Premium tour: Cycling through cities and countryside

During this trip through northern France and Flanders (northern Belgium), from Paris to Bruges, you will cycle through attractive landscapes, over gently forested undulations and across open farmland, along the rivers Seine, Oise and Somme, Scarpe and Scheldt. Here the watershed appears to be the actual border.

This tour is characterized by a wide variation in landscapes and has all the ingredients a good bike and barge tour needs to explore these interesting regions. Highlights of the first stage in France are – obviously – beautiful Paris, the “City of Lights” as unbeatable start of a beautiful discovery tour, the Chateau de Chantilly and its art gallery the Musée Condé that houses one of the finest collections of paintings in France, and World War I battle fields and memorials in the Somme valley. The second stage in Belgium features highlights like Vincent van Gogh’s heritage, tapestry in Oudenaarde, history in medieval Ghent, a nice Belgium beer at end of your daily cycling tour and magnificent Bruges, “Pearl of Flanders” and destination of this two-week discovery tour.

The cycling tours go over gently forested undulations and across open farm land, along the rivers Seine, Oise, Somme and Scheldt; the French-Belgian border also appears to be more or less the watershed between the river basins of Seine and Scheldt. As well as being able to discover many picturesque villages each day – both on your bicycle and on foot – you will be able to:

    Visit many highlights of Paris;
    Walk to the grave of Vincent van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise;

    Admire the splendid chateau of Chantilly; a luxurious castle with an impressive art collection and horse dressage;

    Visit the town of Péronne with her fascinating “Grande Guerre” museum;
    Pass through Oudenaarde, the town of the tapestry weavers
    Explore Ghent where several masterpieces of medieval painting are to be found, “The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb” by Jan van Eyck being the most famous of all;
    Visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed historical center of Bruges.
