Discover the beautiful landscapes and charming towns of Belgium as you travel by bike and barge between Bruges and Brussels. Explore the magical town of Bruges, famous for its small channels, museums and picture postcard buildings. The cycling itinerary takes you to the North Sea and the seaside resort Blankenberge, and to medieval towns including Ghent and Antwerp. There is time to visit the market squares en route, and sample the local waffles, chocolate and beer. Cruise in comfort on the small barge, along beautiful and winding rivers and channels. The trip ends in Brussels with a chance to wander the old town with its Gothic town hall and guild houses.
