HOW TO GO THERE.....

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......


LEAVING THE PLANE.....

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: eden_teuling@vtmail.com


THERE IS MORE THAN THE PARACENTRUM.....

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....

The beaches e.g. and the wonderful villages and....all you can do there to have a wonderful holiday.

A few SUGGESTIONS :

***rent a bike: there are 125 km. of special touristic cycle paths and at the Tourist Office they have special ROUTES for you to cycle: ask them!

***buy a Texel Museum Ticket which will allow you access to 5 museums, ask at the Tiourist Office where they sell them!

***get to know Real Texel Products, buy a PRODUCTS PACKAGE and you wil get to know: special drinks, cheese, cake, fish products, lamb meat and sheep milk soap and the well known WOOLLEN DUVETS and more...

***a THEATRE PACKAGE...

***a KIDS PACKAGE...

***a NATURALLY TEXEL PACKAGE...

***a GOLF PACKAGE...

***even outside the summer months Texel has a lot to offer. How about a walk along the beach on a blustery day? Forget your daily care, breathe the seawind into your lungs, let it play with your hair and let this all be followed with a warming drink in a cosy beach pavollion....a nice off-season-PACKAGE...

By now you must already be WANTING TO GO TEXEL....

    Great page ... what can I say, but "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah" (falling from a plane) - hahaha. Oh, als onze drill sergeant toen (in dienst) niet had tegen gewerkt ... Groetjes, Paul
