Hike the trek-bird-path and spend the night in style at the Valerius Hotel after the 3rd stage

The Trekvogelpad is a long-distance hiking trail that runs through the Netherlands and is one of the most popular hiking trails in the country. It follows the migratory route of the birds and runs from the North Holland town of Bergen aan Zee along the Dutch coast, the Veluwe and the Utrechtse Heuvelrug to the German border near Enschede. One of the stages of this route leads from Noordeinde via de Rijp, Spijkerboor, Wormer- and Jisperveld to Haaldersbroek. Valerius Boutique Hotel is perfectly situated on this route.

This stage of the Trekvogel Trail is about 20 kilometers long and leads through the beautiful North Holland landscape. The route starts in Noordeinde, a small village in the municipality of Alkmaar. From here the route leads through the picturesque town of De Rijp to Spijkerboor. De Rijp is known for its historic houses and narrow streets, while Spijkerboor is best known for its old fortifications from the time of the Amsterdam defense line.
