Our weekend trip to Friesland was magical as it included releasing seals back into the wild (technically starting in Groningen, but we sailed into Frisian water), taking a boat tour to the UNESCO world heritage site of the Wadden Sea, enjoying the sandbanks/views of the Frisian islands, and exploring the traditional polder landscape of Friesland as well as the cute cities of Friesland.
For those seeking an ethical animal experience to add to their travel bucket list, releasing wild seals back in the wild is a must. If you're looking for the best activities to do in the Netherlands, I definitely rank this responsible tourism do as one of my favorite memories.
(Thank you to my friends and colleagues who took the time to give me advice on what to do in Friesland and making this post-wedding weekend so perfect.)
