The ferry that will take you to Terschelling departs from Harlingen. The port of Harlingen is easily accessible by car, but also by train: the train will take you all the way to the port.
Travelling by car
You can drive to the city of Harlingen by car. You can park your car here, or take your car to Terschelling by driving it onto the ferry. It is, however, quite expensive to take your car onto the ferry. Besides, it might be fun and easy to take your bicycle to Terschelling. If you do decide to take your car to the island, it might be practical to know that at our park, you can park your car next to your bungalow.
It is a very practical choice to take the train or the bus. The train runs all the way to the station of ‘Harlingen Haven’ (the port of Harlingen), and from there, the ferry is situated within walking distance. Please be aware that in Leeuwarden station, you are transferring from the NS (the Dutch Railways) onto a local rail transporter; please do not forget to check out from the NS-system and to check in to ‘Arriva’ with your public transportation pass.
You can also take the bus across the Afsluitdijk, the causeway running between the city of Den Oever and the village of Zurich in Friesland. This Q-liner drives regularly between the city of Alkmaar and Harlingen.
Travelling by bicycle
It might seem a somewhat strange suggestion, but it happens every year: people from all over the country travel to Terschelling by bicycle. This happened in days of old, and it is still a surprisingly frequent way of travelling. Are you planning to take your bicycle to Terschelling? You can take it with you on the ferry if you pay an extra fee, so you can explore Terschelling on your proper bicycle!
Transport at Terschelling
Once you arrive on the island, you can reach our park either by taxi, bus, or bicycle. If you decide to take the bus, you pay a small fee (check www.bus-terschelling.nl for the current price list). You can get off at bus stop ‘Westend’ (650 meter walk, you will encounter a sandy path on the way), or at bus stop ‘Halte Camping Cupido’ (900 meter walk).
You can rent a bicycle at the port. It is only a 5 kilometre bike ride, so you will reach our park in about 15 minutes. Every bicycle hire shop at the port will take your luggage to your accommodation for free, enabling you to take the scenic route by bicycle. Your holiday will start as soon as you get off the ferry! If you wish to make use of this luggage service when you leave the island, an employee of the bicycle hire shop will take your luggage to the ferry on the day of your departure (for free).
Travelling by car
When you reach the port, please turn right. Drive past the vessels, at the beginning of the main street. Keep following this main street. As you leave the village of West-Terschelling, you will drive uphill. As you drive along, you will see some houses and camping sites. Then, you reach open meadows. You are going to need to pay a little extra attention here.
Because not long after that (a couple of hundred meters away), you will start seeing the first houses on the side of the road again: you have reached the village of Hee. Do not take the first exit once you enter ‘Hee’, but take the second exit on your left. You will also see a sign with our park’s name and logo. We would like to recommend that you start driving a little more slowly as you enter the village of ‘Hee’; that way you will eventually see the sign on the side of the road. You can also follow the signs for ‘Camping Cupido’ or ‘Camping de Kooi’. From these camping sites, you need to take the first exit to the left (before the dune lake), and you can drive straight ahead until you reach our front door!
