It is getting colder and darker outside, so it is time for the Wampex! The Wampex is a kind of survival puzzle tour at night. The total length of the tour is about 25 to 27km, if you take the correct route. Experience or training is not necessary. The route is described cryptically and leads through beautiful natural environments, meadows and over unpaved paths in or near Drachten. This year three teams can participate, consisting of at least 5 people and at most 7. Along the trip some assignments need to be fulfilled and puzzles must be solved.
