Mid-summer night walk 2014


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kljpzDJmMY



Every year, on the day of summer solstice, mid-summer night walks will be organized in various locations in the country. The tracks are between 5 and 10KM. On the shortest night of the year, as the Sun goes down, it'll be a real adventure to walk along the beach, forest or dunes and come across the nocturnal creatures. This is also a charity event. When you register, you can optionally donate some contribution towards preserving the Natural Reserves. 


Main website: http://wandeltochten.midzomernacht2014.nl/
I was looking for a track that goes along the beach. Unfortunately, the ones in North Holland are already full. Found this one on an island in Zeeland. There are still three slots available:

22:30 - http://wandeltochten.midzomernacht2014.nl/deltakust_2
22:45 - http://wandeltochten.midzomernacht2014.nl/deltakust_1 
23:00 - http://wandeltochten.midzomernacht2014.nl/deltakust

Try to sign up for the first one; if full, the next time-slot & so on. Click on the "Doe mee" link and then DEELNEMER  -> GEEF JE OP ALS DEELNEMER to register. Cost: €14,50 per person. The form is only in Dutch. Of course, I assume either you know Dutch or know how to use Google Translate :) If you are still lost, drop me a message.


Return journey after the hike

As you might have noticed, we'll be finishing the walk well past midnight on Saturday (around 01:00 - 01:30). Public transport might be a hassle :( You can check it out on 9292 (starting address: Oosterweg, Ouddorp) For example, here it is for the return journey to Amsterdam:
http://9292.nl/reisadvies/ouddorp_oosterweg/station-amsterdam-centraal/vertrek/2014-06-22T0210

Is there anybody driving there and have places left in their car? Please post a comment below. My car is full.

Alternatively, one of you can volunteer to rent a taxi/mini-van to go to Rotterdam Central and share the costs.

      June 18, 2014

  • Venkat

    Hi people,
    Did everybody arrange their return transport? Anh & Tamiru might have places in their car. Even if you are not from Rotterdam, get a lift in their car to Rotterdam central and take the night train to your place.
    BTW, I expect the organizers to send us a mail today/tomorrow with details about the hike.

    June 18, 2014

  • Bidisha

  • Venkat

    Hi people, in response to my request about the Bever coupon, some of you replied that you could not locate the correct email containing the coupon from the organizers. The sender of that email would be: Midzomernachtloop, Natuurmonumenten <[masked]> and the subject: "Alsjeblieft! Je kortingscoupon van Bever"
    Thanks :)
