Covid-19 check

On August 11 2021, the board of Noorder Poort decided that from August 17, all participants in our programs (as well as all other guests and volunteers) can only come here if they

• are fully vaccinated
• have performed a PCR test with a negative result no later than 24 hours before arrival
• have recovered from Covid-19

If requested, you must be able to present proof: a QR code in the Coronacheck app (for Dutch people), or a vaccination certificate, or a certificate showing the result of your PCR test or a doctor’s statement showing you have recovered from Covid-19.
For the time being, the other measures against the spread of the virus also remain in force.

To register for one of our programs is quite simple and takes two steps.

Step 1:
Fill in the form below and submit it. If you have been in one of our programs before, you don’t have to fill in all fields. If none of the information has changed, you may just enter the program in which you wish to register, your name, your email-address and the room type (single or double).
You can also register by telephone. On weekdays, you can call between 09:00 and 12:00 am to
+31 521 321204. You may want to do that if you register at the last moment. In that case we can tell you right away if there is still room.

We will confirm your registration within two weekdays. Payment details are included in the confirmation.

Step 2:
Deposit the fee for the course into either one of our bank accounts:
NL96TRIO 0197 61 9223, BIC: TRIONL2U of the Noorder Poort in Wapserveen (Dutch account).

Your registration is final only after we have received the payment. Please don’t wait too long.

After registration

About a week before the start of the program you will receive an email with practical
information: What you need and don’t need to take with you, and at what times we can pick you
up at Steenwijk station.


For all registrations from May 1, 2021, if canceled up to fourteen days before the start of the program, we will charge 10% of the course price as administration costs, with a minimum of € 25.

If you cancel less than fourteen days before the start, we will charge 50% of the course price. If you cancel within 24 hours before the start of the program, you pay the full course price.
