Experience the Wadden Sea
Package: Wadden Sea: tidal flat walking and sleeping in straw
No recreational activity is more characteristic for the Wadden Sea region than this tidal flat walking: experience the Wadden Sea, by a walk on the flat side. Reveal what is at the bottom of the Wadden Sea by taking a walking tour. Twice a day – in the hours around low tide, the Wadden Sea gets dry and you have the chance to actually get there and experience how it feels like to stroll on the sea bed. Professional guides will take on a discovery trip. Such a trip is an excellent opportunity for walkers to enjoy a ramble through the natural elements.
You feel far away from daily life – experiencing a vast space, open horizon, salty wind and clouds of birds. Cockles and worms under your feet cause movement in the water and sand. Prawns flash by your ankles and you can see flatfishes close by in the shallow water. Legions of small crabs, snails, mussels, starfishes and hermit crabs are revealed by the retreating sea. One needs to have a sharp eye to discover how smart they are to hide to survive during hours of dryness.
The trip starts in Pieterburen (about 20 minutes drive from the Hayema Heerd). You will be received with coffee / tea and cake and a slide show about the extraordinary nature and history of the Wadden Sea.
Wadden Sea, UNESCO World Heritage Discover!
The Wadden Sea is the world’s largest interconnected system of sand and mud flats exposed at low tide. The Wadden Sea is not very deep water area with a relatively flat coastline. The habitat has tidal channels, seagrass meadows, mussel beds, sandbars, mudflats, salt marshes, beaches and dunes. There are many plant and animal species, including marine mammals such as the harbor seal, gray seal and harbor porpoise. It is also the breeding and wintering area for 10 to 12 million birds annually. The area is one of the last remaining large-scale intertidal ecosystems where natural processes continue to function.
