De Alde Feanen National Park lies in the heart of Friesland. Small waterways, peat bogs, open lakes: the water in this natural region takes many forms. One moment you can be gazing across the vast grasslands and fields of swaying reeds, the next moment you can have the enchanting feeling of being in a swampy woodland straight out of a fairytale.
