Nature walk 1:

Northern Island with a view of the varied bird population This day trip is the perfect choice for every nature lover. You will meet one of the most beautiful river landscapes in our country. The day begins with a guided walk on the Northern Island, a nature reserve squeezed between the Scheldt, Rupel and Maritime Canal and a refuge for birds. The area is also grazed by Heck cattle. After your walk along small hiking trails and some ornithological discoveries (depending on the season) the guide will take you to the sea lock of Wintam, which you can see from up close.

Nature walk 2:

The surprising polders of Kruibeke This day trip is very instructive and varied. You are introduced to the new flood area in Kruibeke and get a great overview of all the works that have been carried out for the Sigma plan. Our enthusiastic guides take you on one fascinating walk through the beautiful nature reserve where we walk across the Scheldt embankments and beautiful hiking trails. Both foxes, deer and numerous other animals inhabit this beautiful nature reserve. The Waterfalls of Kruibeke are the summit of our trip!
