Wadden Sea trip with oyster-picking

Learn about the tides, local wildlife and oysters in the wonderful Wadden Sea. Pit yourself against the stickiness of the mud and the hard shells of the oysters. An experience for the palate and the soul!

We head out at low tide and examine the wildlife in the Wadden Sea. Thousands of birds take advantage of the wealth of food available on their migratory routes and are often seen on the mud flats. White-tailed eagles breed in the area and we may see them scanning the surroundings for geese and ducks.
Huge numbers of mussels, snails and oysters can be found out on the banks. Pacific oysters are invasive, so the fact that we pick and eat plenty of them is actually a good thing.

The guide will have knives to help open the oysters, but you’re also very welcome to bring your own oyster knife if you wish to open them yourself. Clothing should reflect the weather conditions, with waterproof trousers and wellington boots recommended.

Waterproof gloves can be bought from the guide for DKK 25.00 per pair. Wellingtons can be hired for DKK 25.00 per pair. Contact the guide on +45 28144464 in order to reserve the correct size. Must be paid for on arrival.

The trip isn’t suitable for people with walking difficulties or wheelchair users due to the fact that we’ll be heading out onto the Wadden Sea mudflats.
