BAT WALK, SOUNDS OF THE NIGHT (A’DAMSE BOS)

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. The bats use the Amsterdamse Bos as their home and hunting grounds and only after dusk they come out to play and feed on flying insects.

CANOE EXPEDITION GREBBELINIE 16KM

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.

Canoe tour whaling area Jisperveld (near A’dam)

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.

FALLOW DEER RUTTING EXCURSION (WATERLEIDINGDUINEN)

As autumn rolls in, you can hear mysterious roars coming from the dunes and out of the forest.. The deer rutting season has started. The stags (male deer) leave their herds  and head off alone in search of fertile females. Once found, they compete for their attention by roaring. Their sound is like a cross between a lion’s roar and a bull’s bellow. The stags are impressive to watch. Testosterone is coursing through their bodies which often leads to fierce and spectacular mating battles. The fight starts vocally, and if this is not enough to ward off a competitor, it can lead to quite impressive fights between the stags.
