Everglades National Park

Everglades Airboat Tour & Wildlife Show

A River of Grass

Part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1979 and home to many animal species that are unfortunately threatened with extinction. Over 350 different bird species can be admired on the 1.5 million hectare area. These include, for example, the only wild flamingos in the entire United States. In addition, there are over 40 species of mammals and 50 different species of reptiles in the Everglades.

Except for a few man-made structures, Everglades National Park has largely been preserved in its natural form. These facilities also include the four visitor centers spread over different corners of the park.

In the period between December and March you will meet the most tourists in the national park. At this time of year the climate is most attractive and mosquitoes are least active.

Do you want to visit the national park for more than just one day? Then you are cordially invited to camp at the officially designated campsites. From there you can also set off on the many hiking trails that run through the park.
