Fancy blowing off some steam after exams? Always wanted to experience the cultural delights and coffee shops of one of Europe’s most renowned cities? Want to raise some money for a cause you care about? If you’d like a long weekend away with your friends without spending a fortune, then join Leeds RAG’s hitchhike to Amsterdam! After a ferry trip and a 160 mile hitch in a day, you’ll reach the beautiful city of Amsterdam, where you can relax, refresh, and celebrate your freedom. What’s more, you’ll have the satisfaction of having raised lots of money for charity!

With our carefully structured and experienced safety plan, hitching with Leeds RAG is fun and safe. And don’t worry about signing up on your own; our leaders will make sure everyone is put into groups of 2-4 with people they feel comfortable with.

“Having been to an introductory talk with my friends after Freshers week I knew this one was for me. Hitching over 160 miles to the beautiful, characteristic Dutch capital with little more than a ferry ticket and a bright orange t-shirt was an incredible adventure from start to finish. From the hitch to numerous coffee shops and bike rides with a load of new friends, this was definitely a trip to remember and all in the name of a good cause!” Jessica Phillips, 2013 Participant
