Meijendel Spring Walk (15km)
Spring is in the air! Experience nature reserve Meijendel come into bloom, a true gem situated near Scheveningen and The Hague. Discover this vast and varied landscape with its sand dunes, irregular lakes, pine forests, wonderful oak trees and its open access to the sea. Enjoy the splendor of the first fresh green leaves that brighten up all the trees and plants in this beautiful area.
This walk takes you through the largest interconnected dune area of South Holland. Via unpaved dune paths and winding forest tracks, we will make our way to the beach and walk back along the sea. Several viewpoints allow for breathtaking treetop views over this beautiful area. Due to its varied landscape, Meijendel boasts an exceptionally rich diversity of flora and fauna. Various types of trees and over 250 species of birds can be found here. Other wildlife includes rabbits, foxes, weasels and deer, as well as Galloway cows and Konik horses. The large variation in
landforms, vegetation and animal species makes Meijendel worth visiting in any season.
• UNPLUG AND EXPLORE
During this walk we “unplug and explore”. A small part of the walk will be 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.
