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 the www.trekkershutten.nl.
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.
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. You can recognize an accredited cabin by the plaque which bears the official Trekkershutten® logo. This is your guarantee that the cabin and all its fixtures and fittings are of appropriate quality. Every cabin is inspected at least once every three years. In the Netherlands, inspections are carried out by an official agency (KMVK). In other countries they are conducted by specially trained volunteers.
Only cabins which meet our strict quality requirements are entitled to use the Trekkershutten® logo. The location and nearby facilities are also important. This website and the Hiker’s Cabins map show all cabins which are accredited by De Groene Koepel.
