It's so captivating that many people spontaneously started composing poems about it.

Duration of the Route
With this nearly 100-kilometer route, you'll be on the water for several days. The MarBoeis are suitable for mooring, and you can stay for a maximum of 24 hours! Enjoy the tranquility on the water and hopefully a beautiful starry sky on a dark night!

Bridges in Friesland

Sustainable Boating
Need to refuel? Choose blue diesel. Or go out with an electric boat. Something tasty for the journey? Fine, but make sure empty packages don't blow overboard. And if you come across litter along the way, take it on board.

de boten houden zich stil tot het eiland hen gevonden heeft in hun dromen ontwerpen ze het land voelen hoe hun tenen het zand raken zien hoe een schildpad rechtsomkeert maakt in hun hoofd ontwaakt het vermoeden van een stad

Marboei MB62

Wurkskip is it wurd op ’e dronkene wetters fan de skommeljende Bombrek. Dêr’t it swurk tonger seit, hâldt de loft de duvelskoppen fan Breughel en Bosch. Seilen ride op ’e reiden, skowe as blauwe triangels troch pleats en mole.

Elke lege zak kan in een meer springen Maar alles wat je bezit is nodig om er weer uit te komen Het hangende zwarte water dat tussen je loodzware kleren kleeft en je ijlend onder dwingt

Marboei MB45

De man zei: ‘Weg daar!’ De vrouw dacht: touw bevestigen, daar is toch geen kunst aan? Toen hij naast haar stond, botste de boot onrustig op het water – alsof iemand steeds voor zijn beurt sprak, eigenlijk onhoudbaar was.

Far de feart mar út, krús de gleone tiidlinen – heechspanningskabels, autodyk oer wetterkym – peddeldichtsje dwers ûnder. Smeulsk wachtet de mar, it terra ynkognita fan dit útbiten en ynklonken feangreidlân.
