Both the Dutch and Belgian parts of the Limburg region are great for walking. If you’re looking for a wonderful hike in Limburg, then this Collection is for you. The Tours mostly take you through the border area between Belgium and the Netherlands, sometimes crossing from one country to the other. The Tours are easy to reach from both.

Here at VIVObarefoot, we’ve created this Collection so you can enjoy Limburg feet-first – with barefoot shoes you walk as naturally as possible, as if you’re going barefoot but with added protection. Using the biomechanics of your own foot, you feel closer to nature and improve the natural strength of your feet (up to +60% in 6 months).

That’s why the Tours from this Collection are not only beautiful walks with lots to see, but they have varied terrain, too. With our durable and minimalist shoes, you can feel every change in terrain right beneath your soles. You connect your feet with the ground and walk, run and hike naturally.

Whether you’re looking for an easy walk for the whole family, a route with little altitude to relieve your back, or just a Tour with a tough climb, you’ll find them here.

    Easy hike. Great for any fitness level. Easily-accessible paths. Suitable for all skill levels.

    The well-known 'white town' Thorn is located exactly on the border between the Netherlands and Belgium. The town itself is very nice to walk through, but during this Tour we save that for last. You therefore start this walk at the parking lot on the edge of the town and walk in a southerly direction

    This walk in the Hoge Kempen National Park was awarded the 'Premium' walking quality mark by the renowned 'Deutsches Wanderinstitut'. That is well deserved, because during this beautiful walk you will become acquainted with the medieval past of the Moated Castle and Pietersheim Castle.

    The Sint-Pietersberg is just a stone's throw from Maastricht. For example, a pleasant city trip can easily be combined with a hike with considerable altimeters. Therefore, allow enough time for this walk of just over 17 kilometers, because you also make more than 300 altimeters up and down again.

    It is wonderful to walk on the varied Brunssummerheide. You walk through coniferous forests and deciduous trees, but also vast open sand plains. You regularly pass fens and of course the namesake of this area blooms bright purple in late summer: the heath.

    Did you know that you can also go mountain climbing in the Netherlands? During this walk that starts in Vijlen in Limburg, you make a stop at Boscafé 't Hijgend Hert, which calls itself the 'only mountain hut in the Netherlands'. Then it must be mountaineering, right?

    This walk through the Geul valley starts at the old church in Epen. As with the old half-timbered houses in this region, the bottom of the church is made of sandstone. That sandstone was quarried in one of the many quarries around here. Special, because the Geuldal is the only place in the Netherlands
