Biesbosch National Park
Winding gullies, deep creeks and fields of reeds
Werkendam - The Biesbosch National Park is an extensive area of freshwater tidal wetland and is a maze of winding gullies, rivers, creeks, islands and fields of reeds. Visitors can explore the park on foot or by boat and watch wide range of plants and birds. Our tip: rent a canoe or a 'sloep' (small motorboat).
