What you'll do

We shall meet at a suitable point, depending on where you are coming from or are staying in The Hague. From there, I shall drive you to the dunes. The dunes surrounding The Hague are part of the National Park Hollandse Duinen. We shall have a walk of around 2 - 2.5 hours (8.0 kilometers / 5.0 miles) through this gorgeous landscape. The dunes offer a wide variety of vegetation and wildlife. Our route shall be partly on paved roads but for the greater part on sand. Here and there we need to climb the dunes. During the tour I will tell you about the history of this area as well as its importance both as a defense against the sea and as a source of our drinking water in this area. If we are lucky, we may encounter some of the larger wildlife roaming around in this area such as Konik horses, Galloway cows, deer and foxes. After we have finished our walk, I will drive you back to the meeting point. Please contact me regarding any questions or in case your desired date is not open in the calendar.

Please contact me about any modifications or special wishes to customize your experience.

I was born and raised in The Hague and I am already living in the city practically my entire life. I would love to show you the dunes surrounding The Hague which are not only a gorgeous nature area, but also protect us against the sea and are the source of our drinking water. I have visited and enjoyed hospitality in over 100 countries privately or for my work and enjoy meeting people from countries and cultures all around the world. I would like to give you the same warm welcome and wonderful experience that I have so often enjoyed myself.

Wanderung durch eine überraschend schöne Natur, mit einer Person, der man die eigene Freude anmerkt, anderen Menschen diesen Flecken näher zu bringen. Unbedingt zu empfehlen.

Highly recommend this tour, the host is very friendly, personalises the tour for you and has a lot of local’s insights and stories to tell for the whole duration of the activities. Even the drives to the location and back were thoughtful and entertaining. Also the environment and views were extraordinary for the Netherlands which is seemingly flat but has these beautiful dunes and forest. Would go again and recommend to friends and family who visit.

We wanted to explore the Dunes around The Hague but wanted someone local to guide us through. And trust me when I say this that there could be no one better than Erik to show us around. He picked us up from our home , which was really nice of him and told us a lot about The Hague and the neighbouring areas during the drive to and from the Dunes. He suggested us to go early so that we could see more of the wildlife with less crowds and we were lucky to spot the Galloway cows and a few birds like Coots . The walk was very scenic and peaceful with Erik explaining the significance of the area for the residents. Overall the tour was amazing with a lot of information about the Dunes, The Hague, The Netherlands and the Dutch lifestyle and history . We would recommend this experience 100% and can’t wait to go to Erik’s bike tours in the coming weeks.
