Have you ever heard of 'wadlopen', the guided intertidal walks from the mainland to one of the islands Ameland and Schiermonnikoog? Your need to have a good hiking condition to participate in these walks as the distance is between 12 - 20km. It is definitely a unique experience however as this is one of the few places on earth where you can actually cross a complete sea...by foot! Departures are from the towns Holwerd and Lauwersoog in Friesland.
