We bring you by bus from Ronquières to Strépy-Thieu.
This guided boat tour starts at the foot of the renowned Strépy-Thieu ship elevator. After an ascent of 73m with this 'lift', we navigate on the new 'canal du Centre', which was built as a kind of aqueduct high above the Hainaut landscape. We sail as far as Houdeng-Goegnies, where we make a short guided walk to the hydraulic lift no. 1 on the historical 'canal du Centre' near La Louvière (Unesco world heritage site).
After boarding we continue our boat trip through the Seneffe area, where the Charleroi-Brussels Canal meets the new 'canal. du Centre'. Finally we reach the Inclined Plane of Ronquières, that we track down in a large water basin and thus bridge a height difference of 68m.
We disembark at te foot of the Inclined Plane.
