Westfriesland is a unique part of The Netherlands that is completely surrounded by the century-old Circular Dike. In this rural area you will find a number of interesting historical towns such as Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Medemblik and Alkmaar.


Enjoy hours of walks and bike rides through the typical Dutch landscape with authentic villages and extensive meadows. Or how about cruising through ditches and canals with excellent spots for fishing or having a picnic.


On the lakes IJsselmeer and Markermeer you can practice different water sports or relax on one of the pleasant beaches. Also the North Sea coast with various sandy beaches is easy to reach.
