End of offering organized hikes

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

At the end of the year 2019 I will stop organizing weekly hikes. No specific reason; I just decided that after 6 years of doing this the moment has come to do something else. I certainly will continue hiking and taking pictures, just no longer as a guide but as a participant or on my own.

I have decided to keep the facebook page of Curaçao Hiking alive and to use that page to further promote hiking in Curaçao.

Overview of the difficulty level of my hikes

With the introduction of the new version of the hike to the Kabrietenberg (Mountain of the goats) a new challenging hike became part of the offering. I would classify the different routes as follows:

Most challenging hikes

  • Mountain of the goats / Kabrietenberg
    Challenging because of duration and number of climbs/descents
  • Seru Jamanika
    Challenging because of duration and challenging climb and descent of the Seru Jamanika

These two hikes will be done in a higher pace than my other hikes and with less explanation during the hike.

gdpr awareness copyOn May 25 the new GDPR-regulations become valid for all European companies and companies that deal with people living in Europe. Because Curaçao Hiking organizes hikes for locals and tourists this means that this new law also is valid for the European tourists who register for a hike or who subscribe to the Curaçao Hiking newsletter.
In simple terms this new privacy regulation means that you as a customer have the right to know what information about you is kept and for what purpose it is kept. Also you have the right to ask this information to be sent to you or to request the deletion of the information about you.

JanThiel rondom 20180305 020 Luminar2018 edit webAfter a hike I normally post pictures of that hike on my facebook page. That is easy and convenient. But when you want to look back at previous hikes you have to scroll down quite a bit to find these. To make it easier to look at pictures of previous hikes I have created a new website with pictures taken during the scheduled hikes, pictures taken during hikes with other hiking organizations in Curaçao, pictures taken during my own hikes or hikes with friends and, last but not least, my pictures of the beautiful underwater world of Curaçao.
