Escape to Bruges, one of the most beautiful cities in Belgium, with a relaxed cycle tour that gives you plenty of time to appreciate its medieval streets and cafe culture, as well as visit the authentic towns and windswept landscapes of the Flemish countryside. Expect easy cycling on this family friendly tour as you pedal along quiet roads and cycle tracks, with a choice of flexible itineraries. You'll enter forested nature reserves and see the crenellated walls and red towers of rural castles. Cycling between the sea and sand dunes, you'll visit authentic beach towns along the North Sea coast – think blonde sands and Hansel & Gretel houses.

Return to Bruges each evening and indulge guilt-free – look forward to garlicky moules-frites, hot waffles dribbled with chocolate and cold Belgian beers. There are four cycling routes to choose from, making use of the easy to navigate cycle network around Bruges.

Find out why Bruges is best discovered by bike with our staff trip report from Sales Consultant Sarah who cycled this tour in May 2016.
