While regular ferries service all the islands, there’s a much more adventurous – and greener – way to discover the Wadden Sea: Eilandhopper. Every summer, this sailing ferry takes passengers to hop across the islands and back again.
We’re discovering new epic experiences and beautiful green stays on every trip we take. On this page, we’ll share our favorite finds.
