Eleven Towns Tour along historic accommodations

WOLVEGA (NL) – The Eleven Towns Tour is a historic skate and bicycling tour. The tourism board of Fryslân, Friesland Holland, has developed a 7-day package where you will spend the night in old but comfortable guesthouses, monastery’s, stud-farms and farms, specially made for people that want to merge into the romantic mood of a decade ago.

The accommodations, located in the quiet part of the centre and the country side all own an authentic restaurant with a typical Frisian cuisine. The Frisian cuisine has become refined and more diversified due to the influences of foreign cooking methods. The cooks, working at the small city- and country side accommodations, who mostly have direct contact with the customers, are specialists in making surprising and delicious dishes: a mix of the Frisian, Mediterranean and Eastern kitchen. The establishments, selected on authenticity and originality, also serve beers, whiskies, wine and other local products of the Frisian land with pride.

All-in
You will stay in comfort rooms on basis of halfboard (6x accommodation, 6x generous Frisian breakfast and 6x three course dinner menu). The travel organization of the tourism board will provide the route information, takes care of the transportation of your luggage and provides breakdown service to all bikers. You wil be pleasantly surprised every day!
