We will explore together the National Park: we will walk through the forests, reaching the open dune landscape which is so characteristic of the coastline in the Netherlands. The oak and the pine leave space to sea buckthorn, hawthorn and dog rose. The dune grassland is a unique ecosystem, where the nutrient-poor soil hosts a wide variety of plants and insects.
We will walk until reaching the shoreline. After breathing the healthy air coming from the North Sea, we will make our return to the starting point.
Since we will a small group, we can adapt our hike.
