Met de fiets op de boot VVV Texel

By bike or moped

As you probably already know, Texel is the ideal cycling island. Many day trippers go to the island in good weather to explore Texel by bicycle. Does that sound like a good plan? Then discover the many kilometers of cycle paths on the island. The cycle paths go through woods and dunes, so you cycle along the most beautiful nature reserves. Of course you can also explore the best spots on the island by moped. Take your bicycle or moped easily and cheaply on the ferry to Texel.

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 or Texelstroom ferry this deck can also be reached with a lift.
