Randmeren van Flevoland (Drontermeer / Veluwemeer / Wolderwijd / Nuldernauw / Nijkerkernauw / Eemmeer / Gooimeer
This is probably the most attractive leisure area for the people of Amsterdam, with many camping places and well equipped marinas. Because of the strong winds, it’s also a paradise for surfers and sailors.
Unfortunately, one can’t always count on a landing stage in high season.

This is the longest “vaart” in Flevoland, since a few years it’s connected with the Ijsselmeer over the new lock of von De Blocq van Kuffeler. It is, just like the other connections in Flevoland, a bit dull over long stretches.
