Discover the lakes outside Gouda (Reeuwijkse plassen)
The first Cloudwalker hike since the pandemic outbreak is a fact! Please read the following before signing up!
This is a try out hike with a small group.
We keep a social distance during the entire day, respecting each other as well as other people we might meet.
If you, or anyone in your household, experience covid related health issues, you cancel your rsvp and stay home.
Bring your own hand sanitizer.
Unnecessary travelling with public transport is discouraged by the government. If you decide to do anyway, it s your own responsibility and you take the necessary actions like wearing a face mask. That goes as well for car pooling.
Depending on the government regulations, things can changed and event could get cancelled.
We did this hike 2 years ago as well. It s about 20 km hike around the Reeuwijkse plassen (lake area). It´s absolutely stunning this time of the year. Dark blue lakes glittering in the sun, surrounded with lush greenery and pretty little houses (and some impressive mansions too). We make a few stops on the way with the possibilities for a swim if you like, enjoy an ice-cream and just relax on the beach at the ´surfplas´.
Bring a packed lunch, snacks and plenty of water.
Good shoes are essential too as some parts will be on paved roads.
It´s handy to bring some cash (not sure it s possible to pin) for an ice-cream. If we are lucky we bump in to Antonio, an Italian man selling delicious ice-cream from his bicycle!
And don t forget to bring swimwear if you fancy cooling down in one of the lakes.
