Eleven Towns Tour: the finest and most booked cycling package in the Netherlands!

It’s not a race, it’s a pleasure! Speed plays a major role in many Elfsteden tours. For the stressed participants it is a question of getting their heads down and riding hard. Such events allow little or no time to visit the places of interest along the route, or take a siesta on the sea dike. The Friesland Holland tourist office in Wolvega has developed a special cycling tour for all those who want to stop and enjoy the sophisticated Frisian cuisine, visit the region’s famous and not-so-famous cultural treasures and admire the variety in landscape. The point of departure for the tour was quality and originality from start to finish.

Unique in a number of ways
During the cycling tour, which covers a distance of approximately 250 km, you will have plenty of time each day to enjoy the most attractive spots in the Frisian landscape and to visit a number of must-see places of cultural-historical interest. Another unique aspect of the tour is that you stay overnight in a range of accommodation types such as newly renovated and restored hotels or guesthoueses where you can still feel the atmosphere of years ago, authentic city town and country guesthouses with quality rooms. Wherever you are, you can expect to be served an original and delicious breakfast. You will find yourself pleasantly surprised each and every day!
