This area is lovely open marshland. It is good to explore for the local wildlife. Cycling is fabulous with quiet roads and trails. Boating would be good, if you have time

This park is a blessing after leaving Giethoorn and its hordes of tourists. If you have the time, consider biking through the park, having a picnic and relax, while you enjoy the nature.

We rented a boat to visit Giethoorn, but we have been advised by the boy from the rental boat company to visit the park and it was just great. It was a great tour and we loved the view from the tower.

We rented a kayak at De Kluft Recreatiecentrum for two adults. Nice people and easy going. They also provide a map of which canals are suitable and which are to be avoided. This comes in very handy if you're not so fond of getting lost......More

Took a two-hour boat trip through the town of Giethoorn and the Park. It was Euro 10 very well spent. An excellent tour through a fascinating area. We had an excellent guide, Wim, from the Restaurant de Rietstulp in Giethoorn.

We visited the parc by bike and realized that you do not need a boat to get a nice impression of the parc. The parc can also be visited by bike.
