Rondje West-Friesland

A beautiful bike ride and along the way you will pick all the edible things that nature offers us and then bake delicious elderflower pancakes. This is possible during the ‘Rondje Westfriesland’ from Enkhuizen train station.

The best time to do this is September to November and May to June. The starting point of the route is Enkhuizen station (junction 30). This cycle route (completely paved) mostly follows the junction route network, with a few exceptions. See directions below.

Route description: Cycling through the characteristic landscape of West Friesland: through VOC towns, along orchards and over dikes.

A beautiful cycling route through the very tip of West Friesland; where the landscape is characterized by fruit orchards, village views over the meadows and of course its location on the Marker and IJsselmeer. This route extends between the characteristic VOC towns of Enkhuizen and Hoorn, where you first cycle through the small-scale landscape and then enjoy the view from the dike.
