If you think flat, easy cycling routes are the only reason to join VBT in the Low Countries, think again.

In these lands of medieval and natural splendor, rustic windmills dot a dreamy countryside...simple ways are defined by the ebb and flow of the sea…and a rich mercantile tradition created powerful nations. To get to the heart of it all, we’ll unpack our bags once, then traverse wistful waterways at the most leisurely pace, mooring along the way so we can pedal along tranquil paths to storybook villages and chat with locals. Easy cycling? For sure. But these routes lead to endless rewards.
