In terms of quality and variety, this hotel-sloop holiday is a virtually unbeatable holiday in the Netherlands.

All top destinations are within sailing distance of your bases in Sneek and Heeg.

For six nights you’ll stay in the luxurious 4-star Hotel Amicitia in the attractive and charming city Sneek, one of the ‘Eleven Cities’ and definitly worth a visit.

Heeg is internationally famous as an utterly charming watersport village at the Heegermeer with many sailing routes without bridges or locks, but with numerous restaurants with terraces at the water, small beaches and islands.

The easily manageable sloop, for which you do not need a sailing licence, affords you the opportunity to explore the holiday region of the Frisian Lakes via several sloop routes to numerous attractions, many of which are also for children!

The boat charters which are connected with Friesland Holland Tourist Information have fully equipped, well maintained and good technical conditioned boats. The sloops are inspected before each rental period.

The yacht charter gives you a full tank of fuel before you leave the harbor. Consumption is at your expense. Therefore, at the end of the rental period, the boat must be returned with a full fuel tank and water tank.
You can often refilll the tanks near or even at the charter base. The payment of gas should be arranged with the yacht charter.


Cleaning costst are included in the package price. However, clean up the garbage before you leave.

Sloop Holiday Guarantee

It does not happen very often that the weather is so bad that it is not save to go out by boat. If it does occur that sailing is not save during the sloop package for one or more days, the participants of the sloop can be taken by the shuttle bus of Friesland Holland:

  1. From the starting location to the first hotel
  2. From one hotel to other
  3. From the last hotel to the finish

In this way the sailors of the sloop can still enjoy their ending destination(s) at bad weather.

When the weather conditions are better, judged by Friesland Holland, the guests will be taken back to the location where the sloop is left behind, or the sloop will be sailed to a location from which the bookers can continue their trip. You can only take out the sloop guarantee insurance at the moment you book the holiday package, at a minimum of three weeks in advance before the sailing trip. This deal cannot be taken in combination with last-minutes. This offered insurance of Friesland Holland Assistance (shuttle service and skipper) costs €195,- per sloop package, booked a minimum of three weeks in advance before the trip starts.

If you have not taken the sloop vacation guarantee, or you booked it too late, and you want to make use of this during your sloop package, you will pay €295,- per day. In fact this is not so expensive as two persons come in action: a private driver and a private skipper.
Get a guarantee or not, when you are in doubt about the safety always contact the Friesland Holland Travel Service: 0031 (0)561 615 364
