Digital Walking App – Buiten Beeckestijn

It’s no longer necessary to struggle with an awkwardly folded map if you want to stay on the right path. This dedicated mobile app contains four digital routes that take you through many of the highlights of IJmond – through dunes, forests, cities, over dikes and along the coastline.

Download the app to your smartphone and enjoy clear and concise instructions that will guide you to the next point – as well as additional information about the area along the way. It offers up personal stories, amusing anecdotes, sounds of nature and even video fragments, enlightening the walking experience and showcasing the very best of IJmond.

It’s easy to get started. First download the free AbelLife app in iTunes or the Android app store. Then purchase the ‘Buiten Beeckestijn’ route package. The four routes, including a bonus sailing route for Amsterdam-Velsen-Zuid, cost €3.99. The app works entirely offline, so you will have no unexpected data costs while on the trail.
