Discover exciting coastal mudflat excursions around the breathtaking Wadden Sea, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Several mudflat expeditions are organised in Den Helder such as mudflat hiking and bird watching excursions. Hike through mudflats, sandbanks and mussel beds during low tide.
You can also embark on mudflat excursions in Den Oever, a fishing village located near the Afsluitdijk. Mud, water and vast open spaces make up the ingredients for a wonderful day out on the mudflats.
Looking to spot seals? Seal spotting tours on the Wadden Sea are available in Den Oever. Admire these beautiful creatures in their natural surroundings during the cruise.
Or join an expedition organised by the Wadvissersgilde. They help you discover everything from the sea, both above and below the surface. The tours depart from Den Oever, taking you to the most beautiful spots on the Wadden Sea.
Enjoy the freshest of fish at the fish market in the port of Den Oever every Saturday morning.
