Heerenveen - Aldeboarn | Koningspad XL Hiking Trail Network: Section 12

21.7 km

This route takes you from Heerenveen, the principal town in the municipality of Heerenveen, to the village of Aldeboarn, which was once the main village in the De Boarn stream valley. Aldeboarn was strategically situated on the banks of the De Boarn river and dates back to the early Middle Ages. Heerenveen was originally established as a base for a commercial peat mining operation and played an important role supplying fuel to Utrecht and Holland. There is an old saying, ‘Zonder Friese turf geen Gouden Eeuw’ – without Frisian turf, the Dutch would not have had a Golden Age.

The 14 sections of the Koningspad XL Hiking Trail Network take you past the highlights of the Koningsdiep stream valley. A journey through meadows, heaths and the open landscape of Friesland.
