Wadden Sea Lamb Festival

June 1. - 15. 2017

The taste of  Wadden Sea lambs from South West Denmark are, according to experts, one of the world's best.

Now they have their own festival, reaching from Tønder to Varde.


From June to September

The seal is the biggest predator in the Wadden Sea National Park and here you find a large population of common seal. On board the former fishing boat Rosa Paluka we have great possibilities to get close to the sandbanks without disturbing the seals when they rest. This tour will give you a unique perspective on the conditions in one of the world’s most important tidal areas.

Black Sun

From August to September

Black Sun is a magical natural phenomenon when thousands of starlings shape-shift and dance at the evening sky. Flocks of starlings spending their days searching for food in the marshland and Wadden Sea area. At sunset the starlings gather to roost knowing that it’s a matter of life and death when hungry predator birds set in an attack.
