Flanders Finest

Bruges - Ghent - Antwerp - Mechelen - Leuven - Hasselt - Maastricht

The Flanders Finest tour shows you the major Belgium highlights, the perfect ride for everyone interested in the rich Belgium history, art, nature and food. The Flemish art cities of Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Mechelen, Leuven and Brussels are the most famous and favourite cities of Belgium.

This unique trip combines these vibrant historic towns together with the smaller shopping, fashion and food cities of Hasselt and Maastricht. The bike ride in between these lovely towns will show you the variety of landscapes of the northern part of Belgium.

Facilities

Day 1 Bruges - Ghent (48 km)

Your individual tour starts with a ‘group’ bike fitting and thorough explanation of your tour in the ‘Venice of the north’; Bruges. After this ‘group’ instruction you will start your self guided tour. Pedal out of the UNESCO World Heritage medieval city centre, with its bell tower rising up over the wide open market. The ride on this first day is mainly along the canal Ghent – Bruges. A nice quiet bike lane guides you through farmland and some lovely forest areas. Have your first coffee stop in Beernem or Sint Joris before heading on to Aalter. In Aalter you can decide to make a small detour to the city centre to go for lunch, but you can also continue your trip, as along the route you will find a lot of lovely spots where you can enjoy your own prepared picnic. The van Vlaenderens mill in Vinderhoute is a clear landmark just before you enter the historic town of Ghent. In 2020, don’t miss the chance to admire world-famous masterpiece the Mystic Lamb by the Van Eyck brothers or just simply enjoy the great atmosphere this town offers and explore the small labyrinth of charming cobblestone streets, the Gravensteen castle, the Graslei and the bell tower.

 

Day 2 Ghent - Antwerp (70 or 45 km)

After breakfast, take a nice bike lane out of the historic town. Today’s ride is a long one but if you are worried about the distance, you can also opt to take the train (bike on the train) up to Lokeren which will reduce the ride by 25 km. Lokeren is one of those small hidden gems with a friendly central square where you just have to sit down for a while. From Lokeren onwards you will ride along lovely lakes, along one of the side arms of the river Schelde, the Durme, up to the Schelde, Flanders’ major river. Along the Schelde you will encounter the cosy villages of Temse (with some small hills), Rupelmonde with its tide mill and Bazel with the castle Wissekerke. From Bazel it’s just a short ride to Antwerp. Antwerp is a good-looking city, with its range of medieval buildings in the central square and with numerous Art Nouveau gems in between. The access to this town is easy as you can reach the centre by a 572-metre long foot and bike tunnel, 31 metres below the surface.

 

 Day 3 Antwerp - Mechelen (39 km)

Today’s ride is a short one giving you the opportunity to include an early morning visit to one of the museums in Antwerp. The ride today, as on the first day, is once again totally flat. Along the Schelde the bike ride goes south out of town to Hemiksem, where you will find an interesting abbey. Near Niel you will leave the Schelde and will join the Rupel, another lovely river, where you will find an interesting brickwork museum. This museum gives you a complete picture of ordinary brickwork in all its aspects. In Boom, you have to take a ferry to cross the Rupel. As the ferry only runs a few times every hour, the restaurant nearby is a perfect lunch stop. By the maze of waterways, bridges and sluices you will enter the city of Mechelen along the Dijle river. Mechelen is a small and picturesque city that is big on charm and history, thriving with quaint shops, car-free areas and pleasant little squares. Your hotel is a brewery as well and as you will understand, a brewery tour and a good Belgian beer at dinner are a must as well!

 

 Day 4 Mechelen (visit of Brussels by train)

In Mechelen you will have a day off. Why not start the morning with a brewery tour before you take a train (30 minutes) to Brussels. As the headquarters of the European Union and NATO, this metropolis is often referred to as the Capital of Europe. While it is certainly international, it offers more than government buildings. With over 75 museums and a rich history, culture is easily accessible. Just think of ‘Manneken-Pis’, the Grand Place, the famous chocolates, the high quality restaurants and the nightlife scene. Finally, take a train back to Mechelen where you will stay for a second night.

