Bruges a Paris ou Paris a Bruges

Bélgica, França Passeio de Bicicleta e Barco

Pedale na Bégica e França!

  • Este passeio incrível de Bruges a Paris e vice versa o leva por estradas rurias, vielas de vilarejos, trilhas pavimentadas de florestas e até estradas de paralelepípedo.

    Você pedalará na Bélgica e França, e curiosamente, na Holanda também, já que a parte de cima do rio Somme já pertenceu a Holanda. Por isso o símbolo nacional da Holanda (leão), está presente nas banderias de ambos os países.

    Picardie é o nome da próvícia ao norte da França. Já foi o berço do estilo Gótico, mas hoje é mais conhecida pelas cicatrizes da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Em praticamente todas as cidades da regição há memoriais da guerra. Você visitar o museu da guerra em Perrone.

    No passeio por Paris, passará pelos belos e verdes surbúbios parisienses chamados de "banlieues'. Pedalar por Paris se tornou mais fácil nos últimos anos com a instalção de ciclovias pela cidade.

    Não esqueça de verificar nossos passeios de Bicicleta e Barco na França.

Bruges a Paris ou Paris a Bruges Map

A BORDO DO  FLEUR:
ABAIXO ESTÁ TAMBÉM O ITINERÁRIO DOS DEMAIS BARCOS!

Paris a Bruges

Dia 1: Chegada em Paris
O embarque em Paris a bordo do  Fleur será no Port d’Arsenal localizado no meio da cidade, próximo ao Place de la Bastille. Ao embarcar, você terá uma bebida de boas vindas, apresentação da tripulação e um delicioso jantar. Após o jantar, terá tempo suficiente para uma caminhada na cidade. 

Dia 2: Paris - Auvers-sur-Oise, 22/29 mi. (36/48 km)

Durante o café da manhã, o barco navega pelo centro de Paris passandos pelos famosos pontos turísticos como o Louvre, Musée d’Orsay e a Torre Eiffel. O passeio de bicicleta começa logo após o café da manhã até La Défense and St.Germain-en-Laye. Ao chegar, você sobe o palácio e do jardim terá um vista esplêndida da cidade de Paris. Em seguida, você passa por Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, onde o Oise e o Sena se encontram. O destino final é Auvers-sur-Oise, onde Vincente van Gogh passou seus últimos dias e onde está enterrado. Esta região era amada por muitos pintores impressionistas. Após o jantar, aproveite a caminhada pelo cemitério de Van Gogh.

Dia 3: Auvers-sur-l'Oise - Creil, 22/34 mi. (35/55 km)

Começando em Auvers, você segue o Oise. Durante o passeio de hoje, você passará pela abadia de Royaumont e depois Chantilly, com seu famoso castelo, também famoso por corrida de cavalos. O destino final é Creil, uma cidade interiorana, que no século XIX era famosa por sua cerâmica.

Dia 4: Creil - Compiègne, 22/34 mi. (35/55 km)

Durante o café da manhã o barco navega por Pont-st-Maxence, cidade de reis e comerciantes, o passeio de bicicleta começa aqui. Passará pela abadia de Moncel, fundada em 1309 pelo rei Felipe de Schone. Antes de chegar a Compiegne, destino final, pedalará por florestas ao sul da cidade, onde a realeza gostava de cavalgar. Uma visita ao Chateau Compiè com seu jardim magnífico é recomendada.

Dia 5: Compiègne - Chauny, 24/37 mi. (38/60 km)

O barco continuará seu trajeto agora pelo sistema de canais que conecta a França e a Bélgica. O pedal vai pelas florestas de Compiegne e de “Clairière de l’Armistice”, lugar onde os generais da França e Alemanha assinaram o fim da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Em seguida, cruzará os rio Aisne e pedalará pela floresta de Ourscamp. Encontrará o barco novamente em Chaunygne, com seus jardim maravilhosos que valem uma visita.

Dia 6: Chauny - St. Quentin, 24/33 mi. (40/55 km)

O barco continua pelo antigo canal de St. Quentin. Construído por Napoleão, este charmoso canal ainda respira paz e tranquilidade como lembranças de uma era de rica navegação. O passeio de bicicleta segue para a região de Somme com seus pequenos vilarejos. O destino de hoje é a adorável capital do Aisne, St. Quentin que nasceu de uma junção de estradas romanas. Vale visitar a basílica Gótica e o prédio da prefeitura com suas fachada Gótica flaboitante. 

