Hotel here, guesthouse there….

At the request of bikers that wish to finish the Eleven Towns Tour in 7 days at the very most, and prefer sleeping in little authentic accommodations, the tourism board of Friesland Holland developed 7 new Eleven Towns-biking packages called “Hotel & Pension”.

The biking holiday starts at a hotel in the wooded and cozy region Gaasterland or in the city Koudum where the tour of 250 kilometers will also end. The 6 accommodations are located on or close by the original Eleven Towns Tour in the surrounding of Gaasterland, Bolsward/Makkum, Harlingen, Franeker, Dokkum, Leeuwarden/Weidum and Sneek/Joure/St. Nicolaasga. Some accommodations are guesthouses or family hotels, located perfectly in either amusing city- or village centres or at the countryside.

Not only the location and size but also the allurement, kitchen and atmosphere in the accommodations are completely different which makes the tour even more exciting. Additionally, all accommodations are of outstanding quality and have been inspected. They will welcome you with open arms, offer you a generous three course menu and a pleasant bed while Friesland Holland takes care of your luggage so you can enjoy “Lovely Friesland”.
