The bike itinerary continues along the Scheldt river towards Ghent, a dynamic university city with an important past, founded by the Romans at the confluence of the Leie and Scheldt rivers.

The boat will be anchored at a lock on the outskirts of Ghent. Dinner and overnight stay on board.

Day 6: Ghent – Bruges (45 km)
The bike stage will guide you through the beautiful Flemish countryside towards Bruges, also known as the Venice of the North, due to the many canals interwoven in the historic center.
