Water is the keyword of this walk because the Blankaart lies in the heart of the floodable Yser Valley. After all, the name Blankaart refers to "Standing Blank". The Blankaart pond is a remnant of former peat extraction. In the area you will pass bird watching huts, lookout towers and a viewing platform. Depending on the season, there are so many different birds to spot that you will forget the time.
