What are Hiker’s Cabins?
A Hiker’s Cabin is a wooden cabin which offers perfect overnight shelter for anyone enjoying a cycling or hiking holiday, visiting family on a campsite, or on tour with a group. All cabins can be rented for a single night and have basic but adequate facilities, including a comfortable bed, pillows, seating, lighting and electricity. You only have to bring your own sleeping bag and pillowcase. A description of the facilities available at each location can be found at www.trekkershutten.nl.
Trekkershut® is a registered trademark of De Groene Koepel. We monitor the quality of the cabins in the network by means of regular inspection visits. Only approved facilities are entitled to use the name and associated logo, which are displayed on a plaque outside each cabin. This is your guarantee of quality.
We publish the annual Hiker’s Cabins Map, showing the locations of all cabins in the Benelux countries and the German border region.
The Hiker’s Cabins network offers something for everyone, whether you are travelling on foot or by bike, alone or with children, and whether you want to stay one night or several. The search engine will help you to find exactly what you are looking for. Use the filters to stipulate your exact requirements. A growing number of Hiker’s Cabins are wheelchair accessible. Many have a shower and/or fully fitted kitchen. You can narrow down your search even further by selecting a particular type of location: seaside campsite, large recreation area, country estate or yachting marina, for example.
De Groene Koepel
The network of Hiker’s Cabins is administered by De Groene Koepel. In today’s rapidly changing leisure market, De Groene Koepel is a representative body for ‘green tourism’, specifically outdoor facilities for campers and hikers. We apply the core values of sustainability, the nature experience, cultural history and (corporate) social responsibility to our three networks: Natural Campsites, Group Natural Campsites and Hiker’s Cabins. We maintain close contact with private sector operators and public authorities in order to safeguard the future of the Hiker’s Cabins as a special form of leisure facility.
