Oyster safari in the Wadden Sea

Culinary experiences are of many kinds, but nothing beats consuming a newly-opened oyster out in the stunning landscape of the Wadden Sea.

Season October to April. Go with nature guide on an oyster trip and pick oysters in the Wadden Sea. It is only recommended to gather oysters at the cool time of year, ie. the season starts in mid-October when the water temperature has dropped, until spring - until the end of April. By opting out of the warmest months, the risk of the oysters containing toxic planktonic algae is minimized.

At your own risk
Eating oysters collected in the Wadden Sea takes place at your own risk.

The height difference between the ebb and flow can be as much as two meters, and the Wadden Sea hike should only take place with a nature guide, who can bring the hikers ashore before the tide comes.
