A forgotten beauty

Holiday cottage in winter

The winter months in Gaastmeer and surroundings are beautiful!

And with a bit of luck it has been cold enough to go ice-skating on frozen natural waters.

Walking and cycling

When the temperature really starts to fall, the Frisian landscapes change into beautiful white pearls. A pleasure to go cycling or walking through this area. Nice examples of these are the routes along the Oudegaaster Brekken towards Workum, or the other side through Heeg and IJlst towards Sneek.


Gaasterlandse Forest

In less than a half an hour drive You can find the largest forest in Friesland: the Gaasterland forest. A beautiful forest to walk through or explore by moutain bike. The forest is adjacent to the IJsselmeer and offers many beautiful streams, cliffs and deciduous forests. Here you can quickly see deer, goose or thorns! At the end of the forest You will find the "Mirnster Klif", a beautiful place at the IJsselmeer for a cup of coffee or hot chocolate milk.


Coziness in cities and villages

In the surrounding towns and villages there is also plenty to do during the winter months. Winterfair in Heeg, Lekker Sneek Winter edition, Christmas markets, cabaret and music in the theater, ice skating races in Thialf, etc, etc.

Geese spotting

The area of Gaastmeer is very popular with geese, but also with the "geesespotters". Regularly there are cars on the side of the road to take pictures of the massive group of geese that make a stopover in Friesland.


Ice skating in Friesland

Of course the weather has to be a little bit fresh and it must be really well frozen if we can ice skate on natural frozen water! Once it's possible, it's beautiful! You can put Your skates on Your feet in our harbour and make wonderful skating trips to Heeg, Workum and Hindeloopen. We are still hoping for an “elfstedentocht”!
