‘The Belgium canals & Rivers are the undiscovered jewel of European waterways’
Flanders, a pearl yet to be discovered
Containing more than 950 km of navigable rivers and canals, Flanders is one of the most interconnected regions of Europe. Discover the many charming cities and towns, each with their own local products and activities. Think of popular places such as Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, Lille… Immerse yourself in the cultural and gastronomical surprises that these vibrant and interesting places have to offer. When mooring in these iconic locations, the harbour masters will be more than happy to give you a hand and welcome you at their habitat. If you would rather take a break from the vivacity of city life, then navigate in Flanders’ picturesque, rural watercourses. Westhoek and Leie are highly recommended. Here’s a tip we would like to share with you: taste our delicious, world-famous Belgian beers in a local pub or at a cosy terrace. Also to discover: Flanders Fields. The history of World War I will undoubtedly capture your imagination. Thousands of white graves remind us of this dark page in Belgian history. The remembrance has been kept in tradition since those dark times, with a performance of the ‘Last Post’ at 8PM daily. Seeing this respectful event will remain with you forever. Curious for the Belgian coast? Breathe in the fresh sea air on a yacht in Ostend or Newport. At night, you can take a romantic walk on the beach and go out for dinner in one of the many restaurants on the seaside and definitely taste our popular Belgian mussels with french fries.
