Cycling in the Frisian Woods

Friesland is the proud owner of a new and large touristic route: The Frisian Woods Route. Whereas the ‘Eleven Cities’ tour largely runs through the ‘lake and town district’ in the west of the province, the Frisian Woods Route leads through the wood and windbreak scenery in the east, better known as the Frisian Woods. It features a blend of scenic landscapes typical of the two bordering provinces, Friesland and Drenthe. As much as the region may have seemed dreary in the days of yesteryear, today it has a wealth of scenic well-kept landscapes where one can live and recreate in style.

The cycle route is 400 km long and subdivided into the northern and southern halves, each comprising 200 km. They are circular tours which start and finish in the same spot. The Bureau for Tourism Friesland Holland, the developer of the route and already an ‘Eleven Cities’ tour package specialist, offers numerous packages with or without luggage transport and breakdown service. The route leads past charming lodgings, historical settlements, museums that breathe life into yesteryear’s activities, attractions, nostalgic shops, ancient crafts and also farms. You cycle on sheltered paths and lanes through stunningly beautiful parks and wetlands with multiple scenic views of sheltered villages and towns, nature areas, as well as meadows intersected by streams and demarcated by windbreaks. Characteristic of eastern Friesland’s parks and wetlands is the nature-friendly way of things: there’s a plethora of greens in the shape of woods and meadows, snug homes and villages, small-scale recreation and agriculture, horses and cows dotting the meadows, but especially: warmth. Warmth which exudes from both the region and its inhabitants. For a tourist it takes no time at all to feel at home!

This package starts in Oosterwolde. For two nights you will stay in Hotel de Zon and cycle a different route each day. On day three you’ll take your car to get to Heerenveen. The next two days you’ll be cycling different loops in the Frisian Woods.

Mobility Guarantee

The mobility guarantee has been included in the price of every Friesland Holland cycling package. With this unique service you will be insured in Friesland, with the exception of the islands, of a replacement vehicle. This is if the bike breaks down or if you had an accident with your own bicycle or rented bike and this cannot be restored at that place or at a bicycle repair specialist nearby within 1 hour. You will receive an excellent replacement bicycle with 7 gears and cyclebags or you will be taken by the Friesland Holland Assistance car to your ending destination of that day, no costs involved. The Friesland Holland Assistance car is able to take your bike to a bicycle repair shop in the neighbourhood near the lodging address if you wish. The costs of repairing the bike are for your own expense. Friesland Holland Assistance helps you to continue your trip in Friesland. The service is provided from the 1st of April until the 1st of October, 7 days a week, from 10 am until 6 pm. A tire repair set is provided when one rents a bike.

Tip: put on anti-puncture tires. Our rental bikes are equipped with such tires as well. This brings the chance of getting a flat tire to the minimum.
