The Biesbosch is a river delta area with freshwater tides, fed by the rivers Rhine and Maas in The Netherlands. It consists of a network of river channels, from wide and deep to very narrow and shallow with swamps and willow forests in between. Today it is protected as a national park. At the end of October I went discovering the area with my packraft on an overnight trip. A canoe is the most famous water vessel to paddle through the area but I found that a packraft actually looks more ideal to go through the most narrow creeks when the tidal water drops. But still I got stuck in a small creek at low tide. I met a lot of wildlife, mainly water birds and raptors but also one big beaver. The Biesbosch is famous for its many beaver colonies. I’ll definitely return here as now I only paddled through a small part of the area. The Biesbosch is really recommended for those who love quiet nature and wildlife.
