This route takes you to the province of Overijssel. You will be sailing through very rugged nature, the Weerribben, “de Wieden” nature reserve. Magnificent also are the Kalenberger Grachten. En route you can moor in cosy towns such as Steenwijk and Blokzijl, where you can breathe the atmosphere of the old sea port. But we also recommend Heerenveen with its varied shopping precinct. It is definitely worth your effort spending the last night in this cosy place.
The South route is suitable for the experienced skipper. You will be sailing through many narrow canals and rivers, with locks and self-service bridges.
Experience is not required but will work to your advantage.
