Cycling Belgium – Flanders

Boat Bike Tours are your experts for cycling holidays in Belgium — Flanders, the home of Belgium’s Flemish-speaking Belgians and also some wonderful cycling adventures! We offer you eight-day bike and barge tours through Flemish Belgium, all of which start and end in the world-famous cities of Bruges and Brussels. And which city you start in is entirely your choice.

How does it work? Every day you’ll wake in the comfort of your floating hotel and, after a satisfying breakfast, set out on your bike independently or with our guide, ready for an exciting day exploring the picturesque flat landscapes of Belgium – Flanders. Then, after a day of cycling along canal towpaths, through traditional villages, and along quiet country lanes you’ll find your barge quarters waiting for you. Perhaps it’s time for a well-earned drink!

Our cycling tours through Belgium will not only take you through the wonderfully pleasant Flemish countryside, and ancient locales where you can stop for a traditional Belgian beer or enjoy a coffee in a street cafe, but also stop by the most interesting Belgian cities between Bruges and Brussels.

Marvel at the modern architecture of Antwerp, the world’s diamond capital and a wonderful spot for nightlife; soak up the history of Mechelen, a former Dutch capital where you have great views of the surrounding area from Sint-Rombouts tower; and fall in love with the cozy medieval city of Ghent.

Bruges - Brussels

And, of course, a Bruges - Brussels cycling trip gives you the chance to get acquainted with the cosmopolitan Belgian capital, its famous occupants like the Manneken Pis and the superb drinking and dining of Belgium — as well as time to wander the UNESCO-listed old town of Bruges, which is a magical mix of cobbled streets, canals, churches and indescribable romantic atmosphere. During these classic cycling tours through Belgium, your hotel will be a motorized boat with all the modern comforts you might expect. Those looking for a premium standard of luxury should look no further than our MS Magnifique, one of the finest barges on Dutch and Belgian waterways. 
And maybe biking and boating your way through Belgium is not enough for you? Then why not consider also seeing the Netherlands, with our Bruges - Amsterdam tours!
