A truly surprising holiday! The region between the Belgian coast and the stunning city of Bruges is a very special one, yet waiting to be discovered by both kids and adults. This cycling trip is one for the whole family, sea and sand, cultural heritage, shopping in Bruges, picturesque villages and cycling paths through a splendid countryside.
Sometimes, it really looks like time has stood still for some centuries: you can admire old houses, narrow streets, beautiful medieval buildings, but there are also nice restaurants, modern boutiques and a delicious gastronomy. There is truly loads to do in Bruges. As a family holiday, we will focus on the kids favourites, what they would really want to see. A boat trip on the ‘Reien’ is always a nice experience. These boat trips usually last half an hour. For a really wonderful time, you can go to the Boudewijn Seapark. It is not just a park where you can admire the dolphins in a huge basin, but also features a nice theme park. The kids will have a wonderful time in the chocolate museum ‘Choco-Story’! But, certainly, they will also like the historical centre of Bruges, with the famous market place and the belfry. Trips by carriage through the historic town centre are also possible. Or how about Zeebrugge? In Zeebrugge, you can visit Seafront, a mari-time theme park, where you can visit an ancient Russian submarine, and discover how life is on sea.
On the way to Oostende, you can discover De Haan, a village which has beautifully preserved the Belle Epoque style (19th century). After an unforgettable tour we arrive in Oostende, also known as the ‘queen of all coastal towns’. The stay in Oostende will be a paradise for the children! The hotel is situated at the beach, and there is a lot to discover: children’s farm ‘De Lange Schuur’, the playground ‘Airport Bowl’ and Earth Explorer. You will stay in a child friendly hotel in Oostende, as there is a playground, a bouncing castle.
This tour will brung us to the nice an flat countryside behind the Belgian coast, also named ´polder landscape´. Oudenburg is a typical Flemish village, built on the foundations of an ancient roman city.
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 strategic role during the First World War. The children will certainly enjoy the harbour and the nature reserve ´Ysermonde´. You can also have a break on the wide and lovely beach.
We cycle back to Bruges and will pass cosy villages such as Bredene. Enjoy the typical Belgian landscape with the children. We will also pass the silent canal Ostend – Bruges and the popular ´Spuikom in Ostend.
Departure after breakfast or extension.
