Dunes at De Haan
Highlights include the elegant seaside resort of De Haan, the dunes and beaches of the coast, and the wide open polder landscapes and the pretty canal towpaths that will form the backdrop to your daily rides.
Returning to Bruges each night you’ll really get the chance to know the ‘Venice of the North’, arguably Belgium’s most beautiful city. It boasts an outstanding canal-lined centre, plus quaint chocolate stores, good restaurants and local cosy bars.
