Walk: Unplug in the Kennemerduinen (10-15KM)
Come explore the Kennemer Dunes National Park, a precious natural area just 40 minutes away from Amsterdam. Wander through the vast forest and dune area. Be mesmerised by the idyllic Bird Lake and look out for deer, ‘wild’ horses and Scottish Highlanders. Wandering through the Kennemer Dunes almost feels like you’re in a foreign country.
During this walk we “unplug & explore”. We’ll partly walk in silence. It offers you the chance to connect with others who want to experience nature fully and deeply. By choosing to stay away from friendly chit-chat and explore what it’s like to walk in nature without speaking, we have a chance to engage our senses more fully and to truly connect with the natural world.
This beautiful hike takes us to the heart of the Kennemer Dunes National Park. We will explore the area stretching from Zandvoort to IJmuiden. We gather at the visitor centre in Overveen from where we start our hike. From here we wander through the dune landscape, hike the small trails in the forest and enjoy some beautiful ocean views. Halfway we will have a picnic overlooking the sand dunes.
