Terschelling is ideally suited for a longer or shorter stay with children. It is close by, so you do not have to drive far, and yet it feels like you are far from home. The crossing with the boat is already a great experience for children and once they arrive on the island there is plenty to do and discover.
During the summer season the Forestry Commission organizes regular excursions especially for children. More information can be found in the information paper De Sjouw and can be obtained at VVV Terschelling.
To the animals
Crazy about pony riding? That is possible at 'De Prairie' in Formerum. There are also several sheep cheese farms with viewing afternoons on the island. Donkey rides especially for the children can be done at Puur Terschelling in Oosterend.
Short covered wagon trips are very suitable for children and are offered by all the covered wagon companies on the island. Of course there are many special activities for children, like going to the Wadden Sea with the Waddenvereniging.