Dia 7: St. Quentin, dia de descanso.

Hoje o Fleur fica ancorado em St. Quentin. Você pode participar de uma excursão de ônibus aos campos de batalha da Segunda Guerra no vale do Somme. Ou apenas passar pela cidade. 

Dia 8: St. Quentin - túnel de Riqueval - Honnecourt, 24/39 mi. (40/65 km)

O canal de St. Quentin was construído por Napoleão. Devido a diferença de nível, em alguns trechos foi necessário construir túneis. O mais longo é o de Riqueval, com 5670m. O barco passará pelo túnel puxado por rebocador movido a eletricidade levando aproximadamente 2 horas para completar a travessia. O túnel é um pequeno museu. A partir daí a rota se torna descendente e termina na vila de Honnecourt.

Dia 9: Honnecourt - Cambrai - Pont Malin, 21/36 mi. (35/60 km)

Após o café da manhã, o passeio de bicicleta segue para a abadia de Vaucelles e depois continua a cidade de Cambrai, no passado uma capital romana e um importante destino de perigrinação. Em 1677 Cambrai se tornou parte da França. Vale a pena uma visita às construções restauradas da fortaleza da cidade construída por Carlos V. Os antigos portões da cidade datam de 1300. Pela tarde sairá do canal de St. Quentin e continuará pelo Canal du Grand Gabarit até Pont Malin, onde pernoitará.

Dia 10: Pont Malin - Doornik, 27 mi. (45 km)

O barco seguirá pelo canal du Grand Gabarit por uma antiga área industrial onde minas antigas e locais de fabricação de aço podem ser avistados. O pedal segue o roteiro a Santiago de Compostela. O barco cruzará a fronteira da França em Mortagne e depois em Bleharies, cruza para a Bélgica para então navegar pela região chamada de "terra branca" com a charmosa fortaleza da cidade de Antoing no coração da região. Agora em Wallonia, onde todas as cidades e vilarejos têm nomes franceses e flamengos. O destino do dia é Doornik (em Francês: Tournai), uma das mais antigas cidades da Bélgica. Há vários museus que merecem uma visita. O centro da cidade foi destruído durante a Segunda Guerra mas hoje encontra-se restaurado. A catedral de Notre Dame (séculos XII e XIII) e a de Belfort valem a pena uma visita,

Dia 11: Doornik (Tournai) - Oudenaarde, 27 mi. (45 km)

O barco navega o rio Scheldt e entra na região flamenga. O destino é Oudenaarde. Antigamente ficava na fronteira entre a França e Alemanha e por isso estava sempre envolvida em guerras. O prédio da prefeitura, construído em estilo  Brabantine Gótico é um dos mais belos prédios de prefeituras de Fladers. Oudenaard é também conhecida por seus tapetes. Com tempo, é possível uma visita a uma das famosas cervejarias da Bélgica chamada de Liefmans.

Dia 12: Oudenaarde - Ghent, 21 mi. (35 km)

O barco continua no Scheldt até Gehnt, uma animada cidade universitária e com uma rica história. Muitas das construções dos tempos áureos do comécio têxtil foram preservada. Em Lakenhalle (1425), os comerciantes de tecido se encontravam. A igreja mais importante é a catedral de St. Baafs que foi construída em séculos diferentes com diferentes estilos. Dentro da catedral há várias obras de arte, sendo a mais famosa  "Adoração do cordeiro místico" por Jan van Eyck. Você pode fazer um city tour de barco ou uma visita ao castelo antigo da cidade.

Dia 13: Ghent - Bruges, 15/30 mi. (25/50 km)

Hoje o passeio de bicicleta é pelo agradável interior de Flanders Ocidental até Bruges. Bruges é também conhecida como a Veneza do Norte, e provavelmente é a mais bela das cidades flamengas. O antigo centro que data da Idade Média está completamente preservado.

