Trails & Hikes, Elven Trail & Pirates Trail








Trails & Hikes


Elven Trail in Berg en Dal

The woods and hills around Berg en Dal are a unique area in the Netherlands, not unlike the French Ardennes. Between the village and a hill called "Devil's Mountain" lie the woods where we set up our Elven Trail.

You will be searching for the last Elf inhabiting the forest of Berg en Dal. By learning to decipher the Elven Script "Tengwar" on the mysterious map, you will find the trail through the woods. On route your team will solve riddles, you'll do team tasks with the Elf and your map leads you along the most beautiful paths and spots.

You can start on the Elven Trail from accommodation Eversbosch 1, 2 or 3 at the Maikenshof in Berg en Dal, or from pancake restaurant De Heksendans, also in Berg en Dal.

For adults & children age 7+

Pirates' Treasure Trail in Berg en Dal

The last of four pirate brothers, cap'n Barend Stormcrow has been searching for the treasure of his father, the notorious Cap'n Splinter. Stormcrow welcomes your group at pancake restaurant De Heksendans or at group accommodation De Maikenshof, and from there the treasure hunt will commence.

This treasure trail leads through the woods of Berg en Dal. On the way, secret locations have to be found where you'll have to crack codes, which open Stormcrow's ancient chest. With the contents you'll find the route to the next location, and in the end you'll discover the hiding place of old cap'n Splinter's fortune: The Treasure of Devil's Mountain...

For children, age 5-10 years. The Pirates' Trail is adapted to the age of the children.

Activity time: approx. 2,5 hrs | Min. price € 10,- p.p. for kids

Orientation- & Compass Trails

We design and organize various orientation trails on demand, at your preferred location and for that we use around 10 different forms of orientation. Various themes are possible with theatrical posts on route. Your trail starts with a quick course for using map and compass, and then the group starts off on the trail along the most beautiful paths and spots we can find.

For adults & children age 5+
