Basecamp is a place to spend the night in peace on the coast in a raw area in IJmuiden. Where nature, sea and industry come together between the marina, the beach and the Kennemermeer in the dunes, you’ll find Basecamp. A place that also serves as a base for experimenting with new and sustainable forms of living, energy and food supply. While you enjoy this undisturbed dune area on the coast, you contribute unnoticed to a sustainable experiment. Read more about this initiative called FabCityNature here.
From the Tiny Houses you step directly into the Kennemer dunes. A vast nature reserve that extends all the way to Zandvoort. Extensive hiking and biking trails ensure days of fun in the dunes. In 2 minutes you walk from your Tiny House to the beach of IJmuiden. By bike, car and bus you can easily go to surrounding cities (Haarlem, Bloemendaal aan Zee and Amsterdam). But you can also explore the area by boat. Moor the boat in the neighbouring Marina, cruise along the North Sea and the North Sea Canal from here.
Wake up surrounded by the sound of the sea in the shelter of the dunes. At a unique spot on the coast of IJmuiden you can spend the night in one of our special Tiny Houses.
This location will be the base of our sustainable mission in the coming years. Here we study urgent issues such as coastal development, water safety, climate change, sea level rise, new forms of living and working and the everyday life of tomorrow! Here we learn to build with nature.
Get a breath of fresh air and empty your head! From Basecamp IJmuiden you can walk straight onto the beach. If you turn left, you can walk towards Zandvoort. If you go to the right, you’ll soon see the pier, where you can walk all the way to the lighthouse and see what the anglers catch from the sea.