Comentário do cliente

  • Richard N. 4 days ago

    The scenery! The food! The guide, chef, and captain were wonderful. Eight cabins, 16 people. The perfect size group. We did the 2 week ride from Bruges to Paris. I would definitely do one of these trips again!

  • Lynn S. 1 week ago

    Lovely scenery, experiences and meals at the end of the day.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Warren S. 2 weeks ago

    Very enjoyable trip! Great accommodation, great cycling and great crew & guides.

    Boat: Fleur

  • Eric D. 2 weeks ago

    First time I've had an art historian/architecture teacher as a tour guide. Geert was wonderful and enriched every stop.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Rod C. 1 month ago

    Everything was memorable, the other guests, crew, routes, guide, barge and food. 14 days with a break in the middle was just right for timing.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Marg E. 1 month ago

    You will not really see France and Belgium unless you cycle. This way you go through villages and towns and farms, see cathedrals, castles and even the grave of Van Gogh. The routes take you on forest, bike and tow paths, roads and cobblestones. Enjoy picnic lunches in church grounds, pubs, cafes and gardens. You will enjoy evening night walks after a delicious three course meal.
    If you don't think you can do it, you can!

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Martin C. 2 months ago

    We were fortunate enough to have Tripsite founder, Hennie, along, who led half of our group on a terrific cycling adventure between Paris and Bruges. We made wonderful friendships and were treated royally on board the Zwaantje by the crew - and what wonderful meals!

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • David B. 2 months ago

    Most Memorable Part? Cycling thru the small Villages of the Somme with good riders lead by Hennie.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Pierre S. 2 months ago

    The two-week trip on the Zwaantje from Paris to Bruges was awesome! The crew of the ship and the tour guide were exceptional. The food, prepared by Frank, was consistently top-notch and interestingly varied day-to-day. Our guide, Geert, provided us with an excellent selection of sites, of which he had encyclopedic knowledge. The captain, Martijn, was also very engaging with the guests. Daily rides were easy to occasionally moderate, providing us with a satisfying riding experience. Almost all of the riding was in open country or small, rural towns, which we loved. However, riding in and out of the larger towns, while of necessity, did present some typical urban challenges to the bicyclists. Overall this trip is highly recommended. Pierre and Laurie

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Kathleen S. 2 months ago

    I broke my wrist while half way through the trip. Everyone was very kind and supported me to make sure I was included in most activities.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Gary F. 3 months ago

    Great trip, great barge, well organized, a list of fellow passengers for each cabin would have been helpful from the start
    Keep in mind the MPS Zwaantje does provide hairdryers for each cabin, provides WiFi- a truly upscale barge.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Pauline J. 3 months ago

    The crew of the Feniks, provided the most amazing experience. The food simple satisfying and enjoyable. Food fresh, tasty, and cooked well by the Nelje. Marius and Reinhold, provided amazing care of all our needs The accommodation small, efficient and clean. You always slept well. The guide Nina with her amazing knowledge showed us her secret places, backroads, canal paths, and bike paths. She encouraged all riders while challenging us beyond what we thought we could do. As a experience it exceeded my expectations. Looking for a different French/Belgium experience do this trip you never forget it. Will do another trip this way, and if possible on the Feniks...

    Boat: Feniks

  • Jillian M. 5 months ago

    The experience of being able to see the countryside, remote villages and sites at a slower pace with the experience and knowledge of a guide is the highlight. It is good to leave your luggage onboard the barge and know you return each evening to great food and rest.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • August D. 5 months ago

    It's a shame that the incompetence and the misogynistic attitude of one person can affect what could have been a fantastic trip, our guide on several occasions got lost and we ended up doing many more kilometres of riding including a very long and steep hill climb that we had to walk in the hot sun.
    I can not praise the Captain and crew of the Zwaantjie more highly it's a shame he has no control over the guides that are allocated to various trips.

    Boat: Zwaantje

  • Margie A. 11 months ago

    The Elodie bike/barge trip was fabulous in terms of scenery, routes, staff, food. However, 2 couples on the barge were not able to keep up with our very leisurely pace. I would advise your company to stress level of fitness for participants, and also to recommend 2 guides for different ability levels.

  • Angela R. 11 months ago

    The whole trip was great. Other passengers on the barge were great, weather was good, one couldn't ask for anything better. The Tripsite staff were extremely helpful and I have always found them to be most professional.

