Full description
About one-third of Texel is a protected nature reserve and the ideal island for anyone wanting to get out and about on an e-bike. The island was created by a catastrophic flood in the Netherlands that took place in 1170. Nowadays, the island shields the mudflat region of the Wadden Sea from the North Sea. Depending on which tour option you select, begin this excursion with pickup at either your hotel in Amsterdam or your hotel anywhere in the province of North Holland. As you make your way to the top of the province of North Holland (from Amsterdam it's a 2-hour journey including ferry crossing), watch the flat Dutch landscapes pass by as your friendly and professional guide shares interesting information about The Netherlands with you. From Den Helder, you'll take the ferry to Texel, crossing the Wadden Sea. Upon arrival on the island, the e-bikes will be waiting for you. The cycling route of around 2 hours covers the southern part of the island, the landscape behind the Wadden Sea Dyke and National Park Dunes. You'll also make a stop at the picturesque village of Den Burg. The route leads to a farmhouse dating back to 1684. Here you'll enjoy a typical Texel's pancake (try it with the famous Texel's sheep cheese, or any other topping). Then, it’s time to drop off the e-bikes, board the ferry, and drive back to your original pickup location.
