Thirty dayhikes
Each issue of the magazine Grasduinen (in Dutch) contains two articles in which an editor writes about a dayhike in the countryside. Usually the hike is situated in the Netherlands, occasionally in Belgium or Germany (the neighbouring countries). In the past years Niels Kooyman walked several of these routes, making photographs that illustrate the articles. The magazine has now, in a co-operation with Tirion publishers, bundled thirty of the best articles in a book called 'Natuurwandelen in Nederland'. Niels made pictures for five of them. The book comes together with a set of weatherproof maps (all the routes are recently checked). The book is well made, beautiful photographs are brought to you in a stylish and balanced lay-out. This publication can be ordered from (product 207528).

Tour of the Netherlands
Journalist Paul Vreuls wrote a series of eleven articles for a Dutch outdoor magazine about touring the periphery of Holland. Niels followed in his tracks and supplied all photographs for the magazine features. The articles were collected and published in a stunning book entitled De Ronde van Nederland (Tour of the Netherlands).

...This book is more than a cycling guide; it is a contemplative and poetic story full of exceptional insights. A book that towers above all other cycling guides in the style of writing, publication values and content. A breath of fresh air!... (NBD-Biblion).

The GRP Drenthepad (Drenthe Path) has recently been revised and so has the guiding booklet for which Niels did the photography. This 324 kilometres long footpath not only covers the province Drenthe but also crosses the borders with Groningen and Friesland. In the guide directions are given, both in text form as on maps. Besides practical information, attention is given to the local language and poetry of the province Drenthe.

At the request of Wandelplatform (Rambler Platform), Niels did the photography for the new guide to the Scholtenpad, a footpath around the village Winterswijk. The guide is part of a series on regional walks and owes its name to stately farmhouses with surrounding estates, known as the ‘scholtegoed’. The guide describes more than a 100 kilometres of footpaths, which can be split up into day trips using the town of Winterswijk as a base. The path is described in two directions and shown on 22 topographical maps. All practical information, such as public transport and lodging addresses, is included and of course the guide provides background information about the landscape and features on the way. The guide is for sale in specialty bookshops or can be ordered directly from Wandelplatform-LAW, (12.50 euro plus postage and handling):
