Sunday hike in Schoorl.

Hey everyone,

Schoorl is about 20 minutes from Alkmaar. It's the highest dune in the Netherlands. They offer a few hikes (10km to 30 km). I suggest we do the 10km. It's very pretty since we'll have to walk across the dunes, on the beach and in the wood. Each hikes got a color, so you just fallow it. It's very easy. Impossible to get lost. All the hikes start and finish at the same place. There is a restaurent at the entrance, so we will go warm up with a drink afterwards.

There is paying parking in front of the entrance. There is no train station in Schoorl so you'll have to check on www.9292ov.nl to know the best way for you to get there. There is buses for sure.

We will leave at 11:30am so make sure your there on time, otherwise you might miss us :P.

Lets hope for nice weather,

Marie-Josee

PS: Meeting point is in front of the Bezoekercentrum. Its a big building. Lets wait for each other outside, in front of the main door.

    Guys and girls, I found some photos from that hike.
    You may find them here: http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/minras/album/143926/ Hope the interface is not too Russian, but if it is, there's a pagination at the bottom of the page.
    Sorry for the late post, I thought I've lost that memory card :)

  • MJ

    Hey everybody, I'm very hoping for better weather tomorrow, lets all cross our fingers. Ill be there for sure. Ill be doing the "Blue" walk. It's 10km. Its a nice mixe between beach, dunes, forrest and hills. You can fallow me or take an other walk (11km, 12km, 15km, 20km, 23km). If your train/bus are delay or if your stuck in traffic, we will wait a bit but not to long, since it wouldnt be fair for the on time. So you can take the blue walk and meet us in the restaurant afterwards. See you all tomorrow.

      March 7, 2013

      Hi Nicole, I'm living in Rotterdam, any chance I can get a lift with you also? I'd be happy to contribute to gas money.

    Hi guys & girls,
    I wonder if instead of waiting for the bus (and being dependent on it at the way back) it won't be better to hire bikes for a day at Alkmaar Station. There is a bike shop there, open from early morning till late at night, and hiring a bike for a day cost 7 euro. It's about 30 minutes biking to the meeting point from the Alkmaar station and the route seems to be quite picturesque. This is a page of the bike shop: http://www.fietspointstoop.nl/ so in case you are interested in this option, call them sometime this week and ask to reserve a bike for you.

    March 4, 2013

    • Anna N.

      One thing though... according to the latest prognosis, it might actually snow on Sunday. So I am now not sure about the bike option...

      March 6, 2013

    • Andrii S.

      Snow would make it even more interesting :)

    Would someone travelling either from Haarlem or Amsterdam Centraal
    with a Off-Peak NS 40% discount card offer to share the discount on train tickets with me?:-)

    March 4, 2013

    • Silvia

      If you are going from Amsterdam Central I´m in. I will confirm later on this week!

      March 4, 2013

    • Claire

      Actually the train from Haarlem doesn't pass through Amsterdam (I thought it would). If anyone still wants to travel with me from Haarlem, let me know, send me a message.

    @MJ: Do you know if we'll be following one of these tracks? http://www.uilenduin.nl/pages/38777/Wandel_en_fietsroutes.html I'll check if I can download the GPS route from somewhere.

    Hello fellow adventurers, my name is Michel Kleinjan. Professional climber in this country without any mountains. (except the dunes of Schoorl of course)
    I'll be missing the first meeting becouse I'm visiting the Dutch moutainsports day in Nieuwegein on 10 march.
    I'm joining this meetup because this spring will be a stunning adventure in the climbing world in Holland. I'm starting the first professional climbing team ever in Holland next to the Dutch climbing team. I like to inform you as adventurers about this big outdoor climbing adventure. Not by the internet but on a proper occasion live during one of the meetup events this spring. So I'll keep in touch and join in later this spring. See you all during the next meetup. Michel Kleinjan.

    Very nice area, if I would live in Noord Holland I would join you guys. Later this year I will organize a hike in "Kennemer Duinen" Wish you all a nice hike and good weather and fun!

    Hi Marie-Josee, do we need to pay for this? Thx

      of corse it is :)

  • Claire

    The only bus, that goes there from Alkmaar bus station is no 151. I agree with Anna, we should shift the meeting time to 11:15 am. It would be long too long to wait from 10:15 till 11:00 :-)

    1 · February 18, 2013

    • MJ

      Thanks for telling me that. We will put it for 11h30/45 instead.

      February 18, 2013

  • Anna N.

    I hope to come, unless some things go in the way. By the way, the only bus comes there once an hour at 9:10, 10:10, 11:10 and so on, so it probably makes sense to shift the start a bit.

    February 18, 2013

  • Kasia L.

    I am sure we can get lost if we try hard enough ;-)
