Walks

Some of the walks I've done in the Netherlands since 2019. All can be reached from Amsterdam by foot, bike or with public transport.

Many walks use sections of Multi-Day LAWs (Long Distance Hiking Trails) or Streekpaden; thematic or regional routes that are often loop walks. A good online source for this is Wandelnet.
