Viva la Frisia: Historical Cities Route

The Historical Cities Route has especially been made by the bureau for tourism Friesland Holland for people who are interested and want a taste of the Eleven Cities culture, but who do not necessarily have to see all the Eleven Cities. Just a relaxed trip from one pearl to the other, including shuttle service, luggage service and breakdown service. You will cycle this route on a luxury e-bike of Friesland’s vacation specialist.

The route
The 120 kilometres long route will go through the entire South-West of Friesland and differs a lot when it comes to the landscape, culture and history. You will cycle through the Frisian lake area, the forest of Gaasterland and along the beautiful coast of the IJsselmeer to Sloten (the smallest city in the world), Stavoren (‘t Vrouwtje), Hindeloopen (Eleven Cities ice skating museum), Workum (Jopie Huisman), Bolsward (Sonnema and Us Heit), Sneek (Shopping city), IJlst (Working sawmill) to get eventually back to your starting hotel in Sneek. You will be spending the night in comfort rooms.

Sites
One thing is for certain: The Historical Cities Tour is a line of sites and rare nature with the view at the ‘sea’ (IJsselmeer) and the Frisian lakes. Every kilometre is a surprising, or a relief. That is the beauty of South-West Friesland: you can experience a lot of things, but you can also surround yourself in absolute silence and panoramas. During the cycling tour of circa 120 kilometres we recommend you the most beautiful spots in the Frisian landscape and the culture-historical sites on the route.

Friesland cycling land
The tour is suitable for all age groups and very secure. You will be cycling mainly over special designed cycling paths, far away from the fast traffic. Once in a while you will be cycling over bike-friendly country roads. People are not allowed to drive over 60 kilometres an hour on a rural road where bikers also cycle. The police is checking this very often. Friesland is the cycling province of the Netherlands!

Friesland at sea
Friesland is one of the twelve provinces of the Netherlands with a very strong identity and language. But the Frisians are also internationally oriented: they speak multiple languages and/ or worldwide active with the trade of products which come from the Frisian bottom, like vegetables and fruit, dairy products and machines, water purification equipment, bicycles and computer games. The Romans who were not able to settle down in Friesland, were the first customers.

Shuttle service
The first day, day 1, and the last day, day 5, are no cycling days. On the first day, you will be picked up at Groningen Airport Eelde by the Friesland Holland Shuttle Service. In case you are travelling via Amsterdam Airport or via the public transport, you will be picked up at a train station in Friesland (Heerenveen or Leeuwarden). The minibus will take you to your stating hotel in Friesland. The starting hotel is also your finish. This is also the place where you will be picked up on day 5 and brought to the airport of train station for your journey back home.

Top E-bike
After checking-in in the starting hotel you will receive a new and very comfortable e-bike, an electrical bike with power assistance. You can easily cycle, even with strong headwind, distances until 80 kilometres a day in the highest power assistance level. Friesland Holland Travel has the most beautiful and best e-bikes of the Netherlands! They do not rent you any typical, old bicycles, but the newest electro bicycles from the top segment.

Non-stop service
Friesland Holland transfers your luggage from hotel to hotel and provides breakdown service every day. A flat tire, bicycle breakdown? Within circa one hour you will have a new bicycle! The office of Friesland Holland is reachable via phone seven days a week between 08.00 and 23.00. The travel organisation has everything within their hands: tour organisation, shuttle service, bike rental, breakdown service, transfer replacement.

Hotels
Not only the location but also the size, the equipment level, the kitchen and the atmosphere of the lodges differ a lot. This makes the tour extra interesting. All lodges have been checked by Friesland Holland and all of them are fine and neat. The lodges offer the cyclers a warm welcome, a generous three course meal and a good bed. Enjoyment without concerns!
