Overview of your Amsterdam tour:

This tour is a species-rich introduction to European birds. Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen is a nature reserve 3, 400 hectares (8, 400 acres) in size, bordering the North Sea, about a 40 minutes drive from Amsterdam. The east flank of the reserve is covered in mature deciduous forest hosting a variety of breeding birds: Common Chaffinch, European Robin, Nuthatch, Goshawk and many more. Walking west towards the North Sea, the landscape becomes more open, with sand dunes dotted with shrubs and trees and numerous clear-water lakes and canals. There is a large variety of songbirds and waterbirds to be found as well as raptors. Especially in winter, the reserve hosts a variety of ducks including Common Merganser, Smew, Common Goldeneye, Common Pochard and Tufted Duck. In spring and fall, the area is a migration hotspot. Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen is walking-only. Please ask me about a variant of this tour where we explore an equally beautiful neighbouring park (Nationaal Park Zuid-Kennemerland) by bike.

Your Amsterdam tour itinerary

(times are season-dependent; we try to enter the reserve just after sunrise) 5:30 AM Pick up by guide with rental car at your Amsterdam accommodation 6:15 AM Entering nature reserve at Vogelenzang We will be hiking leisurely, sitting down for breaks whenever desired. Bring snacks, drinks. Inside the park there are no food kiosks (or restrooms), but if you'd like to have lunch in a nearby restaurant at the close of the tour that is fine. Feel free to bring your own lunch if you prefer to do so. Depending on your wishes and abilities, total distance covered on foot, on slightly hilly terrain, will probably be between 5 and 15 km (3 and 9 miles). 1 PM Exiting reserve 1:45 PM Drop off at your Amsterdam accommodation
