26 Oct 2018 Ideas for MICE Group in the Netherlands
1. Hiking & Nature in the Wadden Islands
Terschelling is the second largest of the West Frisian Islands. The oldest lighthouse in the Netherlands, the Brandaris from 1594, welcomes visitors to the island. Good collaboration between humans and nature has resulted in a varied landscape that ranges from a shoreline to tidal marshes and forests.
Terschelling has various galleries and exhibition spaces and a wide range of restaurants and entertainment venues. During the Oerol Festival, Terschelling is transformed into one big stage for art forms like cabaret, singing and dancing and attracts thousands of visitors. Just like on Vlieland, the culinary specialty of Terschelling are cranberries.
At low tide, you can hike across the bottom of the Wadden Sea. You should always go on a guided tour because this hike is not without risks. The sea bottom consists of sandbanks, mud and sand flats that harbor a great variety of birds, plants and fish. If you are lucky, you will even spot seals frolicking on the sandbanks. A wonderful and unique experience!
Combine your MICE event with nature, calmness and get the best result.
