The cycle route through the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden has a total length of 127 km. Genuine enthusiasts will want to complete the entire journey; however, it is, of course, possible to cycle it in stages. You just stop where and when you want. This extensive cycle tour follows a network of hedgerows, alders and rows of trees. You will cycle past grasslands and fertile fields. En route, you will see water holes, known as ‘pingo ruins’, that are thousands of years old. Isolated farms and a number of small villages are the only buildings in the Nationaal Landschap Noardlike Fryske Wâlden. It’s actually known as the most small-scale landscape in the Netherlands.
