Oerol is a holiday and a festival in one – here are a few tips for handy things to bring along to make the Oerol experience even more enjoyable – particularly those heroes who will be camping:
Oerol always takes place on Terschelling (the island off the northern coast of the Netherlands, between Vlieland and Ameland). It is reached by boat from Harlingen Haven, which you can get to by car, bus, the special festival bus or train. From Harlingen Haven, you take the ferry operated by Rederij Doeksen – you will need to reserve a place on the boat at www.rederijdoeksen.nl. Tip: book early, as the boats fill up quickly.
There is a bus service at Oerol, almost everything is also within walking distance, but we advise renting a bicycle – another good tip is to do this in advance too. Another handy tip: decorate your bike with something easily recognisable, because there will be a lot of people at Oerol riding rented bikes just like yours.
The island has a lot of places to stay. You can sleep in a Bed & Breakfast, a hotel, a hostel, or on a campsite, etc. For more information on the possibilities, it is best to contact VVV Terschelling. Terschelling gets very busy during Oerol, so book your accommodation in advance. However romantic sleeping in the dunes might sound, Terschelling can get very cold at night, and that sand really does get everywhere.
Here is a list of various campsites that are suitable for small tents:
See you at Oerol!
