Description

Not afraid of climbing and descending a bit? Then conquer the Schoorlse Duinen, the widest dune area in the Netherlands with the highest dunes: the top of the highest dune towers 54 meters above the sea water. Plenty of room to get a breath of fresh air. A century ago it was one big sandbox here, now dozens of bird species breed, the most beautiful mushrooms grow and the sunlight plays with thousands of tree leaves. Cycle to the highest dunes, the oldest forests and the drifting dunes. Because a hundred years ago Staatsbosbeheer had the sand captured by planting trees, now some dunes are allowed to drift freely again. Get on your bike and enjoy the surroundings. You cycle through coniferous and deciduous forests, along heather, drifting dunes and burning sand. On the way you can take a rest at Camping Buitenenduin in Schoorl.
