The Zaanstreek region is best discovered from the water of the Zaan river.
Special marshy grasslands and industry, village-like and city-like atmosphere, modern architecture and heritage. The Zaanstreek has a lot to offer and enough water and greenery to discover all of this in an active way. From a stroll along the industrial heritage to enjoyable cycle routes and trips by boat.

The best way to discover the unique nature of Wormer- and Jisperveld is by canoe. That way you can paddle through a maze of peat meadow islands and find yourself surrounded by reed belts and unique species of flora and fauna.
Spot meadow birds like the black-tailed godwit and lapwing and discover rare plants such as orchids, sundew and silene.Map of canoe routes
