Local Area

The surrounding area of Welgelegen is home to resplendent vistas of the farmlands and Frisian lakes.

Hindeloopen lies just 2 kilometres (1.2 miles) to the West while Workum is located 4 kilometres (around 2.5 miles) North of Welgelegen. These are the closest towns and are both part of the Frisian Elfstedentocht (Eleven Cities Tour).
You can walk right onto the beach at Workum and Hindeloopen. Past Koudum, to the South, lie the Frisian lakes with the Fluessen lake, and before long you’ll reach the woodlands of Gaasterland. From Stavoren, at a distance of 12 kilometres (around 7.5 miles), daytrips can be made to Enkhuizen on the other side of the IJsselmeer.

Outdoor Life

Lifestyle Welgelegen accommodations is a drawing place for nature lovers and active outdoorsy people; people who enjoy hiking, biking, kite surfing, wind surfing, paddle surfing, canoeing, fishing and travelling on an autoped. The IJsselmeer and the Elfsteden, the woodlands of Gaasterland and the Frisian lakes serve as wonderful sites for many outdoor activities and lively holiday pastimes where time will come to a complete standstill.
The nearby train and bus stations with lines to Sneek, Leeuwarden (Cultural Capital 2018) and Stavoren (with a ferry line to Enkhuizen) make it incredibly easy to spend your holidays throughout all of Friesland and enjoy its diverse scenery and the IJsselmeer coast. Whether you drive into Friesland over the Afsluitdijk (literally: enclosing dike) or from the South end, through Lemmer, both entrances into Friesland are characterised by their water pumping stations. Without these stations, Friesland would be flooded.

Welgelegen Accommodation beloved starting point for the many hike and bike tracks, such as the St. Odulphus path, the Elfstedenroute, the Groot-Frieslandpad LAW 14 (Great-Friesland path), the Elfmerenroute (Eleven lakes track), the Pontjesroute (Ferry track) the Zuiderzee (South Sea) route LF22, the Havenstedenroute (Port cities track)  and the Oersettersfietsroute (Transfer track).
