Boating holidays in Belgium

Ancient and rich architecture in historic cities are what your Belgium river cruise has in store for you!

Belgium is warm, welcoming and friendly. Travelling on a canal boat in Belgium offers you endless enjoyment from crossing the long plains of the Plat Pays, following the magnificent canals on cobblestones to discovering the famous red bricks.

Barging in Belgium offers you a distinctive experience in gastronomy with its artisanal beers, its hot and unique waffles, its renowned chocolate and carbonade, its beer tart, and to top it all off its famous French fries!

Its celebrated chocolate and lace compliment this perfect city break, and Belgium is welcoming wherever you go. Peaceful countryside and ancient towns are connected by Flemish waterways that weave their way through this tiny country's historic landscapes. 

During your boating holiday in Belgium, you will succumb to a rich and unique cultural heritage, with the finest Flemish cuisine and beer tasting from the upper deck of your barge.

A boat rental with Le Boat will take you to the heart of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking area of Belgium. The capital of this region is Brussels, which has a mixture of Latin and Germanic cultures, and it is also one of the headquarters of the European Union. This superb city has been enriched by the region's canals and rivers, which have enabled the cities of Bruges, Ghent, Leuven and Antwerp to become real commercial crossings, moving goods from Germany to France, England and Italy

Review for cruising in Belgium...

"The boat was well presented and clean, and the pre-trip briefing was excellent with a lot of useful information. As a seasoned boater, but using Le Boat for the first time, I was delighted with all aspects of our holiday in Belgium. Eleven days of 30°C heat and constant sunshine probably helped!"