 

 Day 5 Mechelen - Leuven (36 km)

After a possibly late arrival back at your hotel last night, it’s nice to know the ride on day 5 is a short one once again. So there is no rush to leave and you can even wake up a bit later. The first part of the ride will be along the winding Dijle river up to the father Damien statue near Tremelo. Pass Werchter (known for its yearly musical festival with over 150,000 fans) with its rock museum and finally cycle on to Leuven, a vibrant student town. The university of Leuven is one of the most important and oldest universities in Europe. Leuven is also Belgium’s reigning brewing capital with the headquarters of Inbev, the second largest brewery in the world. Together with the beautiful historic city centre, it makes Leuven a great place for the curious traveller!

 

 Day 6 Leuven - Hasselt (72 or 44 km)

Another great but long ride. But for the less experienced bikers there is the opportunity to skip the second part of the ride from Diest to Hasselt. Take the train together with your bike and so reduce the ride by 28 km. In the town of Leuven, you will pass two lovely abbeys before heading out of town. Enjoy the lovely ride along rolling quiet streets and the forest areas near castle van Horst before heading to Scherpenheuvel. The basilica of Scherpenheuvel – the place of pilgrimage in Belgium – is the oldest dome church in the low countries, inaugurated in 1627 and with both Renaissance and Baroque characteristics. From Scherpenheuvel it’s just a short ride to the lovely historic town of Diest, with its beautiful and picturesque beguinage at the edge of the historic city centre. If you continue biking, the final part of the ride will be through mostly forested areas up to the Albert canal. This canal connects Antwerp with the river Maas. Hasselt, the capital of the Limburg province, is also situated along this canal and offers you an interesting stay for the night.

 

 Day 7 Hasselt - Maastricht (65 or 53 km)

The final day adds yet another great memory to your bike tour. Before leaving the town, you can admire the largest authentic Japanese garden in Europe. Cycle on along the Albert canal to the area near Genk. As you are riding through lovely forests you will have no idea you are close to the third most significant economical city of Flanders. On leaving the forests and heathlands you will join Oud-Rekem, just a small village but one which has one of the most authentic preserved village centres of Belgium. The castle, city gate and other parts of the city walls have also been preserved. At this point we offer you two alternatives for your ride up to Maastricht. Either a beautiful ride along the Albert canal, deeply sheltered inbetween steep hills with caves, or a short ride by crossing the Maas. Maastricht in the Netherlands is the final destination of your tour and maybe one of the most scenic Dutch towns with its bourgondic atmosphere and rich history. In Maastricht your tour will end and you will meet a Tulip Cycling representative once again. The train station in Maastricht has perfect connections to all parts of the country.

