Detailed program here

Travel and parking

Preferably, come to MAPAWAY using public transport. You can take bus 350 between Maastricht and Aachen. Get out at stop ‘Maastrichterlaan/Bosstraat’ and walk the Bosstraat all the way up for 10-15min till you see the Institute of Cartopology.

Do you come by car, please make use of the parking areas as indicated on this website.

Food and drinks

Alongside drinks and bites, there will be basic breakfast-, lunch- and dinner options. Quite a lot of them are expedition-proof so they can be taken along with you on one of the guided tours or workshops. All food and drinks are vegetarian, some are vegan.

The right gear

The program consists of many outdoor activities. The weather in the mountains is hard to predict so be dressed accordingly. There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear 😉
