#1 - The Slufter Short Trail

easyYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(3)
Length: 2.3 mi • Est. 58 m
After a number of unsuccessful attempts in the 20th century to turn the Slufter into a polder, it was decided to let the area take its natural course. The area consists of a maze of creeks, which means that it is regularly flooded after heavy rain, but also that it is an excellent bird breeding area. This path takes you to the beach, and you will definitely see many birds along the way.Show more

As the largest island of the Wadden Islands, Texel is ideal for walking or cycling trips. In the west you come through dunes, in the east through the polders. At De Koog, the popular beach resort, you come through beautiful heathlands. You pass through nature reserves Ecomare and de Muy and De Slufter. The saline soils produce unique plants here.

The Eierlandse Duinen are a unique part of Texel. The dunes here are much older than those at De Muy and De Slufter. The dune grasslands and small bushes are an ideal area for birds, where the Eierlandse Duinen also owes its name from. Eierlandse Duinen literally translates to "egg country dunes". It is a good nesting area for seabirds. Many flowers bloom in this part of the Texel Dunes. Bird excursions to this part of Texel can be booked through the Texel Bird Information Center.

Texel is an ideal place for beautiful cycling routes. The paths are (semi-) paved and always good to cross by bike while on the one side you have spectacular views over the sea and on the other the dunes. This long route takes you all over the island of Texel, starting in De Koog. It's a long route, but with plenty of places to stop along the way. This route also makes some foothills to sights and viewpoints. Bicycles can be rented at various places in De Koog, for example at the VVV where they also have children's bicycles, tandems and electric bicycles available (https://www.texel.net/nl/over-texel/bedrijven/transport/fiets/fietsverhuur -de-koog).Show more
