Sailing around Waterland van Friesland is enjoying the wind in your hair, the countryside and the friendly cities and villages where you can moor your boat. Either rent your own boat or hop on board a tour boat.
Wetterwille, that's what we call water fun in Southwest Friesland. On our Frisian lakes, experience the thrill of a tailwind on a sailing boat, sunbathing on an idyllic beach, cycling past waving reeds, fishing quietly or mooring your boat in a friendly harbour. The possibilities are endless. And what makes it even more special: all the Frisian lakes are connected to each other. Ideal for (longer) tours.
The largest lake in Friesland
The ideal spot for water sports enthusiasts looking for peace and quiet
Famous for the Sneekweek and more
Enclosed between the villages of Woudsend, Balk and Sloten
Take a dip from one of the islands in the Heegermeer lake
Beautiful stretch of lake connected to the IJsselmeer lake
Their numbers have grown each year and there are now more than one hundred: the MarBoei buoys of 'Marrekrite recreation' in the Frisian lakes. Most of the yellow and blue buoys can be found in Waterland van Friesland, and they always mark a very special spot in the middle of the water. Moor your boat at one of them to make it your own special place for a while. Away from all the hustle and bustle, surrounded by tranquillity and spaciousness. A source of inspiration that has been readily adopted by various poets.
