Bike ride along the Ghent waterways

Discover the water city by bike

Do you love water? Then Ghent is the place to be… Get on your bike and cycle with us along the most beautiful rivers, canals and other waterways.

More about this tour

If you look at the town from above, you will notice immediately: the town is crisscrossed with waterways that are sometimes a maze even for locals. Did you know for instance that Ghent has five yacht-basins? Follow our guide on this most original bike ride along green, less-trodden paths. You will discover Ghent as a water town, along the historic Bijloke site and the abbeys, past the stylish mansions on the stately Coupure canal and the charming river Lys. Do you fancy watersports, gardening or architecture? Tell your guide what you are interested in and he/she will take you to the “Watersportbaan”, the yacht-basins, the interbellum houses in the so-called millionaires’ quarter or the garden quarters on the “island” on the outskirts of the town.
