This guided boat trip starts at the foot of the Inclined Plane of Ronquières, one of the most remarkable hydraulic 'works of art' in Europe. We will 'track' in a large water basin across the Inclined Plain, bridging a height difference of 68m.
The boat trip passes the Seneffe area, where the Charleroi-Brussels Canal meets the new 'canal du Centre'. We cruise up to Houdeng-Goegnies, where you can enjoy a short guided walk to the hydraulic lift no. 1 on the historical 'canal du Centre' (Unesco World Heritage Site). Then we continue our trip on the new 'canal du Centre', which was built as a kind of aqueduct high above the Hainaut landscape.
Finally we reach the impressive Strépy-Thieu boat elevator and after a descent of 73m with this 'lift' we reach the quay of Thieu, where we disembark. We bring you back to Ronquières by bus.
