The Frisian lakes: so much more to discover

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.
