Bolswarder Trekvaart
turns off towards southwest between Leeuwarden and Dronrijp, after the town of Bolsward, it becomes the
Trekvaart van Workum naar Bolsward (Trekvaart of Workum).
At the old town of Workum, the canal flows into the Ijsselmeer. Dimensions of structures don’t allow any professional traffic; it is therefore a quiet and comfortable “vaart”. One will probably meet more grazing cattle than people.

Places along the canal:

Easterlittens, Bolsward, Workum
