In the book I describe all the navigable waterways and these can be joined together in innumerable ways to create all sorts of cruising routes. In this section I give a few of my favourite routes and some of those popular with regular visitors to the Dutch waterways.

Each route has a brief description and a map so you can see an overview of where the route will take you, and on the map the recommended stopping places are highlighted. To find out more about each of the venues go to the Places section where you will find a more detailed map of that area, with information on moorings, facilities and attractions.
