Volendam: Self-Guided GPS Treasure Hunt Tour

2. Volendam: Self-Guided GPS Treasure Hunt Tour

With the help of a GPS device and a booklet with questions, a nice walk through Volendam is made from Simonehoeve. Discover Volendam with its beautiful dike and harbour. In this treasure hunt there are a few stops where the children get something tasty to eat and drink with a voucher. The treasure hunt is officially 7km but can be shortened to 5km and with a little smuggling even to 3km so very suitable for all ages. At the end of the treasure hunt, every child can grab a small present and they also get something tasty. It's fun to do a GPS scavenger hunt without the stops, but with the tasty stops and the small reward at the end, it's also very manageable even for children who don't like walking at all. In addition, it is also very good and healthy to be outside.
