Cycling in the Frisian Woods

Friesland is the proud owner of a new and large touristic route: The Frisian Woods Route. Whereas the ‘Eleven Cities’ tour largely runs through the ‘lake and town district’ in the west of the province, the Frisian Woods Route leads through the wood and windbreak scenery in the east, better known as the Frisian Woods. It features a blend of scenic landscapes typical of the two bordering provinces, Friesland and Drenthe. As much as the region may have seemed dreary in the days of yesteryear, today it has a wealth of scenic, well-kept landscapes where one can live and recreate in style.

The cycle route is 400 km long and subdivided into the northern and southern halves, each comprising 200 km. They are circular tours which start and finish in the same spot. The Bureau for Tourism Friesland Holland, the developer of the route and already an ‘Eleven Cities’ tour package specialist, offers numerous packages with or without luggage transport and breakdown service. The route leads past charming lodgings, historical settlements, museums that breathe life into yesteryear’s activities, attractions, nostalgic shops, ancient crafts and also farms. You cycle on sheltered paths and lanes through stunningly beautiful park and wetlands with multiple scenic views of sheltered villages and towns, nature areas, as well as meadows intersected by streams and demarcated by windbreaks. Characteristic of eastern Friesland’s park and wetlands is the nature-friendly way of things: there’s a plethora of greens in the shape of woods and meadows, snug homes and villages, small-scale recreation and agriculture, horses and cows dotting the meadows, but especially: warmth. Warmth which exudes from both the region and its inhabitants. For a tourist it takes no time at all to feel at home!
