Set on a former island on the edge of Heegermeer, the largest lake in Friesland, Stayokay Heeg has its own certified sailing school, harbour and boathouse.

With a range of watersports to try out just outside the door, you’ll never be short of things to do in Stayokay Heeg. The hostel also provides a complimentary breakfast buffet. Try out the two on-site restaurants for dinner and visit the bar or main hall for a conversation and a game of pool. When the sun shines, you can relax on the beautiful waterside terrace.

Stayokay Heeg is located in a lovely village surrounded by Frisian lakes. If you fancy a day out, you can pack your own lunch bag and rent an electric boat, a sail boat, canoe or Polyvalk and discover Friesland from the water. From the hostel, rent a ‘tjotter’ – a small, authentic Frisian sail boat – and get a sailing lesson from one of the in-house professionals.
