Boating in Friesland
Are you planning a boating trip just for the two of you, for the family or for a group of friends? One thing is certain: with a motorboat of Centerpoint Charters you will experience an unique boating holiday.
You start your holiday afloat in Heeg, a beautiful and historical town in the middle of Friesland with lively city centre. Starting here you can really turn in any direction. Going for the lakes for swimming, fishing, rowing, sunbathing or surfing. Or choose the "Elfsteden (eleven Frisian towns) Tour" full of culture and nature.
Travellers looking for quietness will cast for Princenhof near Eernewoude. In the past this was a peat cutting area, and what remained is a gorgeous nature resurve with rare plant and animal species. Or what about a visit to the woods of Gaasterland or the reedlands of Overijssel – shortly: an enormous diversity of landscapes to see.
Cruising with a motor yacht already is kind of an adventure, but have a look at what you might see as well: a brigde keeper with a wooden shoe (to collect bridge tolls), a harbour master who helps when mooring and a heron standing nearby hoping to get some fish. Having a barbecue on a uninhabited island, laze around with a nice book, moore in one of the small towns and go shopping, having a drink on one of the invitating terraces at the waterfront...
..come to Friesland and discover for yourself how the most multifaceted holiday looks like!
