Veluwe National Park is the Netherlands largest area of connected woodland. Its forest mosaic comprises of pine stands on glacial moraines, deciduous beech and oak woodland, coniferous plantation and sand dunes all bordering fertile agricultural lands. Its connectivity allows it to host a dense population of large herbivore species such as red deer, wild boar and roe deer which are all prime prey species for the newly arriving wolf population
Leaving Amsterdam we will drive one hour east to the densely forested area of the Veluwe where we will talk about the forests history and then specifically begin to look for Grey Wolf spoor. Wolves are newly arrived in the Netherlands and open up a world of imagination into the idea of 'the wild'. We will learn about their ecology and movements and understand how their presence influences the fauna and flora around them. Alongside this line of interest we will walk within the forest and discover the infinite connections that exist between species of fungi and plants, between soil organisms and megafauna and between man and nature.
'' Kristian is a guide who finds traces everywhere, he reads them and then the ground where you walk comes to life. So much knowledge and a lot learned'' Fred Haaijen, city ecologist of Amsterdam
If you have a specific interest to camp out overnight then this one day trip can turn into a 2 day expedition as we will experience a true walking safari experience by camping out in the forest and waking up to fresh spoor along our trail.
