Friesland has many lakes and canals. It is ideal for sailing, canoeing or other water sports. The region is ideally suited to explore by boat because it’s one of the biggest areas of inland lakes in Europe. Along the way, you will discover typical Frisian villages and towns with amazing facilities. Perhaps you'll get the buzz and become a real water sports enthusiast.
Leave everything behind and become one with nature. On the way to the islands you can watch the seals in the distance lying on sandbanks enjoying the sun, while seagulls fly through the air.
Enjoy silence and space on the Dutch Wadden Islands, each with its own unique atmosphere. Go bicycling through dunes or take a walk along the endless beaches.
Signs of the rich trading history and early seafaring are evident everywhere in the Eleven Cities of Fryslân, each of which has its own unique charm. The cities vary in size: Sloten has 900 inhabitants, while Leeuwarden, the capital, has 90.000. That’s why it’s such an experience to visit every one of the Eleven Cities.
Wading through the mud-flats or cycling through fields of flowers. Experience the pure nature of Fryslân! Unique routes guide you through the four national parks of Fryslân. If you enjoy walking, horse-riding, sailing or cycling trips, you can follow your own routes with help of the special ‘bicycles route network’ (‘fietsroutenetwerk’) in Fryslân. Take a breath of fresh air on ‘The Dike’ (‘Afsluitdijk’). There are a lot of possibilities to discover yourself in Fryslân.
