All kinds of boat trips depart from Texel onto the Wadden Sea. A seal watching trip, educational fishing trip, Razende Bol trip or trip to Vlieland. Which boat trip will you choose?
You can find plenty of hiking routes on our website and in our shop. For a brisk walk, choose Pieter Kikkert's Walking Route, which is no less than 18 kilometres. In May, the De Hoge Berg hiking trail (6.5 kilometres) is also lovely. With children, the hiking trail Children's route Climbing and Playing (2.7 kilometres) is highly recommended.
