Elfstedentocht - Tour of all skating tours

The Elfstedentocht or Eleven Cities Tour is a skating tour from nearly 200 km / 120 miles on natural ice. If the event can be held than this is an experience that every good skater must have lived. An authentic Dutch Mostpoint but at the same time one for many skaters from other countries! On the last ocasion more than 16,000 skaters participated and many more were not admitted. The tour goes along eleven places in the northern province of Friesland, which received city rights as well as passed many villages. In these cities the skaters must present themselves to get their paper stamped. In the villages it does not have to be done but there are three surprise checkpoints. Skaters must finish before 12 o’clock at night. The Elfstedentocht is certainly not skated every year and it is actually a very unique event when it takes place. Since the first race in 1909 there are only 15 official tours ridden and the last one was in 1997. It must have frozen a minimum number of days and the ice must be at least 15 centimeter / 6  inches thick which is not an easy thing on such a long stroke of water where shipping complicates the process as well.
