Transportation to Mandø

In the middle of the new Wadden Sea National Park lies an island that can only be reached at the low tide. The public road, Låningsvejen is raised above the seabed, but is still flooded twice every 24 hours by the tide. The road is traversable but only when you know the tidal table. The tractor busses invite another perspective, experience the Wadden Sea from the vantage point of a double-decker bus. The busses use Mandø Ebbevej, driving across the dry seabed, or sometimes even in the water - a unique experience.
