On the main land2019-03-14T13:19:12+00:00
The boat2019-03-14T13:22:24+00:00

Book your boat trip through our partner Rederij Doeksen. Enough boats sail, but crossings on specific days and times can fill up. There is no parking area on Terschelling, so leave your car in Harlingen. Are you coming with a camper van? We advise you to book your boat crossing before 1 May, because there is only limited space for large vehicles.

Two pieces of luggage can be taken on board for free, provided that they fall within the specified dimensions mentioned on the Doeksen website. You can take one means of transport (folding bike, bicycle trailer or trolley) per person. You can make your trip more comfortable by booking a pre-set tent or bungalow!

On the island2019-07-04T10:53:06+00:00

A shuttle bus service runs from the port to the festival grounds, campsites and bungalows. Do you wish to transport yourself in another way? Rent a bike from the various rental companies next to the harbour or use a taxi.
