WALK: EXPLORE THE HEATHLANDS OF EDE (16KM)

When the heather plants start blooming, large parts of the Netherlands turn into beautiful deep shades of purple. This brand new walk will take us through the forest and across the beautiful heathlands the “Ginkelse Heide”. Cows and sheep graze the fields to naturally maintain them. If we are lucky we might encounter the shepherd with his sheep. The views are stunning when the heather is blossoming.

• UNPLUG & EXPLORE
During this walk we “unplug & explore”. A small part of this 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.

• WHAT IS INCLUDED
Guided walk in Ede (guided by Karen)

• WHAT TO BRING
Rain jacket, camera, something to eat/ drink. We’ll have a lunch break in the middle (food is not included).
