Terherne Boat Rentals
Terherne is a small village in the Netherlands. It's known as the “Island in the Frisian Lakes.” It’s a charming place to visit if you’re traveling through this part of Europe. With a population of less than 1,000, it’s an off-the-beaten-path place to explore while in the Netherlands. There is only one road and two bridges that connect the island that Terherne is on to the mainland. It’s an hour and a half drive northeast of Amsterdam and connects by train at the nearby Akkrum train station.
The best time of year to visit Terherne is during the summer. Winters can be cold and dark in this part of the Netherlands, with heavy rainfall.

The spring in the Netherlands is also a gorgeous time to visit, especially when the tulips are blooming.
