BOAT RENTAL IN AND AROUND DRACHTEN
When you say Friesland, you naturally say water! Our province has many lakes, canals and other wetlands. If you visit our hotel, a boat trip is definitely recommended! Below you will find various options for an unforgettable boat trip, possibly in combination with a visit to Leeuwarden.
Rent a boat in Drachten
Of course you can rent a boat in Drachten. Several marinas (such as Bootverhuur Naut and De Drait) on the west side of Drachten offer boat rentals. For example, from Drachten you can sail to the Alde Feanen; a beautiful nature reserve to discover from the water. Also villages such as De Veenhoop and Grou are nice to visit. North of Drachten you will also find the Burgumer Mar and De Leien; beautiful lakes to sail on!
The Alde Feanen from the water
You can of course also choose to rent a boat from De Veenhoop or Eernewoude, so that you are right in De Alde Feanen National Park. At Camping It Wiid in Eernewoude you can rent different types of sloops, motor boats and falcons to discover the nature reserve De Alde Feanen. It is also possible to rent a sup or canoe here.
Learning to sail in Friesland
Prefer to undertake an active water sport activity? Sailing school De Veenhoop offers sailing courses from young to old! A fantastic experience and definitely recommended if you are in Friesland.
Rent a boat Leeuwarden
Would you like to combine your visit to Drachten with a visit to our provincial capital Leeuwarden? A good choice, in our opinion! This city breathes culture, art and atmosphere. You can also take wonderful boat trips here! At Bootverhuur Bonkevaart you can easily rent a comfortable, electric sloop, suitable for groups of up to 10 people! Sail through the canals of the center of Leeuwarden, the waters around Leeuwarden and discover the Groote Wielen, for example.
