Erwin refers to himself as a creative adventurer and is happy to take you along on this sporty journey through the island’s beautiful natural surroundings. You will follow in Erwin’s footsteps because he walked this fat bike tour route in 2018 and visited all the beach posts on Schiermonnikoog. He guides you by bicycle through the dunes, over expansive beaches and along small paths in the salt marshes. Enjoy breathtaking views during this tour and listen to Erwin’s stories about his 2018 hike and the nature and culture of the island as part of the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site.
