Lemmer-Tjeukemeer is an area rich in water with well-known lakes such as the ‘IJsselmeer’, ‘Tjeukemeer’ and ‘Groote Brekken’. They are suitable for all types of water recreation and fishing sports and this makes the region a unique place in the Netherlands.

Water sports activities, from the construction and hiring out of the smallest fishing boats to large seaworthy yachts, are concentrated in Lemmer and Echtenerbrug - ­Delfstrahuizen, twin villages on the sailing route from Friesland to North West Overijssel. The region is all the more attractive due to the surrounding wooded areas of ‘Gaasterland’ and ‘Kuinderbos’, cycling paths on and along ancient and new sea dykes to Urk and Kuinre.
