Walk in the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen (12km)

Who’s in for an adventurous winter walk in the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen (12 km, 3hrs)? These beautiful dunes provide drinking water for Amsterdam and are only a 30 minute drive west of the city.

The Waterleidingduinen have the largest population of fallow deer in The Netherlands and they are not shy so we’ll definitely see some of them. The dunes are also home to the cormorant, buzzard, fox, rabbit and many other animals.

No cars and bikes are allowed in the Waterleidingduinen and hikers may walk off-trail which is fun so we’ll do that here and there, including some sandy dune climbing 🙂

The planned hiking route (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CidneuRE53kkEcEKHalsemRghI8&usp=sharing) is a nice mix of wooded area’s, dunes and water canals and we’ll also pass some World War II bunkers in the sand.

We’ll start and finish at the (paid) parking place at the Oase entrance of the dunes in Vogelenzang. You’ll have to pay a small entrance fee for the dunes: €1,50 per person (not included).

It’s easiest to get to the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen by car. If you’re driving, and you have some empty seats, please let the others know so they might catch a ride with you.
