To reach TEXEL, one of our WADDEN ISLANDS ( we have 5 accessible WADDEN EILANDEN and 1 inaccessible one ) you have to board this FERRY for the 25 minute ride from DEN HELDER.
DEN HELDER is a lovely town in the most northerly part of the province of NOORD-HOLLAND, one of the 12 provinces we have .
It is a lovely place to discover the ISLAND FEELING , to see SEALS, to visit the 7 LOVELY villages, each with their own attractiveness....and attractions..
It is an island to enjoy the sun at one of the sandy beaches, to walk THE SLUFTER , a wonder of NATURE....
and last but not least : there is the famous PARACENTRUM TEXEL where you can go for (courses of) SKYDIVING .....more info about that in the tips.
I went there myself and can assure you that it is a GREAT SPORT , jumping out of a plane and see the island of Texel underneath you, with the surrounding sea, the villages, the sheep, the farms......and once you have landed you want to go back into the air to jump again and again......
And here I GO AGAIN....
There is a very nice, atmospheric PARACENTRUM and for who is IN for excitement, pleasure, the company of SOULMATES, good friends: this is THE place to go...
For MORE INFO SEE TIP & TRAVELOGUE and/or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Although I am very enthusiastic about SKYDIVING, I have to let you know that there is soooo much more to Texel than that JUMPING OUT OF PLANES....
