Ancient and rich architecture in historic cities is what your Belgium boating holiday has in store for you!  

Belgium is warm, welcoming, and friendly. Travelling on a canal boat in Belgium offers you endless enjoyment, from crossing the long plains of the Plat Pays following the magnificent canals on cobblestones, to discovering the famous red bricks. 

Belgium is welcoming wherever you go, and during your boating holiday, you can succumb to the country’s rich and unique cultural heritage. Peaceful countryside and ancient towns are connected by Flemish waterways that weave their way through this tiny country's historic landscapes. New to boating? Don’t worry, you don’t need training or any special licences to hire our boats — our boat driving guide can tell you more. 

Canal boat rental in Belgium with Le Boat will take you to the heart of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking area of Belgium. The capital of this region is Brussels, which has a mixture of Latin and Germanic cultures, and it is also one of the headquarters of the European Union. This superb city has been enriched by the region's canals and rivers, which have enabled the cities of Bruges, Ghent, Leuven, and Antwerp to become real commercial crossings, moving goods from Germany to France, England, and Italy. 

Boating in Belgium also offers you a distinctive experience in gastronomy. The country is famous for its artisanal beers, hot and unique waffles, renowned chocolate and carbonade, beer tart, and — to top it all off — French fries! Enjoy this cuisine in comfort on the upper deck of your barge.

Review for cruising in Belgium...

"The boat was well presented and clean, and the pre-trip briefing was excellent with a lot of useful information. As a seasoned boater, but using Le Boat for the first time, I was delighted with all aspects of our holiday in Belgium. Eleven days of 30°C heat and constant sunshine probably helped!"
