Sailing regions

Discover our tourist boat trips! We sail through five fascinating regions.

Sail along and discover The route of the extraordinary boat lifts

The impressive ship elevator of Strépy-Thieu and the famous Inclined Plane of Ronquières help us overcome great differences in altitude. We cruise through the undulating Hainaut landscape, the great lock of Ittre and the historic hydraulic ship elevators, awarded as Unesco World Heritage Sites. During our guided boat tours you can experience these nautical ‘works of art’ from the front row. Expect a unique experience!

Boating & cycling

Do you love our waterways and nature, a relaxing bike ride and a fresh breeze aboard a ship? Then a boat trip through the Green Belt, the Zenne Valley or the National Park Scheldt Valley is definitely something for you. Out by boat and back by bike or vice versa: most boat trips can be perfectly combined with a relaxing bike ride. You can explore the region along one of the many signposted cycling routes. Cycling is done on your own initiative and with your own bike.
