Secrets of the night
Adventurous exploration of Texel’s dunes
Exciting stories in one of the Netherlands’ most beautiful dune regions. What more could you possibly wish for? The Staatsbosbeheer guide will take you on a fantastic hike through National Park Dunes of Texel. The tour starts at dusk, which means you’ll experience nature in an entirely different, extraordinary way. You will see different animals than during the day and your senses will be stimulated in an unusual way, with sounds seeming more intense and your sense of smell more acute than usual. If you are lucky, bats or owls may swoop over your head, so keep your ears open and your eyes peeled!
Tip! We highly recommend visiting Ecomare, a nature museum and seal refuge, beforehand. See the seals, porpoises and other animals from the sea. Or learn more about the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site, the North Sea, and the flora and fauna on the island of Texel. Your visit will be complete with a meal at one of the attractive beach pavilions. Not only will you enjoy the great food and drinks, but (in most cases) you’ll also be able to admire the fantastic view of the sea.
