On this unique self guided tour you will cycle through Western Flanders and Bruges. Most WWI-related places of interest are situated within the Bruges – Panne - Ypres triangle. If you want to stay longer, just book an extra night.
The happy highlight of this holiday is the wonderful town of Bruges. Preserved, renovated and added to in just the right medieval look, it is a harmonious and satisfying whole - cobbles and all. It feels like a fairytale village, complete with swan lake. Ypres, too, is lovely. After the devastation of WWI, it was restored to its former glory and recalls the days when the town was a proud commercial centre for quality cloth - woven fabric made from wool - in the 13th and 14th centuries.
Our route is signposted according to the cycling-by-numbers system. You will cycle along country lanes, tow paths, forest paths and cycling paths; past meandering brooks and dead-straight canals; behind the dunes and along the sea; through rolling meadows and endless cropfields. Battlefields, museums, cemeteries and memorials can be visited on Days 6 and 7 of this tour.
