The ideal environment to discover from the water

By boat

Our spot is located on the Tolhuissluis, the connection between the Amstel, the Drecht and the Aar Canal. In combination with the various lakes in the area, such as the Langeraarse lakes, the Nieuwkoopse lakes, the Westeinder and the Braassemer lake, it is an ideal environment for water sports enthusiasts. 
The sloop rental is 200 meters away and you can surf, sail, water ski, SUP or enjoy a whisper boat on the lakes. In addition, it is even possible to empty the traps in the early morning with one of the last eel fishermen on the Westeinder lake. How fun is that?!