Your question
The support given by Tulip Cycling was excellent. The equipment, choice of bike paths and the pre-programmed GPS made the whole experience one of pure delight and fun with gorgeous sights all the way, wonderful accommodations and easy travel.
Tissot family, USA
A wonderful trip!!! Thanks to Peter for all his help to make it so special (and for convincing me to do the trip without a tour group). We had such a great time. My two 10 year old girls had such a great fun (and were proud of their accomplishment). It is a of a trip we will all remember. Thanks for everything! I’ve already recommended you to friends.
Sharon Moore
Just returned from our fabulous journey from Amsterdam to Bruges. It was outstanding! The itinerary, the equipment (bikes, GPS, maps, etc.) and our guide Peter were fantastic. Peter really have deep knowledge of his country, what a memorable ride across the Netherlands.
Brigitte and Francois
Thank you for everything. We packed lots of memories into this trip. It was a grand way to learn about Netherlands and see what a cultured and friendly place it is.
The GPS was essential, and we are so glad we learned to use it. Everytime, we wondered where is Peter taking us? We would come across a canal, field of flowers, quaint village, spectacular scenery. Thank you so much.
Susan and Billy Hobart
You run a very professional organization and we look forward to more tours in the future. You have made us biking enthusiasts.
Michael and Chau Smith
Because of you we had a magnificient trip! I’m excited to tell all my friends about my trip and this lovely country and encourage them to come and visit and use Tulip Cycling to see the country.
Mary Thomas
I thought I would just let you know we are having such a GREAT TIME!! Maybe you can find a job for a orthodontist and a Radiologist for us.?
Louise Taillard, South Africa
Thank you so much for this very enjoyable experience! Your organizational skills and attention to detail are outstanding.
Barbara Morgan
Just to thank you again for the wonderful trip, yours was the 7th we made and one of our favorites now
Alicia Fuentes
My wife and I just finished a 4 day self guided tour. It was fabulous! Tulip planned a route that we never could have found on our own. The equipment and handling of our luggage made everything easy. We loved the trip!!
Bob Brownson
Thank you Tulip Cycling for a exciting and scenic 5 day tour through part of your beautiful country. Peter’s meticulous organisation and first class equipment made our ride a memorable one.
Geoff and Bethany Canberra Australia
Our friends recommended this cycling trip for my 50th birthday and it was a fabulous celebration-- by far the best family vacation we’ve ever taken! The route Peter crafted for us was perfect-- so beautiful! The hotels were quaint, food was delicious. And our 11 and 12 year old loved riding tandem. I cried when we had to go home. We’ve talked about this trip for months... can’t wait to return. A 5-star experience!
Jane and Mark
The trip overall was our favorite vacation we've ever taken. We feel privileged to have visited. As a lifelong cyclist, it was like visiting the promised land.
Katherine and Stephen Coleman, USA
Thank you for organizing our trip this summer, we had a fantastic time and will definitely return in the future. We had so many good experiences traveling along the countryside enjoying the scenery and weather.
Auburn and Sean Brady, USA
We had a great time in Holland.
Thank you for everything.
Carvajal family, Mexico
Our memories are still fresh in our minds and we loved every minute of out time in the Netherlands. Your company ensured the cycling portion was flawless and most enjoyable. Thank you for providing top quality bicycles and support equipment.
John and Peg Lalonde, Canada
The tour was wonderful, and I've recommended your services highly to my friends. In particular, the route selection was superb.
Judith Macaluso, USA
We had the most wonderful holiday with your company and I wish to say a big thank you for all your hard work and professionalism in ensuring we had the best possible experience.
Gillian and John Au, UK
Tulip Cycling just got better!
We do a weeks self guided tour with Tulip Cycling every year and have now been cycling for 9 years each time in a different area of this lovely country.
John and Christine Widdowson, UK
Our trip with you was fantastic....and we've told many others about it. The GPS made it unique.
Martens family, USA
We have recommended your business to many people – as we had a terrific cycling trip, due to your professional organisation and fabulous path routing. The GPS was brilliant and the route really showcased the variety of experiences available in the Netherlands – there is no better way to see a country than through the eyes of a local.
Thank you, again.
Richard Lewis
It was truly an extraordinary journey, where everything was carefully prepared by you and your staff.
We were enchanted by the landscapes of flower fields, windmills, canals, small towns and by the kindness with which we were treated by the Dutch people. It was really unforgettable days that make us want to return, and invite our friends as well.
Emerson de Carvalho
Tailor made tour for 3 days of cycling for my husband, me and teenage son! Fantastic bikes, superb organization!!! A fantastic get away and we just had to show up. Lots of opportunity to add in our own stops along the way, the route details, booked hotels and luggage transport made for a stress free journey. Peter is outstanding and lives what he does. Every detail taken care of do you can just get on the bike pedal away with your GPS route!
Elspeth
We did a six day ride in June to mark my 70th birthday. The accommodations were amazing; small, neat, clean hotels and bed and breakfasts. The GPS was a little iffy for us, but Peter always answered our call for a quick fix! I would love to come back and do another ride.
Terry Dickow
Yes, one can DIY a bike trip around the country, but we believe that the depth of knowledge that Tulip provided for our ride took us to and through places that we would not otherwise have experienced just following a map or Google Maps over 16 days. We believe Tulip provided very good value and we recommend them highly.
Julie So
We asked Peter to plan a ride on our tandem from Amsterdam to Ghent, Belgium in 8 days in September 2018. He planned the route, with beautiful maps and excellent GPS, arranged the hotels and the luggage transport. We even go to almost see the King in The Hague.
Only thing he couldn't control was the weather, when a storm blew in from the North Sea. We got a bit wet and wind-blown, but thoroughly enjoyed all of his arrangements.
Dolly Craft
We did the short version of the historic town. It was perfect for us as an American family of four with two teenage kids (13 and 16). If we ever get another chance, we would do it again and probably build in more days to the trip to just enjoy the different towns.
Samantha Pearson
My husband and I did a 1-week tour through parts of the Netherlands in May 2018 and we loved our experience. Peter and Tulip Cycling were amazing! The level of detail and organization is spectacular! Communication with Peter is easy and quick. Our experience was so good that we are returning again next year with a large group! I highly recommend this tour company - you will be very pleased with the service!
Natascha Wesch
We were very happy with your cycling service. The e-bikes and GPS were an excellent choice for us as was your instruction at the outset. The Hanseatic tour was very interesting and the countryside beautiful. We particularly noticed how friendly and helpful the people in Holland are. We also noticed a more positive attitude about cyclists by motorists in Holland compared to motorists in Canada.
Jim May
Skillfully selected routes, state of the art equipment, charming hotels. Our tour of the Netherlands was seamless. Thank you Tulip Cycling!
Lori & Niamh, Alberta Canada
Very well chosen route, perfect logistics, good equipment. Thank you for a great vacation, Peter. We look forward to coming again.
Alli Gil and Vladimir Kontovorich
Peter provided equipment, guidance, luggage transport and reservations for our 8 day trek from Amsterdam to Gent. It could not have been staged better. The GPS routing was spot on as it kept us on smaller, less traveled roads and brought us to comfortable hotels in each city/town center. As it turned out, I needed to take a day off from cycling because of an injury and Peter arranged for our luggage courier to pick up my bike as well. The bike...Read More..
Peter provided equipment, guidance, luggage transport and reservations for our 8 day trek from Amsterdam to Gent. It could not have been staged better.

