Van der Valk Hotel ARA is located in a surprisingly natural environment which offers exquisite cycling opportunities. Enjoy the sight of the polders as you cycle on dikes along the various rivers in the area - an authentic Dutch experience!
Discover the area of Rotterdam and Dordrecht
Just across the river lies polder island De Hoeksche Waard, accessible directly from Hotel ARA by ferry. The way you explore this area is up to you. The polder island is spacious and offers panoramic views. Stretched farmlands, high tree lined dikes with distinctive dike buildings, and old creeks define the landscape. To enjoy the nature to the fullest, you discover De Hoeksche Waard by horse and cart, on foot or by bike. If you are an avid cyclist, hire a bicycle from Hotel ARA and go out to experience what the area has to offer!
