Hikes

Well, hikes might be a big word. I call my little walks a hike when they are over 10 km!


Another hike through the Kennemerduinen close to Haarlem. Starting in Santpoort Noord through the dunes to the beach, over the beach to Bloemendaal aan Zee, then through the dunes to Overveen. Nice walk if you are travelling by train. But please pick a quiet day if you prefer a quiet […]

The Vechtdal (River Vecht Valley) in Overijssel is a very popular destination for campers and bikers. It is a very diverse environment with excellent biking paths. However, for hikers looking for peace and quiet, and want to see things people on wheels can’t, this is not entirely the place…

Another two day hike. The first day over the Mookerheide and around the St. Jansberg to Groesbeek. Second day from Groesbeek over the Devil’s Mountain and through the Philosopher’s Valley to Nijmegen.

Three very different walks; high sandy grounds from Roermond to Brüggen through the moors of Meinweg, the lakes in the Schwalm valley around Brüggen and a walk back to the Netherlands along the Schwalm and over the lower sandy grounds of the Schwalm moors.

Just 30 minutes by train from Amsterdam you can make nice walks through the Kennemerduinen. Allthough next to Haarlem and Amsterdam, you won’t meet many people on your way. But you will see lot’s of woodpeckers and jays! Oh, and some ‘wild’ horses… This walk is between the NS stations […]

Dunes walk


In the south of the Netherlands the idyllic valley of the River Geul is one of the most fantastic places for a nice walk. See for yourself…

Pentecost in Valkenburg



The Ourika Valley is just half an hour drive from the city of Marrakech in Morocco. Although the travel guides say this valley is relatively unspoiled, this only counts for the Atlas mountains around, not the villages. They are very spoiled, but also very colourful!

May days in South Limburg are perfect for a little walking trip. Little rivers, valleys, castles, water mills, ancient churches, it’s all there in walking distance from Valkenburg.
