Friesland has been a well known holiday destination for years now. Because of the many lakes, canals and the cozy cities and villages near the water and the many activities, Friesland is inviting itself to be discovered by boat. Now when spring comes and nature is awakening from its hibernation, that is the moment when watersporters get Goosebumps to get onto the water again.
