This pristine, watery nature preserve on the newly (well, 40s to 80s) reclaimed-from-the-sea Flevoland province was allowed to develop without any direction or interference. It’s now home to flocks of four-legged creatures, including wild horses, deer, foxes, and more. Alas, this nature here is so well preserved that visits outside a 5-kilometer trail around the visitor’s center (on the Knardijk) are by guided (boat) tour only.
