The island of Texel offers a number of things to do and activities from walking and hiking to sailing and golfing. Walking holidays are becoming more and more popular, nowadays, and Texel does offer unlimited possibilities for hiking. Walk along dykes and pastures, through woods and dunes. With its rich flora and fauna, dense vegetation and unspoiled countryside, Texel is a real paradise for hikers. Except exploring of secret countryside paths, we admired the old historical villages with its inhabitants, which sometimes brought us to a different world compared to the busy and spoiled beach areas.

If wanderlust grips your spirit, forget about the tourist-laden beaches, the fancy hotels and the nightclubs. We took ourselves to the hiking trails of Texel and discovered the soul of the island. We noticed that the hiking paths were good of quality and therefore hiking the island is something which is possible to do for everybody! Just drive your car to a nice spot and stroll around. We did not stop hiking when the paths got difficult, because of little Iris (she was almost 1,5 years young at that time). She enjoyed herself, walked along and whenever she became tired she sat in a special bag at our backs and she also had the time of her life just looking around.
