SCHOORL (AAN ZEE)
The friendly village of Schoorl lies beside the highest and widest dunes in the country. This coastal village probably has the most beautiful dune area in North Holland, but has always remained humble. At the bottom of the 50+ metre-high climbing dune – where children gleefully roll to the bottom – is the same café that has been here for over a century. And the trees? They have grown just as old.
Schoorl can rightfully refer to itself as a National Park and has over 60 kilometres of hiking paths. Walk beside heaths, forests, the bird lake and over the dunes that are sometimes as wide as 5 kilometres. De Kerf is also unique to this region: a natural inlet in the dunes where sea water flows into the dunes at high tide. This is the natural habitat of the green woodpecker and the rare night swallow and during the summer months white orchids blossom everywhere.
Furthermore, the finest, most challenging and demanding mountain bike course in the Netherlands can be found here. Substantial climbs, loose sand and beautiful panoramas ensure that you work up a sweat with love. After a day of hiking or cycling you’re bound to spend some time on one of the many terraces or enjoy a bite to eat in the cosy restaurants.
Schoorl lies at a distance of 9.7 km (a 15 minute drive).
