Cycling around Bakkeveen


"A centuries-old landscape with forests and hedgerows, moors and meadows, marshes and winding streams."

The landscape

The green village of Bakkeveen is located in the middle of the beautiful region Friese Wouden. The Frisian Woods are situated on relatively high sandy soils and are characterized by a varied bocage with beautiful forests, hedged banks, moors, grasslands and meandering streams. Special are the pingo ruins from the ice age, the boulder clay in the subsoil, the peatlands and the small-scale countrylands surrounded by alder banks and hedged banks. The many characteristic farmhouses and monumental buildings, but also the beautiful ancient churches complete the idyllic picture in the landscape. Especially the combination of these cultural-historical, natural and landscape elements makes the region a unique area in Europe.
