Holiday homes Frisian lakes

Friesland is a province through and through

You can experience a wonderful holiday by the water from your holiday home on the Frisian lakes! A truly beautiful nature reserve in our own Netherlands.

The Frisian lakes are located in the center and southwest of Friesland. The area is very popular with tourists. During the summer months you will find many water sports enthusiasts here.

The most important lakes include the Sneekermeer, the Slotermeer, the Tjeukemeer, the Heegermeer and the Fluessen. But if you prefer to enjoy the IJsselmeer beach, book a nice holiday home in Lemmer.

If you are up for some action and adventure, you can go kite surfing on the IJsselmeer, water skiing or wakeboarding on the Fluessen, row to Terschelling or book a trip with a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat). Mudflat hiking or an exciting canoe trip in the middle of the night are also possible. If it doesn’t have to be that intense for you, you can also go sailing, book a boat trip or rent a boat yourself. It is also possible to book a holiday home on the Frisian lakes or a holiday home near the IJsselmeer , which has its own jetty. So you can bring your own boat or go fishing while enjoying the sun. Enjoy a cup of fresh coffee in the morning on the terrace of your holiday home on the Frisian lakes. Bring a picnic basket and then head out to discover the network of canals, canals and ditches. Friesland is still at its best from the water.

There are also interesting boat trips and excursions to book. This is the ideal way to explore Friesland! A nice example is one of the Eleven Cities Packages, where you (partially) travel the Eleven Cities Tour by boat. If you want to do something typically Frisian during your stay in a holiday home on the Frisian lakes, then you should definitely go sk├╗tsjesilen. Sk├╗tsjes are Frisian tjalks, ranging from 12 to 20 meters long, which were originally intended for Frisian freight transport. Nowadays, these sailing ships are used for sailing competitions. As you can see, there are endless possibilities in the field of water sports!

A holiday home on the Frisian lakes is also an excellent base for making fun trips. For example, have you ever been to the Wadden Islands? Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermonnikoog all belong to the province of Friesland. From the harbour in Harlingen you can take the ferry to Terschelling and Vlieland. Also some holiday homes in Harlingen and in Tzummarum on the Wadden Sea for rent.

Even if you have children, a holiday home on the Frisian lakes is a great holiday destination. It will be a great experience for your children to learn to sail or surf, for example. There are numerous lessons and courses offered especially for children. Take them on a real seal expedition on Terschelling or go kite flying on Schiermonnikoog for an afternoon. And if the weather is bad, you can take your children to Ballorig, the indoor play paradise in Heerenveen. In any case, they will not be bored during a stay in a holiday home on the Frisian lakes!
