Canoeing the Drentsche Aa river

Yesterday we went canoeing on the Drentsche Aa, a winding river through the lovely idyllic countryside of Drenthe. The Drentsche Aa National landscape is a Dutch National Park, so access to navigating the river is limited to a maximum of ten people a day. We were lucky to have brilliant summer weather as we paddled for about 15 km. Though it took us about 5 hours, we hardly encountered any other people... A memorable experience in densely populated Holland!
