By bike or moped
Texel is the perfect cycling island. Plenty of day-trippers head to Texel in good weather to explore it by bike. There are miles of cycle paths on the island. The paths run through forests and dunes, so that cycling takes you through all the nicest nature areas. Naturally you can also discover the best spots on the island on a moped. It’s easy, and cheap, to take your bike or moped with you to Texel on the ferry.
Boat information for bikes and mopeds
Cyclists and moped riders board through the terminal’s cycle entrance. You will be led to a special bicycle entrance on the ferry. Automatic sliding doors will let you ride to the other end of the boat. To reach the passenger deck and lounge, go up two floors. On the Dokter Wagemaker ferry this deck can also be reached with a lift.
