The Wadden Sea was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2009. This is because of its unique habitat for more than 10,000 rare plant and animal species. The area has 5 inhabited islands, 2 of which will be visited during this trip. Experience the tranquillity and vastness of the Wadden Sea and enjoy the island feeling.

Experience the unique island feeling and get a breath of fresh air on the Wadden Sea

Program of the trip:

The Wadden Sea is dynamic. The Wadden Sea can be mirror-smooth, but storms can also rage from time to time. There are strong currents in the channels between the sandbanks due to the influence of ebb and flood. We have to take this into account when planning the trip, but this is the charm of the Wadden Sea. The trip is coordinated with the weather and tide just before departure and the trip is always discussed with all participants in advance.

The aim is to visit two islands during this midweek. On the islands, you will have plenty of time to explore the islands by bike, on foot or by public transport. The aim is also to go dry landfall. The ship is then moored on a sandbank after high tide. The water flows away with the low tide and the ship comes completely dry on the seabed. You can disembark to take a walk on the bottom of the Wadden Sea, a unique experience, which is almost impossible anywhere in the world. At high tide, the water will return and the ship will start floating again, then sail away.
On board, you will be fully catered for with delicious dinners. After a long weekend away, you will be completely recharged.
