The W.H. Vliegenbos is a woodland park planted more than a century ago, with the idea that city people are also entitled to enjoy a little wilderness. During 24H Noord, you can join an expedition through this mini-Amazon of Amsterdam Noord. In the morning we’ll be hunting for animal tracks (tour in English), and at night listening to the sounds of the woods with Noord’s urban ecologist and his bat detector (tour in Dutch).

Kristian de la Riva leads the way on a hunt for tracks and other signs of animal, bird and insect life. Kristian is a professional safari guide, trained in South Africa, but also very happy in this little wood in Amsterdam.
Clickclickclickclickclick. In the woods at night, when you can’t use your eyes anymore, a world of sound comes to life. With his bat detector, Noord’s urban ecologist Fred Haaijen takes you on a journey through the sound frequencies of the Vliegenbos. If it rains, you can listen to the dripping in the darkness.
