    Belgiums wonderful beaches

    Culture, elegance and relaxation

    • ‘Culture, elegance and relaxation’ - these are the best words to describe this wonderful biketour!

      The historic buildings and museums in Bruges are world famous - white dunes as far as the eye can see.

      The best way to discover this region is by bicycle. You will cycle from historic Bruges to Ostend, the ‘queen’ of the Belgian coast; enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the hinterland, and above all your stay in the elegant hotel in Oostend!

      Tour profile / Level 1

      Easy and flat, suitable for all cyclists and families with children.

      Day 1: Bruges

      Individual arrival to Bruges.

      Day 2: Bruges – Ostend , approx. 40 km

      On the way to Ostend, you can discover the nice village of Lissewege, one of the best examples of the cosy villages in the hinterland of the coast. The silence and the indescribable atmosphere will certainly seduce you! After Lissewege, the famous seaside resort Blankenberge follows, where you can visit the ‘Sealife Centre’. Of course, you will also pass De Haan, a village, which has protected very well the ‚Belle Epoque‘ style (19th century). After an unforgettable tour, you arrive in Oostende.

      Day 3: round trip Gistel, Wijnendaele and Torhout , approx. 62 km

      Today you will discover some other nice places in the coastal region. Not only the landscape, but certainly the two castles on this tour will make also this day unforgettable! The first one is d’Aertrycke, which was built in 1869. The other one is Wijnendaele castle, which has a history of 8 centuries!

      Day 4: round trip Nieuwpoort and Veurne , approx. 64 km

      Nieuwpoort is just like Ostend and Blankenberge one of the favourite seaside resorts in Belgium. This small town is situated along the river mouth of the ‘Yser’, a river that played an important role during the First World War. Enjoy the harbour and the nature reserve ‘Ysermonde’. You can also have a break on the wide and lovely beach. The cosiness of the town of Veurne is not easy to describe in words. Veurne is known especially thanks to the procession of the penitents.

      Day 5: Ostend – Bruges , approx. 47 km

      This tour will be very interesting! You will pass in Jabbeke, where you can visit the Constant Permekemuseum (paintings and sculptures). In the observatory ‘Beisbroek’, you can learn everthing about the mysteries of the outer space, or you can strengthen your knowledge about nature in the ‘Nature Centre’.

      Day 6: Bruges – Knokke – Bruges, approx. 62 km

      Today you will explore the area between Bruges and Knokke, the most mondain village of the Belgian coast. It will again be an unforgettable trip, through the polder landscapes and the dunes. The main sight of this tour is the nature reserve ‘Het Zwin’ and the picturesque village Damme. Or, when it is warm enough, you can go swimming in the sea!

      With an electric bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, but also with physical disabilities, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern electric bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness levels. Acclivity can be handled easily.
