Sustainable activities

We believe the best experiences happen once you get out there.

We also think sustainability is super important. So here are just a few sustainable activities, for you and your group, that we think you'll enjoy.

Flood plains expedition

Duration: 2 hours

Do you know what a flood plain is? You can find these water meadows at many places in the Netherlands: our country has about 37 of these flood plains. You can describe them as an outlet valve between the river and the dike, which floods at high water. This ensures that we are as well prepared as possible for the rise in sea levels due to climate change. During this expedition a professional guide will tell you all the ins and outs by beautiful stories and various water experiments.

Earth house tour

Duration: 2 hours

Welcome to this special neighborhood in Olst: the most sustainable living area in the Netherlands since 2015.  Every house is built completely sustainable. For example, the rear wall of the houses are built into a hill for insulation and reinforcement, and the walls consist of car tires instead of concrete. Take a look at this neighborhood of the future with a guided tour. Afterwards there is time for discussion. What do you think of this way of building and living?
