This group explores the beautiful environment around Amsterdam with Dutch anthropologist Peter van der Werff. Peter hails from a family of foresters, game wardens, estate managers, landscape gardeners and flower growers. Moving outdoors is in their veins, and Peter joined them from a very early age.
As a university man he worked on poverty alleviation and environmental sustainability in all continents, and used the opportunities to combine his fieldwork with trekking abroad. As such, he developed the art of relaxed walking, reading the landscape and absorbing the impressions of mountains and coasts, forests and fields, cities and villages, while feeling that the walk is in the land already when he moves along the trail.
As a lifelong walker with endless curiosity, Peter organizes excursions for expats, students, colleagues, friends, relatives and others. He loves his company enjoying the walk and pleasant rest stops on the grass or at a café, chatting with the local people about how they relate to the physical environment and, most of all, silently soaking in the variation, beauty and freshness of nature.
