We bring you by bus from Halle to Strépy-Thieu, where the boat trip departs.
Immediately after departure we navigate in the impressive ship elevator of Strépy-Thieu, which allows us to bridge a height difference of 73m. We continue our boat trip on the new 'canal du Centre', which has been constructed as a kind of aqueduct above the landscape and enjoy a panoramic view on the Hainaut plateau. At Houdeng-Goegnies we make a short walk to the hydraulic ship lift nr.1 on the historical 'canal du Centre' (Unesco World Heritage Site).
Some time later we continue our trip on the Canal Charleroi-Brussels and we 'track' down the Inclined Plane of Ronquières (68m) in a large water basin. Finally the ship passes through the boat locks of Ittre and Lembeek.
Our daytrip takes end in Halle, where we disembark.
Additional info: the boarding point in Halle is easy to reach by train: the station is a 5-minute walk from the Suikerkaai. Cars can be parked freely on Sundays in the Delhaize car park next to Suikerkaai.

Within the framework of the Corona measures, we limit the capacity of the ship to less than half, in order to respect 'social distancing'. On board we also provide hand sanitizer and information posters with clear safety instructions. Each ship has its own atmosphere, setting and arrangement and is equipped with bar, audio and multimedia devices. Sailing can be done from different embarkation points, with or without catering.
