AMELAND


The Wadden Sea hiking tour to the island of Ameland starts at the Holwerd pier, where the cars are also parked. The first few kilometers on the intertidal flats are muddy, so we start at a leisurely pace. After a varied trip of approx. 3.5 to 4 hours through land reclamation works, mussel beds, and tidal creeks we arrive at the Oerderduin on the east side of the island. To the North Sea beach it is a stroll of 2 km. It s another 1.5 hour hike over the beach to the village of Buren but if you wish, transportation with a tractor and trailer to Buren can be arranged. After a wonderful break on the island, the ferry takes us back to Holwerd.