    Boat: Fleur

  • Michelle H. 11 months ago

    Most Memorable Part? The scenery & the crew from the Feniks.

  • Rodney W. 12 months ago

    Most Memorable Part: The friendliness of the local villagers and our fellow travellers.

    Boat: Elodie

  • Richard N. 1 year ago

    Most Memorable Part: Riding through the small villages from Bruges to Paris. Nina was a great guide also. I really enjoyed the night walks for a better inside view of village life... the Van Gogh experience was the highlight for me.

    The trip was excellent, as attested by this being our 4th one. We will definitely be booking more. The route was good, although France lacks the same quality of bicycle paths that Belgium and The Netherlands have. There was a bit of climbing and some of the women in the group were very happy to have an electric bike option for those climbs. The barge was very clean and quite nice. The staff was excellent and really made you feel as part of the family. They went over and above for most everything. The food was very good and plentiful. The highlight of the Brugge to Paris ride would have to be Chantilly and entering Paris on the barge. The sights were incredible and seeing them from the water gave a whole different experience. The guides were great and the system of having "corners" and a "sweep" meant that no-one got lost and we could still ride at different paces. I am convinced, and I tell this all the time to anyone who listens, that these bike/barge trips Read more… are the best value for your money, period. There is no better way to see a country, than by bicycle.

    The food was great and loved the coffee machine. Would like dinner at 7:00 pm rather than 6:30 pm to give us more time to relax and enjoy the day. No one ever eats in France before 7:30 pm and I felt like we were being treated as young campers. The Fleur needs new towels. The existing are rough and not vey absorbent. It was a very happy and congenial crew. Bert, Petra, Ellen and Aga. Thomas was most accommodating... Bike trails were good. We had the unusual situation where the majority ie 12 out of 20 bikers were of Olympian caliper. Their preferred speed was 30 to 35 kms an hour and the rest would have liked between 15 and 20 kms. and hour. We all coped but it meant you couldn't relax and enjoy the scenery. Two guides would have been the solution as promised.

      Hi Delia!
      Thanks for sharing this feedback. I want to clarify that under what's included for the Fleur it mentions "Tour guide (in 2018, there will be two guides)". This will allow for two groups, different cycling speeds, and will fix this issue.
      As far as dinner is concerned, the eating time is based on the logistics of the ship (routing, cooking, cleaning) and is not meant to make you feel like a young campers.
      Despite this issues, I'm glad you had a great time!

    The excellent staff and guide combined with the great mix of rural and forest countryside and the history in the cities and towns along the way.
    Tripsite should do a better job of editing the text on their website. There were several incorrect descriptions.

    The bike & barge trip from Paris to Brugge on the Feniks was an amazing experience. The crew was exceptional, the scenery beautiful and the price was terrific. I highly recommend this trip.

    The Zwaantje and crew are top notch, and present a great value. Some of the routes in northern France had a little too much traffic. Riding in Belgium and Netherlands seems nicer. Once is enough for this tour.

    Most memorable part? There were so many, but Chantilly Castle and the Montmontre area of Paris that we had a tour of immediately come to mind. Make sure that you can ride a bike and can manage at least 30 miles on a route with the same level of climbing, otherwise use an e-bike to help you along. Bring 2 pairs of street shoes, as some days they might get wet. Remember that there will be an opportunity to leave a tip at the end, and it should be about 5-6% of the booked price. Drink wine and beer, talk to people, don't be shy about anything and remember to have fun.

    Wide range of scenery and experiences especially going on the barge through the tunnel and excellent guiding by Fred.

    The overall experience of the barge & bike tour through wonderful countryside, villages & towns was excellent. The barge skipper/owner & staff were very good & most pleasant. The meals were of a high standard & variable throughout the two weeks.
    The bikes were also very good. I had ordered an electric bike with our booking but the order did not go through. However, the ordinary hybrid bike provided did the job so I happily stayed with that.
    We were also to have a double bunk, but that request did not get through either, but that was OK.

