Even the journey with your dog to Juist begins relaxed. By car or by train you travel to Norddeich. From there you can either take the ferry or the plane across the Wadden Sea to the North Sea island of Juist.
Arrival with the dog by ferry to Juist
The journey begins in the port of Norddeich-Mole. At the ferry bridge 1 the ferry to Juist is waiting for you. The trip to the island takes about 90 minutes. The journey with the island ferry has the advantage for you and your dog that you are relatively relaxed on the way. Often you have a lot of space on the upper or lower deck for you. The ferry rocks quite little (compared to the fast ships), which is especially advantageous for nervous dogs.
The one-way fare for your dog is 8,60€ (No guarantee, as of 06/22/2023).
Please make sure that your dog has been to the toilet beforehand, that you have enough water for your four-legged friend and, if possible, remember to bring a blanket.
Arrival with the dog with the fast ferries to Juist
The fast ferries from Norddeich to Juist take about 30 to 45 minutes. So you can imagine that these ships are not quite relaxed on the road, but already quite accelerate. Depending on the prevailing weather and wave conditions, the ride can be quite noisy and sometimes a bit bumpy. Please consider before booking if such a trip in a rather small boat will stress your dog too much. Small dogs can sit on your lap, but larger dogs may feel too cramped. If you are unsure whether your dog is suitable for a trip with the speedboats to Juist, it is better to take the island ferry.
In any case, please make sure that your dog is well exercised and that you go to the toilet with your four-legged friend before the journey. Please also make sure that your dog drinks enough water before the trip.
If you travel with the Inselexpress from Norddeich to Juist (or vice versa of course), the ticket for your dog costs 5€ for a single trip.
The trip with the Töwerland-Express from Norddeich to Juist or vice versa is free of charge for your dog.
Arrival with your dog by plane to Juist
The planes take off from the airfield in Norden and fly about 7 minutes to the east end of Juist. You can transport your dog with the plane. Small dogs up to 12 kg cost 11€, larger dogs 22€. Larger dogs must be transported on the seats, so you will need to bring a seat blanket. Please also note that muzzling is mandatory throughout the flight.
If your dog is experienced in traveling and you trust him to cope in the small plane, there is nothing to stop him from traveling to Juist by plane. But always keep in mind that you have to walk 4 km from the airport to the village (in most cases). For this you can reserve an e-bike, walk or take a carriage.
