This walk will take us deep into the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen in search of the deer and foxes that call the Waterleidingduinen their home. The deer and foxes that live here are special, they have lost their natural shyness and are very relaxed around humans. This makes them easier to spot and get close to. Seeing these incredible creatures in their beautiful habitat is an experience that will appeal to nature and wildlife lovers alike.
Remember that the foxes are wild animals and it’s hard to make a 100% guarantee that we see them. The dunes contain the largest population of fallow deer in The Netherlands, so we’ll most definitely see them. In general there is plenty to see and enjoy in the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen. The dunes are home to the cormorant, buzzard, rabbit and many other animals. Some rarely seen ducks from the northern countries love to spend their winter here.
We don’t have to stay on the footpath in this nature reserve, which gives our walk that little extra wilderness feeling.
