A 'picturesque' landscape
Regarding tourism this country unfortunately often gets overshadowed by its bigger neighbour, the Netherlands. That is one more reason why we at Eurobike strive to put Belgium in the spotlight too. Belgium is home to great artists such as the Bruegel family and Peter Paul Rubens, but it has lots to offer for those who are not art enthusiasts too. Romantic river meadows, light forests and meadows lined with willows are inviting to any cyclist. Upmost relaxation and inspiration are guaranteed. The ambient scenery is rounded off by the excellent Belgian cuisine which draws inspiration from both the sea nearby and the French Haute Cuisine. Belgian beer, of which there are over 750 different types on offer for sampling, is world famous and definitely worth a try too.
Countryside and city in a small space – historic bourgeoisie and the great outdoors
Many Belgian cities such as Bruges, Antwerp or Ghent are characterised by international trade and a liberal burgeoisie, whose historic buildings are today in many places UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. They are in stark contrast with surrounding areas coined by agriculture, where picturesque villages alternate with vast fields and pastures. In addition Begium commands an extensive network of cycle paths – in the Belgian and Dutch province of Limburg alone there are more than 1800 km of routes which are nearly exclusively reserved for cycling holidays. Conveniently northern Belgium is nearly devoid of hills, only in the South and the Ardennes region can you expect ascents.
Comfortable holiday both by sea and by land – self-guided or in a group
Waterways are just as significant in the entire Benelux region as overland routes. A fact we at Eurobike take into account with our tours and this gives you a choice: do you prefer cycling or spend a day leisurely on deck? Part of the fleet we use for instance is the river boat MS Quo Vadis with twelve cabins, bar and restaurant or the saloon yacht MS Miró with panorama windows and a fireplace. On land we follow amongst others the river Maas and the historic railway line ‚Vennbahn’, which originally connected today’s Luxembourg with Aachen. After nearly a century the railway lines were turned into a cycle path attracting cyclists from all over Europe today.
Eurobike organises your cycling holiday unconditionally
Our aim is a carefree holiday for you: to do so we take your luggage and transfer it safely, we organise all amenities along the route – from breakfast to accommodation with a nice bed waiting for you at the end of the day. Each of our stages is clearly marked, which allows you to always be on the right track without having to deal with navigation and map-reading. In addition we also provide maps and detailed information for each stage. With Eurobike you always keep your bearings and always have informative details on hand en route. Our hotline is always open for any queries, suggestions or problems that you may have. This means that a puncture or the alledged shortcut in a cul-de-sac turns into a good story to tell later and does not become a big problem. We are more than happy to advise you should there be any questions and introduce you without obligation to our guided and self-guided routes before you book.
