Haspengouw is a slightly hilly region in the province of Limburg that is especially known for its spectacular cherry, pear, and apple blossoms in the month of April. Even though May has started, and early cherry and pear blossoms have already disappeared, apples and late cherries are still blossoming. Reason for this is the fact that this year’s month of April has been the coldest in 35 years.
We make a 20 km circular hike starting in Borgloon. Weather is quite unsettled and with a temperature of +11°C also not particularly warm, but the light is good and photographic opportunities are excellent.
