Ovelo itineraries

The honeycomb network of cycle paths at its best

The network of leisurely cycle touring routes in East Belgium is large, and thanks to the honeycomb system the tours can be combined with one another quite simply. But anyone not wishing to miss any of the highlights along the route should know about the special theme routes, above all the Ovelo cycle tours. These routes run in loops via the network of the honeycomb system and along neighbouring Ravel railway line cycle paths such as the Vennbahn. The only way in which the Ovelo cycle routes differ from the others is in their altitude profile and their length, which is between 30 and 50 km. They're ideally suited for day trips and show East Belgium at its best.