As it turned out, I needed to take a day off from cycling because of an injury and Peter arranged for our luggage courier to pick up my bike as well. The bike moved to the next destination and after a day’s respite I was able to join my husband for the rest of the riding. We felt totally supported by Tulip and enjoyed the experience. We like to see the world slowly on our feet or on a bike. Tulip helped us make this possible.
Renee and Michael Malaki
Just returned from a fantastic 13-day tailor-made self-guided tour with Tulip Cycling. This was our first cycling trip and it exceeded expectations. The bicycles and accessories were perfect for the terrain, the maps and GPS made it impossible to get lost and guided us past great sights and surprises, and the hotels were centrally located and unique properties.
Tanya and Richard
Tulip Cycling did a great job organizing a beautiful cycling trip for our family. We had three generations of cyclists from ages 9 to 75, and the trip was the perfect amount of cycling for all of us through villages, polders, farm fields, forests, country roads and over bridges and canals. The GPS system worked perfectly, the hotels you suggested were lovely, and every detail of the trip was considered and arranged. We would use you again if we...Read More..

Our father - son trip from Amsterdam to Bruges was flawless - thanks in large part to your help and planning and organizing our trip! Your ebikes were very high quality, the itinerary was scenic & safe, the hotels and inns you helped us were wonderful.

We meet with Peter in Amsterdam and were very impressed with his knowledge of the cycle trip we were about to embark on and his passion for both cycling and his home country Holland.

This tour exceeded our expectations 10 fold.
I must point out that we experienced the most amazing weather. Out of character for Holland.
We cannot recommend this trip more highly. Our only criticism was no air con in the Hotels which everyone told is not usually needed.
Donna Steur
We had a great time in Netherlands thanks to Tulip Cycling! Our trip was tailor-made to have short daily rides for our kids, which was highly appreciated. The GPS system was perfect, we never got lost. The hotels were nice. We recommend this very professional cycling travel agency.
Aurore Fabre
Nous avons adoré nos vacances à vélo. L’organisation est impeccable, les trajets proposés sont magnifiques. Toute la famille (2 adultes et 2 ados de 13 et 16 ans) est unanime, on recommande vivement Tulip Cycling.
Émile, Marie-Odile, Jean-Charles et Chantal (Québec, Canada)
My husband, I and some friends did 3 times rides with Tulip Cycling, and so far is the best company I met. Peter is very careful. The routes are excellent, the equipment too. Everything is done with great care. We travel a lot by bike and we always want to be with Tulip Cycling. I totally recommend them.
Wania Stocche Barbosa
My adult daughter and I did a cycling tour along the coast of the Netherlands. Tulip Cycling was brilliant. The bikes are extremely comfortable (upright so your shoulders and hands don’t get sore) and in great condition. They put a lot of thought into the paths you cycle and the GPS was easy to deal with. The scenery was breath taking. We utilized the courier service for our luggage and which always beat us to the next stop. I really...Read More..
