Hike, picnic and swim in Schoorl

Hey everyone,

Last hike was a succes so I decid to do it again. This time we will do it in a different way. I suggest to do the 10km hike and stop for a pic-nic and a swim (if the weather allows it). We will hike across the dunes and in the forrest. In the middle of the hike (at around 5km) we will arrive at a very quiet beach on the side of the North Sea. It's quiet since it's only accessible by walking or biking. Everyone could bring a pic-nic and a blanket. If you feel like it, bring your swimming suit. When we had enough of the beach, we will continue the hike :)

Schoorl is about 20 minutes from Alkmaar. It's the highest dunes in the Netherlands. It's very pretty. 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 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

      July 11, 2013

  • MJ

    So let's hope for nice weather people. Bring yourself a lunch and a little blanket to sit on. If the weather is warm bring your swimming suit.

    If its cold and windsy, sitting at the beach wont be fun so I have a plan B. We could do a longer hike (17km or 23km). We will have to decide before the hike. Lets keep our fingers cross for good weather. See you all Saturday.

    July 11, 2013

    • Ian G.
