The trip to the island of Rottumeroog is very special. It is located in a closed nature reservation area in the Eastern Wadden Sea region. Our association has a special license to visit this protected area several times a year.
We gather at the fishing port of Lauwersoog and travel by bus to the starting point at the Emmapolder. The first hour of the trip is strenuous due to muddy land reclamation works. Gradually, the mudflats become easier to walk through. During the trip we cross several creeks en will encounter animals like seals and birds. From Rottumeroog we sail back to the mainland by boat.
The minimum group size is ca. 30 people, the maximum group size is 40 people.
