Woudweeren route

With its numerous peaceful canals and elongated peat ponds, Waterland-East is an ideal area for canoeing. You paddle past flowery outer marshes and wide reed beds where typical reed birds like the warbler, large and small reed warbler can be heard singing at the top of their voices. Seen from the water, in the characteristic villages you have a wonderful view of the colourful wooden houses painted in their Waterland colours. The route is marked by wooden posts with a white coloured tip.
