Saturday hike in Schoorl

Hey everyone,

Schoorl is about 20 minutes from Alkmaar. It's the highest dunes in the Netherlands. They offer a few hikes (10km to 30 km). I suggest we do the 10km just like last year. 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,

MJ

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.

    Great turn-out in-spite of the gloomy morning. Don't forget to upload the pics :) For those who asked about the upcoming events, check out our calendar: http://www.meetup.com/NL-Adventurers/#calendar There's a hike next Sat as well, but you need to have a bit of experience for that, not recommended for beginners.

    Are there any filmmakers going to this? I can't make it but I think this day trip would make a nice little film clip (2 to 5mins) for our Amsterdam Tv show on Salto 1 (https://www.facebook.com/pages/SO-DAM-LOCAL/611973908874311). A little film about the day trip, short interviews with people on the walk, and a chat with the organisers about the Adventurers' Meetup group and what you've got coming up on the calendar. Get in touch if you think you can do it! [masked].

    March 13, 2014

    • Venkat

      I asked a friend of mine who's a professional film maker. She couldn't make it on this day; we are planning to shoot on some other event. We'll keep you posted :)

      1 · March 15, 2014

    • Cathy-Central

      Great - have a brilliant day everyone! Venkat - a little film about the Adventurers would be brill. And we could always mix in some stills from the Schoorl walk. Let me know which event you'd like to film ... I might be able to join too. Cheers Cathy

    March 20, 2014

  • Aletta

    Hi everyone, I made a mistake, I thought the walk was on Sunday, as the message said March 23 first. Saturday I can't go, sorry. Maybe see you next time. Have a nice walk.

    March 20, 2014

  • MJ

    Dear everybody, I can already see that Saturday will be a big succes :) Happy that so many of you can make it. It's start at 11:30 so be there at 11:30!!! Saturday we will do the 10 km hike (color blue). We will start the blue hike with the stairs. If you are late and we left already, I suggest you to start the blue hike on the other way (dont start with the stairs). Since the hikes in Schoorl are in a circle, you will meet with us at some point in the way. Lets now hope for nice weatehr :D See you Saturday.

    Make sure your health insurance is in order. You'd think hiking on the beach is harmless, but past incidents have proven otherwise :-P
