Let’s have an inspiring photowalk in the dunes.
Located to the south of Zuid-Kennemerland National Park, the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen make up a nature reserve that also helps supply drinking water for Amsterdam. The name of the nature reserve, Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen, roughly translates as ‘Amsterdam water supply dunes’. A labyrinth of channels and gullies in the dunes serves to supply water intended for water abstraction.
The variety of dunes also means a rich diversity of plants and animals. You can spot red deer, roe deer, foxes and rabbits between the trees, ponds and grasslands. This is also a great place for birdwatchers, as the area draws thousands of (water) birds. A few years ago sheep and cows were set loose to graze in the dunes.
We will walk through the park into the dunes, hopefully we will see a lot of deers on the way and if we are lucky perhaps foxes.
** please note **
keep a close eye on the weather forecast, as we have often walked in the rain, not less fun though 🙂
ALSO: even though we will have coffee and / or lunch afterwards as usual, the walk will be around 3 hours long… bring something to eat or drink for during the walk
