Urk, eat some delicious fish at the harbour
Urk is a lively and characteristic fishing village. Something you absolutely should experience. A former island. A picturesque village where you can still experience that island feeling with a walk through the maze of alleys in the old village centre, where every house is different. Surprising vistas, cosy squares, characteristic facade signs and the many elegant decorations with anchors and boats. A guide will take you along the most beautiful spots on a hike through the streets.
Whisper boating in Giethoorn
Discover Dutch Venice, Giethoorn and De Wieden nature reserve in a so-called whisper boat. These are open punter boats with a silent motor that is electrically driven. An electric boat is the ideal means of transport to explore the rustic surroundings AND it is also environmentally friendly! You are responsible for electrically sailing or controlling the whisper boat. You will receive an explanation in advance about the very easy to operate engine and the route to be sailed. Don’t worry, with the help of the detailed navigation card you will certainly find your way back.
Canoeing from Kalenberg through the Weerribben
The best way to explore this beautiful area is by water. There are places in Kalenberg where you can rent a kayak or canoe (including Café Restaurant de Weerribben). There are two routes that you can follow in the area. The Kalenberg route (8 km) and the Weerribben route (14 km). These routes will show you everything the Weerribben has to offer.
Hiking in Blokzijl
Blokzijl once lay by the Zuiderzee. The contours of the city's old ramparts are still clearly recognisable today.
You will walk along the Havenkolk with its merchant houses. You can visit the Grote Kerk with a model of the Seven Provinces of Michiel de Ruyter. Blokzijl is famous for its beautiful canals and gardens and not forgetting the statue of Kaatje.
Shopping in Bataviastad
Batavia Stad is located on Markermeer in Lelystad and for those who visit Batavia Stad you will see that there is plenty to do around it.
Stroll over the decks of the VOC ship Batavia on the Bataviawerf, dive into adventures on the seabed at Nieuw Land and find out everything about the reclamation of Flevoland or visit the ship-archaeological depot of the Cultural Heritage Agency. .
Relax on the beach of Lemmer
In the summer Lemmer is a busy and lovely place to stay. The water-rich village with its pleasant terraces, hotels and shops attracts many visitors. Lemster beach is a two-minute walk away; a vast sandy beach on the beautiful IJsselmeer. Wonderful to blow away those cobwebs or to sunbathe and swim in the afternoon.
