Hiker’s Cabins (Trekkershutten)
A Hiker’s Cabin (Trekkershut) is a wooden structure which is an ideal place to spend the night during a walking or cycling holiday or a family weekend away. There are various types and sizes of cabin, all of which can be rented for a single night. All offer certain basic facilities such as a comfortable bed, pillows, somewhere to sit, light and electricity.
Natural Campsites (Natuurkampeerterreinen)
To spend time at a Natural Campsite (Natuurkampeerterrein) is to enjoy the freedom and tranquillity of the great outdoors. These sites are small-scale and set in the open countryside. They offer basic amenities including full sanitary facilities. Sustainability and environmental responsibility are the watchwords.
There are currently 134 Natural Campsites (Natuurkampeerterreinen®, a registered trademark) in the Netherlands, 11 in France and 1 in Belgium where campers can spend one or more nights surrounded by nature. De Groene Koepel is responsible for quality control and accreditation. We also publish the annual Green Guide (Het Groene Boekje), a listing and map of all Natural Campsites. The booklet provides all information needed to enjoy these very special facilities, as well as the Natural Camping Pass (Natuurkampeerkaart).
Group Natural Campsites (GroepsNatuurkampeerterreinen)
The Group Natural Campsites (GroepsNatuurkampeerterreinen) are larger areas which can accommodate groups such as clubs, associations, school parties, scout troops or friends and family who wish to enjoy the camping experience in a tranquil, scenic setting. The group can reserve an entire site or a section such as a field.
Nature is an important component of the Group Natural Campsite experience. In fact, it is virtually the only component. There are no swimming pools, discos, cafes or children’s playgrounds. There is, however, a spot at which everyone can gather around the campfire. Sanitary facilities are good. There are currently twenty accredited Group Natural Campsites.
