This route takes you through National Landscape Noardlike Fryske Wâlden. In this region you will find beautiful old villages and an ancient scenic landscape.

Frisian bocage landscape
Friesland, isn't that the province of mounds and lakes? Yes, but in the east you will still find a small-scale bocage landscape with alder canals, hedgerows and marshes. This landscape has remained intact for centuries, so it is a unique experience to cycle through. Especially because this region is also wonderfully quiet here. You will have no trouble forgetting the everyday hustle and bustle here and enjoying the beautiful Frisian countryside.

Frisian Juffertoren
In the hamlet of Buweklooster there is a Frisian bell chair that originally dates from 1558. In Gerkesklooster you can see the striking Reformed Church. This fifteenth-century building was originally a monastery brewery, but was converted into a church in 1629. The Antoniuskerk in Surhuizum originally dates from the thirteenth century, the spire is reminiscent of that of the Groningen Juffertorens. You will also pass the Koartwâld, a monumental flour mill from 1864.
