Borkum is my home island and a worthwhile destination at any time of year. I will show you the most beautiful paths and trails, beaches and dike sections. Let yourself be enchanted by the glowing sunset and the endless view over the sea.

We go on two day tours (Saturday and Sunday), one approx. 5 hours, the other approx. 6 hours (walking time, no breaks included). As Borkum can only be reached by ferry (and to a very limited extent by plane), we arrive on Friday evening and depart on Monday. This gives you the opportunity to spend a long weekend on the island and explore it on your own if you like.

The overnight stay will be at the youth hostel on Borkum, generally in shared rooms. If you book yourself, the youth hostel can also arrange for you to stay in a double or single room. Other accommodation options on Borkum usually require a longer booking period at this time of year. The youth hostel costs approx. EUR 50 per night in a shared room with full board. Ferry p.p. 50 EUR, there is a surcharge for using the catamaran.
