“I love the silence, the nature, the smell of the sea and the beautiful views. I really enjoyed walking around here!”

I was walking around with a friend in this beautiful National Park Dunes of Texel when suddenly a herd of wild horses crossed our path. A few foals were dancing and jumping around while the mares of the herd came closer and closer. One of the horses was standing in front of me, she was so close I could touch her. A few minutes later the herd was gone, it was such a magical moment.

Just take a trip through this dunes on the west side of Texel, it’s so beautiful. You will be amazed at how many different landscapes you will pass. Dunes, woodlands, heaths, salt marshes and beaches together form the Dunes of Texel National Park. The diversity of animal species you can spot here is fantastic!

Tip: never ever walk towards these animals by yourself, but if they want to say hello… What else could I do than smile?
