiful places in the forest. He is meanwhile accompanied by the singing of great tits, blue tits, jays, golden orioles, song thrushes and blackbirds. You can relax along the way on one of the beaches or the many benches.

The Larserbos is becoming more and more beautiful, an attractive backdrop for a relaxing walk. The gradually imposing trees and mature shrubs emphasize the small-scale alternation of open and closed forest. The forest borders the Larservaart, the Larservaart Strip and the Heggen landscape and the Wildwallen. As a result, the forest has, as it were, spurs to the Nature Park, the Knarbos and the Harderbos. This may be one of the reasons why the bird population of the Larserbos is so species-rich: about 45 bird species breed in numbers that are high compared to renowned forests such as the Horsterwold.
The numerous turtle doves indicate a well-developed shrub layer. There are also relatively many special species, such as the lesser spotted woodpecker and the gray flycatcher. This means that the forest is developing into a more natural forest with a lot of dead wood.
