Friesland is unique in many ways. With regard to surface area, it is number four among the Dutch provinces. In some of its towns and villages time seems to have stopped: Historical buildings, small brick houses with ornamental gables and channels wherever you turn your eyes.
Aquatics enthousiasts consider this beautiful province THE paradise of aquatic sports. In view of the fine mesh of its waterways and lakes (totalling a shorelength of more than 400 miles), this is no surprise.
The Frisian countryside is equally varied: Vast green pastures up north - water, woods, meadows in the south-west corner - and in the south-east moorlands mostly, with the very specific fauna and flora of the heath. While idling along canals you can enjoy the wijdse uitzicht, the black-and-white cattle, the beautiful Frisian thoroughbreds and the lovely villages. You can visit historic towns, amble along in the woods, go fishing, swimming or surfing - all this is within reach when boating in Friesland.
