Friesland by bike

Van der Valk Hardegarijp-Leeuwarden offers an excellent opportunity to explore beautiful Friesland by bicycle. You can easily book one of our standard- or e-bikes with one of our receptionists. Bringing your own bicycle is also possible. Your bike can be stored free of charge in our secured indoor bicycle shed. You can reserve a standard bicycle for €10,00 per bicycle, per day and  an e-bike for € 25,00 per bike, per day.

Our receptionists are happy to provide you with the most beautiful cycling routes, varying between 13 and 110 km. This way you can easily visit vibrant Leeuwarden by bike. Park your bicycle in the city’s secured bicycle shed and take a stroll through the city. Also, Dokkum, the northern star of Friesland, can easily be reached by bicycle and is one of Friesland’s highlights. How about the Frisian “Elfstedentocht” route? This route is officially an ice-skating route and definitely a must-do when visiting Friesland. Cycle through the 11 famous towns and pose for a nice photo at the famous “Elfsteden Tile Bridge”.

Nationaal Natuurpark de Âlde Feanen is also absolutely worth exploring by bike. Cycle through the beautiful nature reserve or take the “Pontjesroute”. If you take a hand full of change with you, various ferries will take you over the Frysian waters during this route.

Of course, you can also explore the area during a nice hike. Hiking trails are available at our front desk. All of the trails start and end at Van der Valk Hotel Hardegarijp-Leeuwarden.
