A 39 km family trip by bike via Eke, Vurste, Baaigem and Munte to a wooded area named “Makegemse Bossen”. In the woods we find a couple of beds of bluebells and some secluded ponds that are among the few in the province where 5 individual species of salamander have been spotted. The WWII bunkers on the 40 m high sandy ridge of Munte are a nice playground for the kids and offer a fine view of the surrounding area.
Vinderhoute is a community to the northwest of Ghent that is surrounded by quite a bit of greenery and several castle grounds. The area is currently being developed for outdoor recreation. Last week, the central wooded zone was opened to the public, after having been acquired from a private land owner some time ago.
We make a 36 km family cycling & hiking tour that takes us from home to Vinderhoute and back, passing scenic sections of the Leie river around Drongen. In Vinderhoute, we explore some of the new hiking trails.
A 41 km cycling tour with the family through the foothills of the Flemish Ardennes, passing Nazareth, Wannegem, Lede and Mullem.
