Earnewâld – Burgum | Section 10 of the Circular Route through the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden National Landscape conservation area

(18.5 km)

The last section of the Circular Route through the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden National Landscape starts in De Alde Feanen National Park. This unique nature reserve is a patchwork of lakes, peat pits, reed beds, rough grassland, thickets and swamp forests. After you leave De Alde Feanen National Park, the landscape closes in and you find yourself back in the hedgerow and woodland landscape where the route started.

Circular Route through the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden National Landscape conservation area

The combination of cultural history and natural elements makes the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden National Landscape conservation area unique in Europe. A network of walks covering 165 kilometres leads you through ancient landscapes where traces of the past dating back hundreds of years are still visible. Pingos formed in the Ice Age, boulder clay deposits in the subsoil, areas where peat formed and was cut and small-scale farmland enclosed by rows of alders and wooded banks. Today these trees that were planted to contain livestock and prevent sandy soil from being eroded, play an important role in preserving the unique biodiversity in the region. Local farmers are largely responsible for the maintenance of this unique hedgerow and woodland landscape that is probably one of Friesland’s best kept secrets.

It is possible to start anywhere along the 165 kilometres of the Circular Route through the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden National Landscape conservation area. The route is signposted with red and yellow trail markers and runs from the town of Burgum, through the Trynwâlden area to the villages of Damwâld, Kollum, Buitenpost, Oudega and Eastermar, eventually arriving back in Burgum.
