The ‘Oersetters’ is a fantastic ferryboat cycling trip which takes you around the Southwest Friesland National Landscape. In 2014, the ‘Oersetters’ was acclaimed the best ferryboat cycling trip of the Netherlands, by the ANWB and pedestrian ferryboat association.

The name refers to the two pedestrian and bike ferries which are part of this cycling trip around the Frisian Lakes region, and comes from the type of boat traditionally used to ferry people back and forth. These two ferry boats certainly give the trip a very special touch. If you’re looking to discover and experience the beautiful landscape of Southwest Friesland by bike, then this ‘Oersetters’ cycling route offers no end of opportunities. From cycling through the very diverse watery landscape of Southwest Friesland, you will suddenly find yourself in a village or a historic Frisian city, before continuing on your way past the wide-open panoramic fields of this Frisian land. The ‘Oersetters’ really is a voyage of discovery!

There is so much to see, and various picnic benches all along the route, though of course you can always pop into one of the many cafés and restaurants, some of them on the waterside. You can also charge your electric bike at various points along the route. 

Check the map for all stops along the way.
