De Alde Feanen National Park and the historic city of Leeuwarden: with this bike tour you can experience two highlights of Friesland in one trip! You can easily divide this route in two to have more time to explore these special places along the way.

Old Fens
Lakes, peat ponds, peat holes, quaking bogs, reed lands, barren lands, brushlands, shrubs, peat moss reed lands, blue grasslands, marsh marigold haylands and swamp forests: this low peat swamp is unprecedentedly varied.'De Oude Venen\\\' is a Natura 2000 area of approximately 23 square kilometers. Part of this is the Princenhof water area, which is home to no fewer than 450 species of plants and more than a hundred bird species.

This route is set up as two loops: so you actually cycle a figure eight. At the intersection you will find your starting point for this morning. Ideal if you prefer to drive the route in two parts. Leeuwarden, a beautiful old city, is on the program for the second part of the tour. This former royal city has historical ties with the royal family. You leave the city via the cycle path along the Pot Margin, a wonderfully green area.
