Located in the north of the Netherlands, Heerenveen is well-known for speed skating. This quiet town in the Friesland province bears the distinction of having the quickest low-speed skating rink in the world. Thus, it is a haven for sports enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies who wish to try their hand at indoor karting or ice skating. Sports buffs can also visit the Abe Lenstra Stadion, which is home to the SC Heerenveen football team. Mountain climbing enthusiasts can stop by the Mountain Network Heerenveen as well.
Those who prefer to stay indoors can visit Museum Belvedere in Oranjewoud which displays the artwork of Frisian painters. Alternatively, you can take a walk around the baroque gardens of the Museum Park. The magnificent old estate gardens and the Grand Canal are some of the must-see tourist spots as well. Take the De Proefvaart boat tour if you want to soak in the sights and sounds of Heerenveen and get acquainted with local food and culture.

Located in the midst of the Alde Feanen National Park on an island, this cozy, little cottage appears to be found in the middle of nowhere. It is built on a yard next to the owners’ farm and features a bedroom and a bathroom which can accommodate up to two guests. On top of that, guests will have access to a well-equipped kitchen, a sauna, and a big terrace. Basic amenities such as breakfast, free parking on the premises, heating, a TV, and toiletries are provided for. However, the house is situated in a remote location, and the nearest grocery store is 30 minutes away in a nearby town. Fret not though, the spectacular views and tranquility that the accommodation offers make up for the lack of shops in the area. It is the perfect locale to go hiking or biking in the Dutch countryside.
