Friesland has many places where you can relax during your holiday, but there’s also plenty to do so for the adventurer! Below you can read some tips.

Activities in Friesland

The Pitch & Putt course at Esonstad features golf that is a cross between midget golf and “real” golf. This is an 18-hole course that is free to use and enjoy by all-comers from the age of 8 years old. Want more active? Foot Golf is also possible.

Bamboekstieken. This is actually vaulting with bamboo sticks. Confused? Just try it at the Outdoor Veldboom in Earnewâld. You can also play bubble football, take part in archery, crate stacking, Highland games or recreate the Robinson expedition.

Those of you that enjoy fishing can collect a fishing rod at the Lauwersmeer. However, it’s always important that you catch something. The Lauwersmeer is home to bream, roach, zander, trout and of course, the wind. Above all, the lake has sea trout once again. It’s difficult to fish from the shore of the Lauwersmeer, but you’ll find it a lot easier if you wear a pair of waders.  Excellent boat fishing can be had from the Vlinderbalg, the Oude Robbengat, at Oostmahorn and Lauwersoog. If you have your own boat, there are two slipways available free of charge at the Strandweg running along the Zoutkamperril. There are fishing boats to rent at the Jachthaven Lunegat (marina). If you would prefer to keep your feet on dry land, there is also a fishing pier.

Are you nimble and quick enough to avoid laser beams? Then you will love the challenge of the Mission Possible room, or go to battle during one of the laser games. No fear of heights? Then attempt the 15 metre climb at the climbing park with the longest zip wire in the Netherlands! Adventurers come looking for an injection of adrenaline in all types of weather at Aventoer!

Natuurlijk Kollumeroord provides an adventure for every member of the family, both young and old. Activities include canoeing, slides, smartphone games, mountain biking, as well as a variety of workshops featuring outside cooking, the game of djembé and natural photography.

The Lauwersmeer National Park attracts millions of birds. Accompany a guide in search of some magnificent examples of our feathered friends, or take a pair of binoculars to the top of one of the lookout towers.
