That is the Bargerveen, in the Veenland nature reserve. A small but special remnant of the once 300.000 hectare Boertanger swamp. In the past, more than half of our country was covered with raised moors. Almost all of this has been excavated for peat extraction.

The peat is alive here again. Just like almost 300 bird species, about 40 species of dragonflies, 30 species of butterflies and almost 900 species of moths. You will also encounter vipers and carnivorous plants!
