A guided excursion in the Drowned Land of Saeftinghe has been an unforgettable experience for many visitors. In this large, 36km2 primeval landscape, you will experience a wilderness that is completely unique for the Netherlands and Belgium. Our knowledgeable guides will take you into an otherwise inaccessible part of this nature reserve to tell you about the rich nature and history of the largest brackish marsh of Europe. Highlights of the excursions could include: bubbling freshwater springs, spotting a sea eagle, experiencing drift sand, visiting remnants of an old sheep farm and, of course, numerous panoramic views.
