Mudwalks on Texel

Do you want to walk across the mud flats on Texel? It is highly recommended! You can search for benthic creatures and maybe even spot a seal. We give you tips on the best way to walk across the mud flats on Texel.


In principle, you can always walk across the mud flats on Texel, but you have to keep an eye on the tides. Planning is therefore essential. A trip takes between 2 and 3 hours, so a good physical condition is useful. The mud flats are quite hard on Texel. This means that mudflat hiking is also suitable for children from about 10 years old. And the most important tip: wear good shoes.

Mudflat excursions

Are you not yet an experienced mudflat walker? Or are you not very familiar with the tides? Then it is wise to join one of the mudflat excursions. This is possible at Ecomare, Natuurmonumenten and TXGids.
