- Witberg Hike
This is the most important part of the concession we are waiting for. We have already received several requests, but unfortunately we are unable to confirm this hike at the moment. Should your clients be interested, we can alternatively offer them a full day hike into the dunes. Should the concession be granted before your guests arrive, we can change the booking to the overnight hike if the guests should still be interested.
The hike will be a two-nights/three day hike to Witberg all year round. Starting time would be afternoon and the walking distance would be 20 - 25 km with a minimum of two and maximum of 12 persons.
