There’s nothing wrong with jumping in your car for a quick trip from Amsterdam to Holwerd. But you don’t have to do that in Friesland. It’s an area made for biking and walking. No mountains to face, no drops for taking your foot off the gas. There are winding paths through thirteen different landscapes and over rolling dikes. Watch out for the sheep when cycling over the dikes. They maintain our dikes but don’t take their fellow road users into consideration.
Mention Friesland, and you think of the Elfstedentocht. But did you know that you can also travel the ‘tour of all tours’ on a lovely summer day? Below is a selection of Elfstedentochten that you can do on foot or with the bike, car, motorcycle, kayak or boat. Have fun!