    Two items that were not as expected.
    The literature states two guides but there was only one guide. This means there could only be one guided ride per day. So provide two guides or change the description of the trip to say only one guided ride per day.
    Our pre-trip information provided a location for the where the barge would be moored in Paris. We selected a hotel near this location and planned activities based on this location. The boat did not dock at this location. We were not told that the location was changing. The boat docked. We didn't know where we were at and our guide also didn't know where we were at. Guide was very good. This was an issue with the boat captain.

    Needed the second guide as group unwieldy for one. Unlike prior trips, guide gave little info on trip sites/locales, despite being quite personable.

    This was a fun trip full of historic sites. Would have liked to have maps so we could go off at our own speed sometimes. The side trips for additional mileage were great. Got to ride some of the "Tour de Flanders" route with cobbles and hills. Chantilly was fantastic! Also took a side adventure to a roman ruin, something we weren't expecting in that part of France.

    We did the bike barge trip from Bruges to Paris on the Zwantjie. We would absolutely recommend the trip. Our comments are:
    1. While the cabins are small, they are still adequate and good layout in the bathroom ( each cabin has it's own) . They are kept very clean. They all have AC as the porthole does not open.
    2. The rides was rated easy to moderate. It was MUCH harder than Bolzano to Venice so be prepared. I would say it should be rated moderate. The second week is easier than the first - perhaps due to improved fitness but also l think there are less hills.
    3. Meals were good and wholesome.
    4. Staff were incredibly obliging. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Martyn ( the Captain ), Michael ( mechanic ), Chris ( chef/cook ), Gosha ( amazingly efficient at serving meals/alcohol and cleaning the cabins ) and our great guides, Christain and Elia.
    5. Size of about 24 riders is excellent. For us, better than say 30-40 as on the Ava Maria. You get Read more… to know all the riders are we had a great group of people, Australians, Americans and Poms.
    6. When we stayed in Perrone we went to Villers Bretonneux. This is particularly relevant to Australians - whose troops saved the town from the Germans in WW1. A stunning memorial site -very moving. We also rode through a number of memorials to WW1 victims. Also quite moving.

    Accommodations were too small. The rest of the journey made up for lack of space. No room to put our belongings.

    • Jehiel 2 years ago

      Hello Gloria,
      Sorry to hear the Elodie was too small in your opinion. France is known for it's narrow canals so as a result the ships have to be smaller in order to navigate the waterways. We provide information including dimensions and note "... storage space is limited in the cabins". You can find more information on the Elodie Boat Page.

    What stands out is the friendly competent crew - Coba, Marianne and Petra, the gourmet chef - Franco, the experienced knowledgeable guides - Piet and Wouter. Together they made the two week journey both comfortable and memorable.

    We had a fantastic trip on the Fleur, It was well above our expectations.
    The crew were fun and helpful in every way. ( food was excellent )
    Bikes were easy to ride, i would take a gel seat cover for extra comfort.
    Cabins were bigger than expected and the bathrooms clean with a instant hot water.
    Our guide was informative, she took us into places that you would not normally enter.
    We had a fun team of riders, thanks guys from the Smurfs xxx

    Nearly everything excellent. The only downside was the cycling was promised to have the option of two different rides each day i.e. a long or a short ride with two different guides. There was only one guide so both options were compromised into one medium length ride each day. Many on the tour would have preferred a longer ride most days.

    We had brand new bikes and the guides had to spend most of their early evening time adjusting the bikes (Brugge to Paris trip) but in the end got all the bikes adjusted so they all ran well. All the boat staff and guides were fantastic.
    Love your trips-must do more.

    We highly recommend the Paris to Bruges bike and barge on the Elodie but one must be a strong cyclist as there are hills. The food was really excellent. Comradery among the group was high, and that's one of the great aspects of the trip.

    I recently enjoyed the Paris to Bruges bike & barge tour and I loved it. The crew were fantastic, the service was excellent and the daily ride with a wonderful guide was great fun. It was one of the best travel experiences. Thanks to everyone on the Elodie for the ideal holiday. (I was on the 30th Sept 2012 trip)

    This was the best way to enjoy Europe combining bicycling through painting-like landscapes on a well balanced tour of culture, history and fun with a fantastic caring crew and fabulous food! The addition of a dozen Australians made it even better; and barging into Paris on a sunny afternoon with a glass of wine was divine. We're booking again in 2013!
