In the National Landscape Noardlike Fryske Wâlden you can enjoy wooded banks, alder canals, rows of trees, grassy grasslands and fertile fields. This route takes you through this landscape with here and there a lonely farm or a ribbon or es village. Relaxing should not be a problem in this wonderfully quiet area.

On the road between the farmlands
The starting point of this route is near the village of Eastermar. From here you will cycle past several lakes and small villages. The agricultural lands that you encounter along the way often have special and varied dimensions: from very narrow long plots to square pieces of land. Many of these grounds were laid out in the Middle Ages. In Sumar you can take a look at the De Hoop corn mill from 1867. You then cycle further over various extensive estates to Fogelsangh State, a former fortress that dates from 1646. A little further you will find the Botanical Garden De Kruidhof. Get off your bike here for a while and stroll through the seventeen beautiful themed gardens.

Nice breaks
Then you cycle through various villages back to the starting point of the route. Do you fancy a snack or a drink on the way? Then settle down at Kafee It Wapen Fan Fryslan or eat and drink at Paradiso Bar. Replenish your energy supply here and then get back on your bike.

A historic mill
On the last part of the route you can admire the mill De Mûnts in the village of Buitenpost. In 1871 the mill was placed in Oosterhoogebrug in connection with the construction of the Eems Canal. In 1952 a demolition permit was issued for the mill, which was bought by a private individual and had the ground sailer rebuilt on the current site. Then he also got his current name, which in Dutch means'The Monk\\\'.
