Flanders has made it easy to set out on a hike or go cycling from node to node. There is a whole network of nodes to help you plan your own hiking or cycling trip. You can also choose between various pre-defined routes. That way you’ll have nothing to worry about and can enjoy the beautiful landscape to the fullest. More experienced hikers and cyclists love to explore the long-distance or “GR” routes. All over Europe, such routes can be identified by their famous white and red and white or yellow stripes. Follow GR128 to cross Flanders from west to east or GR129 to travel from north to south. Flanders’ network contains nearly 5,000 kilometres of such GR routes, with seamless connections to paths in Wallonia and neighbouring countries.
