8 Days Easy-Moderate 265 KmAVG 44 Km

On this classic bike and barge cycling tour along the Schelde River you will experience the best of what the Flemish Region of Belgium – also known as Flanders – has to offer.

During the course of the 8 days, 7 nights tour you will visit the world famous cities of Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Mechelen and Bruges, will cycle through the beautiful Belgium landscape and will have the opportunity to be immersed in Belgium’s well-deserved reputation for superb food and drink. As well as cycling through many picturesque villages each day, you will:

Enjoy the best of Brussels
Visit Antwerp, a city famous for its vibrant nightlife
Get the opportunity to explore Ghent
Be able to explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed historical centre of Bruges
Visit Mechelen, a small and picturesque city

On a daily basis you will cycle along old tow paths next to small canals and rivers and via quiet country lanes to ancient villages steeped in history. Enjoy a coffee or one of the many village beers in an authentic Belgian pub where the locals approvingly raise their glass, especially when you arrive by bike. Your home away from home for the duration of the Bruges to Brussels tour is the premium barge MS Magnifique which has a capacity of 32-35 guests. One of the most luxurious barges cruising Dutch and Belgian waterways, the MS Magnifique, following a major 14 metre extension in 2012/13, now boasts 11 twin cabins, four premium twins, two single cabins and a beautiful large salon with restaurant, bar and lounge area.
