Activities for the active island visitor
For the active island visitor, there is much to do on Terschelling! The island is ideal for discovering on foot or by bike. Within a day, you can see the whole island by bike. If you are looking for an adventurous activity, there are various options.
Horseback riding or a covered wagon ride
Discover our beautiful Wadden island on horseback! Because of the space and the quiet, Terschelling is very suitable for horseback riding. Take a beautiful ride through the woods or opt for a morning ride over the beach. Along the way, you ride through the dunes, along the famous cranberry fields and through the polder. This is a great way to discover the nature of the island. You can also take a covered wagon ride on Terschelling through the polder, over the mudflats and through the dunes. Several wagon routes have been mapped out. For more information about horseback riding or the covered wagon tours, please contact our reception.
Mudflat walking or mudflat canoeing
Experience the elements that make Terschelling so special. While mudflat walking, you will feel at one with nature. During this trip, you walk over the mudflats and via the salt marshes towards the Boschplaat. A unique trip through the untouched nature of the island, where you even have the chance to spot seals! Did you know that the Wadden Sea was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2009?
If you are looking for more action, mudflat canoeing is definitely something for you. The clear water provides a beautiful view of the bottom of the mudflats. Moreover, from the mudflats you can see the dunes where the Brandaris serves as a landmark, and that creates a unique picture!
