The many walking routes along cosy villages, nature reserves and over the dunes. That's what makes Ameland special!

Walking routes with distances from 3 to 25 kilometres and even 50 kilometres. All of them, here on Ameland.
On Ameland, you will also find several routes for young and old. The Paddenpad on Ameland is a fun route for young children. The path is 2.1 km long and the starting point is at Nes Nature Centre. From there, you walk a short distance along the outskirts of Nes. Pretty soon you end up in the forest and have a choice of routes. Also perfect for walking with your dog! On the signs along the way, you can read fun information about nature and life on Ameland.
For the real hiking enthusiasts, Hollumerduinen and Lange Duinen are highly recommended. The footpath is 8.6 km long and the starting point is Oranjeweg.

Particularly beautiful!
