Unique Texel

Typical Texel

A holiday on Texel is one big voyage of discovery. Experience that real Texel feeling in the island’s varied landscape, but also in typical Texel activities and Texel flavours. Come and discover Texel’s wonderful, unique charms!

Enjoy a relaxing wool bath

A wool bath is a bath of pure Texel wool. There is something incredibly relaxing about being wrapped in 100% Texel sheep’s wool ... The warmth is good for muscles and joints and helps release toxins. The lanolin in the wool has a healing effect and leaves your skin feeling wonderfully soft. In short, this is wellness Texel style.
