Belgium Beer, Bikes and Boats

Adventure price: Starting at $750 per person

Tour Description

We are excited for a new opportunity for our Beer and Bike guests. New for 2020 we are pairing up with Olga, Noty & Maurits. Together they captain, cook and relax on a 1924 cargo ship that has been reimagined and converted into a passenger ship. Staying true to our beer and bike heritage we will cycle between breweries while our barge floats along and is waiting for us at the end of each ride with cold beers a warm bed. We have two trips for 2020. An 8 day trip from Oudenaarde to Bruges and a 5 day trip in Limburg.

Oudenaarde to Bruges Adventure

We will sail and cycle from Oudenaarde to Bruges via Deinze and Ghent. Cycling unburdened between these towns as our luggage floats down stream we will be free to explore the smaller roads and paths between the breweries along the way. In the evenings we will enjoy the local pubs, brown bars and Belgian cuisine that is so much more than just Frites and beer.

Our boat will moor at each town for 2 nights giving us some extra time to explore and absorb each location.

Limburg Wander

We sail an out and back from Eisden sampling craft Belgian ale and delightful Trappist beers. This area is a new location for our tours. We have worked with Olga and the Limburg tourism folks to create a variety of rides to introduce you to the region. This short trip pairs well with our other adventures.
