Hiking on the seabed of the North Sea year round

Hiking on the seabed of the North Sea year round

Hiking Collection by Die Nordsee

No matter what time of year - mudflat hiking on the North Sea is always a unique experience. While you can experience the walk barefoot in summer, you might hear the crackling of the ice layers underneath you in winter. In any case, you will enjoy a fantastic view into the endless expanse, while the sea breeze with its slightly salty smell tickles your nose. As you go, you'll see crabs march to the sound of wadding snails and, with a bit of luck, you'll even catch some seals sunbathing. The tidal movements mean that the Wadden Sea — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — is subject to constant change. That's why fascination is guaranteed on every hike. While the tide is still powerful enough to carry the mighty forces of the North Sea, a few hours later you can explore the exposed seabed with almost dry feet.

Here we present you the starting points of eight exciting mudflat hikes with different focal points. The best way to experience them is with one of the certified guides. They know the Wadden Sea very well, tell exciting background information and are prepared for all eventualities. Request your information now and discover the Wadden Sea for yourself.
