In one of our unique experiences in the Netherlands, we are travelling to the beautiful island Texel. This North Holland island is the largest of the five Wadden islands and offers a diverse landscape in addition to the beautiful beaches around the island. It is easy to travel to from the Randstad and is known as the most versatile of the five islands.
We leave by ferry at 9:30 from the mainland in the naval capital of Den Helder and are at the quay on Texel at 10 am. After we get our bikes we leave for a short stop at the hotel. Immediately afterwards we start with a bike ride across the island to explore it all. After this first bike ride, we take an extended break around lunchtime to recover a bit from the first impressions. Lunch is included. After lunch in the afternoon, we get ready to take a 1.5-hour boat trip around the island. On the way we see seals and we sail along with the most beautiful spots of ‘t Wad.
The next morning starts with a beach walk along and through the sea and we get an extensive lecture about the role of the Wadden Sea. The afternoon is again dedicated to the bike and we have a gastronomic tour around the island and we only taste real local products. We visit the cheese factory, eat ice cream and drink the most famous export product: Texel’s speciality beer. After the Food Tour, there is still some private time until the early evening to sail back around 7 pm! Arrival Den Helder: 19.30.
