Book your carefree sailing holiday
Smallingerland is one of the municipalities in Friesland. There are plenty of lakes where you can sail and explore the region. Most lakes are created by peat extraction. These are also the shallowest: the Alde Feanen near Eernewoude, the Leijen, the Bergumermeer. The Pikmeer near Grou even gets its name from a special type of peat, called Piek.
Other lakes, especially those in the southwest corner of Friesland, have been created by glaciers. As a result, the Fluessen and Het Heegermeer are deeper, about 1.50 m. Renting a motorboat in Friesland is easy because these ships do not have too much draft as standard and can, therefore, sail almost anywhere.
Many sailing routes in Friesland are also doable for less experienced tenants. With a rented Fox 22, a Tirion, or a Pointer 22, that is the best. You can sleep with two people on the Fox and Pointer. You can also rent a motorboat in many places in Friesland. Find the hustle and bustle of the Sneekweek on the Sneekermeer from Terherne (Terhorne). You can sail over the Slotermeer to Woudsend and from Heeg over the Heegermeer and the Fluessen. Moreover, you can sail on the IJsselmeer from Stavoren, Morra de Grote Brekken, Lemmer, the Tjeukemeer, or the Langweerder Wielen from Langweer. Many sailing yachts are rented on the Frisian side of the IJsselmeer. You can sail not only across the IJsselmeer but also to the Wadden Islands, for example. Stavoren, Hindeloopen, Makkum, are all on the Frisian side of the IJsselmeer, so sailing a short distance away.
