Each year, the guides of 'The Drowned Land of Saeftinghe' organise a Christmas hike of 3 hours, followed by hot chocolatemilk, bubbles and sweets. in 2016, it was very misty and freezing, but the hike was worth wile the cold temperature. It was muddy, but interesting to listen to the history of the region, discovering edible plants. Luckily, I had... More

To make it clear, I have a very decent hiking experience, incl summits over 5000 meters in the Andes, peaks in the Toubkal mountain range, etc but in the "Drowned land of Saeftinghe" besides the basic 1 km walking route (with mostly wooden floor), the routes that are allowed without guide, such as the "Boots-route" is really very very poorly...

The perfect team building with friends to do on a sunny Saturday afternoon is made a trip to Saeftinghe. You have a walk from about 6 kilometres in 3,5 hours. The guided tour bring you back in history and tells you which plants you can and can't eat. One tip : bring definitely boots!

This is one of the beautiful landscape you can find along the Netherlands´ sea. You can take an excursion walking on the beach with a guide or just enjoy the beauty of it.

Enjoyed a guided tour of this great natural reserve. About 4 hours of adventure through wetlands while the water had receded to its lowest point. Got to know what quicksand means. Walked both on the plateau, as well as in the tidal riverbeds. Learned about the (migratory) bird population, the origin of the pieces of bog that you sporadically encounter... More

Het Verdronken land van Saeftinghe is a natural 'flood area'. If you want to go for a quiet walk in nature. This is definitely the place to go. You enter the area at your own risk, but there are 2 well marked routes. One 'droge planken' route (1km). As the area is flooded regularly, passages are made in the form... More
