Every year during late spring to early summer you have a wonderful opportunity to see orchids in full bloom all around the Lauwersmeer National Park. The territory of the Park is interesting in its own right since it boasts to have Wadden Sea in the north and fresh water Lauwersmeer, which is, interestingly, a man-made lake formed in 1969. This means diverse flora and fauna. It is home to one of the rarest orchids - the musk orchid, and borders the provinces of Groningen and Friesland.
