** NEW DATE !! ** Midsummer Night Hiking on Texel (23km)

Needs a location

€2.00

*** !! NEW DATE !! Due to bad weather, event on 26th CANCELLED and DELAYED by SIX DAYS. See you all FRIDAY Juli 1st, 20.00 @ Den Helder. ***

Explore Texel during the shortest night of the year!

From Juli 1st to Juli 2nd, the sun sets at 22:04 and rises again at 5:21. And it only shortly really gets pitch black from 00:53 to 02:51. To add to the darkness, you will see the moonrise at 02.57. A perfect walk! I uploaded some info about the solstice in the picture section for the science nerds.

The island Texel has a wide open view of the sea, dunes and national park for maximum sunset and sunrise possibilities. We have an unobstructed view from the northwest, where the sun sets, and the northeast of the island, where the sun will rise above the island Vlieland.

We will start walking from De Slufter to the lighthouse at the northern tip of the island. The first part is through a Dutch nature reserve area called "Nationaal Park Texelse Duinen", rich with bird and plant life. After half an hour, we reach the sea for sunset. Remco has some information about this place for you.

At the half way point we will pause for a break for around 1,5-2 hours. We will bring a stove and make coffee, tea, soup and chocolate milk for you.

If the weather is clear, we can lie down on our mats and stargaze as there is no moon visible for some time too. :D. We can tell each other crazy stories and play games like Mafia (Weerwolven in Dutch) or Life size Cluedo.

After the break, we walk to the viewpoint in the north near the lighthouse. We watch the sun rise and after that, take the bus back to the ferry.

So, the plan in detail (under construction).
20:00. Gathering at Den Helder NS train station. Co-organiser Coen is waiting there for you.
20:12. Bus to ferry terminal (around €2,00)
20:30. Ferry to Texel (€2,50 per person)
20:55. Bus from ferry terminal to Slufter (around €4.50)
21:30. Start hiking
22:04. Sunset at the beach.
01.00. Break as we walked 13km. We provide warm drinks and some snacks during the only real dark part of the trip.
02.30. Start walking the remaining 10km as sunlight slowly starts to return (02.51) and we see the moonrise (02.57 in the southeast).
4:45. Arrival at the lighthouse area for best view of the sunrise at 5:11. We can have breakfast together and can brew tea and coffee for you to stay awake. :)
7:00. Bus back to ferry terminal (around €6.00)
8:00. Ferry back to Den Helder

Of course you can also stay longer on the island if you still have energy. Do so on your own planning.

Payment
We ask a small fee for this event as we will bring some pots, pans, gas and stoves. Plus some drinks and snacks. Also it shows a commitment for coming to this event. You will get a refund if you cancel within 24h of the start of the event or if the event is canceled or you can't come to the rescheduled time. You can pay for the event through this Tikkie link:

https://tikkie.me/pay/9so0vlvg9h3lah62rhsa

If you RSVP but don't pay within 1 day of signing up, we will take you off the list.

What to bring:
- Drinks and snacks to share. We will bring tea, coffee, soup and chocolate milk for all, but it's appreciated if you also bring some. There will be pots, pans and stoves.
- Bring enough food for the day for yourself.
- Foam mat and/or sleeping bag for star gazing (if it gets chilly)
- Cup, plate and spoon to eat and drink out of
- Good hiking boots, preferably water proof as parts are muddy and on the beach.
- Warmer (water proof) jacket and maybe a hat to stay warm and dry. Poncho in case of a small rain.
- 1,5L of water. Share some for brewing tea or coffee.
- Small trash bag
- For rapid entry to the ferry, you are advised to book online (Teso.nl). But, only book a few hours before departure as we can cancel the trip due to bad weather. The ferry always has enough capacity.
- We keep you informed. If there is bad weather, we will cancel 24-48 in advance.
- Respect nature, the silence and others.

- If the weather is bad we might reschedule this event to another date.
- We replanned the walk as some parts in nature are closed. This leads to an increase in distance from 16 to 23km. But, longer is more fun. So you get more for free. :)

If you have any questions or suggestions what we can do during the night, please feel free to get in touch!
