DISCOVER THE RICH (COURSE) HERITAGE OF THE FLEMISH ARDENNES

Heritage and the course. The Flemish Ardennes breathes both. The Tour of Flanders Center, Flemish Ardennes Heritage and the Flemish Ardennes Extra Guides hit the hands together to introduce you to these two assets. A wide range has been developed so that everyone can find something to their liking and can fully enjoy all the beauty that this region has to offer.

Total packages (by bus)

The day starts at the Tour of Flanders Center. After being welcomed with a coffee and cake, you are ready to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Flanders' Most Beautiful. You can choose between a half day package or a full day. With a full day you also visit the Ronde exhibition. Here you can learn everything about this legendary classic and its heroes.

All packages combine heritage and course, but during the tour 'In the wheel of the Flandriens' the emphasis is just that little bit more on the stage where the Ronde takes place. More of a fan of all the goodies that the Flemish Ardennes has to offer? Then is “Unknown is loved” really something for you! Would you rather see all the beauty that the Zwalm region has to offer with your own eyes? During the day 'Tours along and around the winding Zwalm' miss your eyes. And last, but certainly not least, there is the tour 'In style to the mythical Wall'. As you can see there is something for everyone. We are already looking forward to introducing you to this beautiful region.

Point of attention: The prices of these packages are valid from 30 people. The bus is provided by the group itself.
