Relax in all seasons? Then come for a walk on Texel! The Van der Valk Hotel on Texel, located next to one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Netherlands, is the perfect starting point to discover one of the beautiful walking routes on Texel. Explore the beautiful nature in the adjacent nature reserve of the Dunes of Texel National Park. Take a long or short walking route on Texel and stroll for hours through the dunes or take the kids into De Dennen. Other areas on the island also invite for a brisk walk, such as the Slufter valley and the Krimbos in the north.


What could be nicer than diving into a lovely bed on the island after a long walk on the beach, through the dunes and the forest on Texel?! We offer various packages to make your walking holiday even more enjoyable. For example, consider the 3=2 arrangement; this package consists of three nights including breakfast based on 2 persons, but you only pay for 2 nights including breakfast. Free use of the sauna, free parking and use of the WiFi network are also included in the package. A day longer free walking on Texel!


The island has a wide choice of walking routes, but you can of course also set out on your own, without a route. A large part of Texel's nature is located in the Dunes of Texel National Park. Nowhere in the Netherlands will you find so many different landscapes in such a limited area. The area on the west side of the island has dunes, wet dune valleys, a varied pine and deciduous forest, salt marshes and heaths. In National Park Duinen van Texel there are many signposted routes that are indicated by posts with a colored head. Each color has its own meaning:

Yellow = through route
Blue = circular walk
Red = nature trail
Green = access only outside the breeding season

At the starting points of the walks, often at a parking lot, there are information boards that also indicate the length of the routes. You will also find trays with information leaflets here.
