A wonderful cycling landscape awaits you around the Frisian Akkrum. Here you drive through wide grasslands, along waterways and lakes. You will also pass through De Alde Feanen National Park.
The Alde Feanen is a unique nature reserve. In this low moor swamp of almost 4000 hectares you look out over lakes, ditches, reed beds and shrubs. You will find all stages of a well-developed swamp: from wide and open water to sheltered forests. The fish-rich waters attract many water and marsh birds. With a bit of luck you can see the rare purple heron or marsh harrier flying overhead. It is wonderfully quiet here. Take in all that natural beauty.
In the middle of the Alde Feanen you pass through the picturesque village of Earnewâld (Eernewoude in Dutch). It is not the only beautiful place on your route. You will also pass through characteristic villages such as Grouw, De Veenhoop and Nes. In the countryside you can enjoy endless views, the tranquility and sights such as regional farms. The route ends in Akkrum at Eetcafé Kromme Knilles. An authentic village café where you can enjoy a coffee and a delicious meal on the terrace.
NB! The ferry in this route only runs in a certain season, check the times in advance.
