The Ski Resort
The Skidome Rucphen is home to a winter wonderland all-year round. There are no less than six restaurants in the in-house ski village alongside a ski service centre, sports doctor, ski rental shop and lots more besides.
The ski centre boasts a total of 30,000 m² to explore, offering blue, red and black runs as well as a newly constructed terrain park with rails, jumps and a big air bag jump. Beginners and anyone looking to hone their skills on the snow can draw on the expertise of instructors from the local ski school.
Although the ski centre is open 365 days a year, the summer opening hours can be somewhat shorter! A similar Skidome centre is located in Terneuzen.

One unique attraction here is the 18-hole indoor golf course “Glow Golf”. Equipped with fluorescent golf balls and clubs under black light, expect to meet life-sized polar bears, orcas, penguins and seals on this Antarctic-themed course.
The ice cart area is the place to go for some white-knuckle racing action, with 3,500 m² of pure speed, ice and adrenaline kicks.
