A region of soft green hills, heather dotted landscapes and peaceful canals, West Flanders’ easy-going and mainly flat terrain is ideal for families. The legacy of Belgium’s role during World War One lives on through the memorials and battlefields which pepper the landscape, and the medieval streets and cafe culture in Bruges are something to look forward to halfway through.

You’ll thread your way through low hills, ride alongside picturesque canals and, when you tour along panoramic coastal paths, there's plenty of time to stop for a sea swim. Expect views of sweeping floodplains and wild dunes, and you’ll pass castle turrets and authentic villages on route. Blonde sands and leafy streets in the chic seaside resort of Knokke are a highlight, as are the storks and purple sea lavender of Het Zwin Nature Reserve.
