17 km hike around the Naardermeer and along Fort Uitermeer

We have been to this beautiful area 13 october but couldn't do the hike because it rained too much, too hard, too long, Now let's have one more try. (of course if the weatherforecast is better)

In this national and international protected nature , benefit rare animals and plants of the clean water, swamp forest and wet meadows with shallow pools. 

In Naardermeer Area brood to 75 species of birds, including cormorants, purple herons and black terns. But bats, grass snakes and rare orchids are found here too. 

This trail around the Naardermeer is suitable for real walkers (17 km). During the route we walk along Fort Uitermeer, water, marsh and forest. 

I would like to advice you to wear good walking shoes ( because it might be a bit muddy)

***We'll do this hike together with The Brabant Adventurers ;-)

We'll gather at Boerderij Stadzigt. please look at ns.nl or 9292.nl how you can get there with public transport and at google maps if you come by car.

I found out that the weatherforecast in Naarden and area will be fine Sunday . Have a look on weeronline . 

more about this route you can find at this link : Naardermeer

we will visit Fort Uitermeer see picture below

    That was one bloo... I mean, muddy hike :) No amount of plastic bags could keep you away from the mud :) For the first-timers: see how much fun we have in our group (at the expense of others) :))
    Guess everybody will spend the rest of the day washing away the mud :)

  • Slawek

    Hi, looking forward to this one, hope that the weather holds and that people will not chicken-out because of a few drops ;)

    For those who travel by train, would it make sense to gather at 10:30 on the train station and walk to the farm together? Seems like it's a 22 min walk to the starting point (Boerderij Stadzigt) see below:

      see you there, Slawek.

      1 · November 17, 2013

    • Slawek

      ? You have more than enough time. You will be early. We are meeting at 10:30 on the Naardermeer-Bussum Station around 10:30, then we walk to the farm to meet people arriving by car (Verkant etc) so you should be fine as the trip officially starts at 11 from the farm

  • henry

    If the weather is good, I plan to bike from Utrecht. Anyone want to join?

    1 · November 10, 2013

    • henry

      Hey, I think it would take me about 1.5hrs, which includes a moderate pace and some time to get a bit lost. Its 26.5 kilometres, so we would probably want to get on the road at 9am and give ourselves 2 hours to get there.

      November 14, 2013

    • Martina Š.

      oh, sounds like a plan! ;)

      November 14, 2013

  • Venkat

    Muddy indeed :) We did this route a few years ago; for a few 100 metres, you'll have to go through a muddy farm field. There was no other way around. And it wasn't even raining on the days before the hike! Idea: bring plastic covers which you can wear over your shoes :)

    November 3, 2013

    • Marie-José D.

      How nice that you are joining ;)

    Hi guys, I'm a late cancellation I'm afraid, just realised it takes over an hour to get there by public transport and I can't leave Utrecht until at least 10am. Should have organised a ride with someone. Have a great hike!

    October 20, 2013

    • Marie-José D.

      Hi Maaike , did you notice the date? I have the impression that you think the hike is today 20 october...
