Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Bruges

Sometimes, it really looks like time has stood still for some centuries: you can admire old houses, narrow streets, beautiful medieval buildings, … But though, there are 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 maritime theme park, where you can visit an ancient Russian submarine, and discover how life is on the sea.

Day 2: Bruges – De Haan – Ostend (40 km)

On the way to Ostend, you can discover De Haan, a village which has beautifully preserved the ‚Belle Epoque‘ style (19th century). After an unforgettable tour, we arrive in Ostend, where you will stay in the ‘Thermae Palace Hotel’, built in Art Déco Style by King Leopold II.

The stay in Ostend 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’, Earth Explorer,…

Day 3: Circular ride to Oudenburg (30 km)

This tour will bring us to the nice and flat countryside behind the Belgian coast, also named ‘polder landscape’. Oudenburg is a tipical Flemish village, built on the foundations of an ancient roman city.

Day 4: Circular ride to Nieuwpoort (44 km)

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.

Day 5: Ostend – Bruges (36 km)

We cycle back to Bruges and will pass cosy villages such as Bredene. Enjoy the typical Belgian landschape with the children. We will also pass the silent canal Ostend – Bruges and the popular ‘Spuikom’ in Ostend.

Day 6: Cycling tour to Blankenberge and the North Sea (ca. 31 km)

There is nothing nicer for the kids than spending a day by the sea! Blankenberge is a busy town on the Belgian coast, and one of the favourite places of many tourists. What kids will really like is the Sea Life Marine Park, where they can discover the fascinating wildlife of the rivers and the oceans (sharks, piranhas,…)!

Day 7:Departure after breakfast
