Excursion through the salty creeks of De Slufter

Discover, together with the forester, what makes the De Slufter salt marsh area so special! From the salt-tolerant plants to the animals you'll encounter in this two-hour walking tour. You enter the part that is only accessible with an excursion. There is no path; you just stroll through the area. The guide knows the way and tells you about the history of the area along the way and introduces you to salty plants such as samphire and sea lavender. You also cross a (shallow) gully on the way, so boots are necessary. Or when the weather is nice, just take off your shoes! De Slufter is part of the National Park Dunes of Texel and is managed by Staatsbosbeheer. Start time: check the Ecomare website for the current times. The excursions last 2 hours.
