Welcome to Frisia

Welcome, great that you found us! Below is all the information we think you might want to know about Kayaking at Frisia, but make sure to e-mail us at if you have any questions!

Frisia is a Kayaking club that has been founded in 1948. At that time it consisted of just a handfull of people but over the years it has grown into a club with more than one hundred active members.

One of the reasons for this success must be Frisia’s location. The ‘Amsterdamse Bos’ is ideal for kayaking. But that’s not all. At a few peddle strokes away you can enjoy kayaking on the ‘Bosbaan’, the Ringvaart, the ‘Nieuwe Meer’, the ‘Poel’ or even on the canals in Amsterdam!

De Bosbaan


The clubhouse is located in a beautiful spot right on the water of the ‘Amsterdamse Bos’ and is equipped with extensive kayak storage facilities, large changing rooms and showers.

In addition, we have a well-equipped gym and kayak ergometers. So you can stay fit during the winter period. Finally, you can always cool off at Frisia with a drink at the bar or share your stories during a game of pool.

Here is how you can join us!

Frisia welcomes everybody that would like to start or continue their kayaking journey. You can easily become a member by using our online registration form.
