As dusk falls and armed with torches and a bat detector we are going on a bat hunt. While we search for these mysterious acrobats by sight, and listen for their clicks with the bat detector we’ll learn a lot about their habits.

Are you up for a challenge? This beautiful canoe trip takes us through the forest, through narrow waterways, past meadows with beautiful estates and along a historical dyke with old bunkers (part of the Grebbe Line). It is the perfect nature getaway. This amazing route is 16 kilometers long. It is a little challenging because we need to take the canoe out of the water a few times to pass the locks that were built in the past to control the water in this area. The route is truly stunning and definitely worth the challenge.
Did you know that Jisp near Amsterdam is an old whaling village? Five centuries ago, the Netherlands was the center of the world’s whaling industry. Jisp was one of the first villages that had its own boat (1642) to hunt whales in the Arctic Ocean. It all started when the Dutch began exploring the Arctic regions looking for a sea passage to Asia. They ran into whales near a group of unexplored islands. In those days the waterways still had an open connection with the Zuiderzee.
