About Hetty

Off the beaten track: hiking and spotting wildlife in the dutch dunes hosted by Hetty

by Pascal Raymond Dorland

As a fan of the outdoors, deer watching in the Dutch coastal dunes is an exciting experience. My passion is to understand the uniqueness and fragility of nature in order to protect her. During my Environmental Science studies in Amsterdam, it became clear to me that most of our outdoor leisure activities conflict with nature, so I decided to build awareness amongst people to enjoy nature in a sustainable way! I am a curious and energetic person, and have traveled and worked in West Africa, the Caribbean and the Netherlands. Born in the Netherlands with an Asian background, I have developed into an open-minded discovery enthusiast, who likes to work and interact with people from all over the world.

  1. Carine Zaayman says:

    What an absolutely wonderful experience to see the plantlife as well as the wildlife in a beautiful and varied setting, and a unique view of the Dutch landscape! Apart from seeing the beauty, it was interesting to learn about the dunes and their history, the climate and it’s challenges as well as the function of the dunes to purify water. All this was conveyed to us with charismatic enthusiasm by Hetty, and we could not ask for a more sensitive and engaged guide. Together, Sjoukje and Hetty were admirably ready to arrange the excursion, the memory of which we will treasure! Thank you to both!
