Water-fun in FrieslandEach year during the summer, Friesland is under the spell of skûtsjesilen, a regatta between old Frisian freighters. An enormous spectacle you can view in Grou, Lemmer, and Sneek. Or even more fun: rent a boat and follow one of the sailing routes along the Frisian lakes. Be sure to visit the cosy water sports towns of Grou, Makkum, Joure and Sneek.
The Frisian IslandsTake gorgeous cycling and hiking trips or spend the day at the beach at one of the stunning Frisian islands. The impressive lighthouse in Hollum on Ameland is open for the public. The oldest lighthouse of the Netherlands can be found on Terschelling, an island of rich cultural heritage. The car-free island of Vlieland is perfect to explore on a bike or by foot. Bed and Breakfast Friesland also offers accommodations on these exciting islands.
Ice-skating in the Dutch WintersIf the winter is cold enough, the famous Dutch ice skating Elfstedentocht takes place in the province. The last Elfstedentocht already dates back to 1997 and each year, question rises whether a new edition will be held. Luckily, there are numerous other ways to explore the Frisian towns. The capital, Leeuwarden, has many museums, an abundance of restaurants and shops and also forms the starting point of the Elfstedentocht.
