Every year there is a hiking tour around the whole island Ameland, Rondje Ameland, of about 50 km. What started as a joke at the bar in 1997, has become a true hiking event nowadays. The start is at 05.00 AM in Hollum. Via the beach of Hollum, along the sea wall at the southside of the island to Nes and Buren and then along the beach back to Hollum with a musical welcome on the Zwaneplein. Rondje Ameland is not a running competition but a beautiful hiking event.
