Self-Guided Cycling Holidays in Belgium

Independence, flexibility & cycling at your own pace

Belgium is a small and humble country that is often overshadowed by its more famous neighbours, but this is a spectacular destination that should be on your radar.

It’s here that you’ll find fairytale cities filled with magnificent architecture, elegant public squares, placid canals and cobblestoned shopping streets; and brilliant green countryside studded with historic villages and medieval castles.

Wander the narrow streets of gorgeous small cities, exploring historic architecture and an incredible arts legacy; or simply sit in a sidewalk café and soak up the atmosphere as you indulge in Belgium’s famous chocolate, waffles, fries and beer.

With its flat terrain and picturesque countryside, you’ll want to get out and experience the highlights of northern Belgium at handlebar level. Take a look at our unique itineraries and start planning your Belgian holiday.
