Don't call it a ‘hike’, it's an adventure. An exciting, thrilling, fun-filled endeavour. More nerve-wracking than any pirate movie, more thrilling than all the ghost stories and more fun than any computer game.

You'll meet giants and gnomes along the way, pet cuddly rabbits and cute ponies, balance at dizzying heights and climb over hill and dale. The tours that we have put together for you here are full of joy for the whole family, for young and old alike.

But don't call it a ‘hike’ and don't call it a ‘walk’ either, as that’s not going to get our soldiers of fortune excited. These are adventures, exciting experiences for princesses and dragon slayers, for astronauts and aliens, for Little Red Riding Hood and wolves, but only those who eat a vegetarian diet.

Come along on these little escapes, let your imagination run wild, savour the experience to the full and tell everyone about your escapades later.

    Hoo hoo hoo! How spooky! On this tour, about halfway between Eindhoven and Mechelen, you will meet a host of fairytale characters. It’s likely to also be a bit spooky and you’ll have to be careful not to wake up Slapende Reus, the slumbering giant that gave the hike its name.

    Don’t let the title fool you: a walk through the Music Forest near Ronse is no more melodic than other walks. This is because, even though the name suggests song and music, it actually comes from the Celtic word for mud, sludge or mire.

    

    Children will perhaps have fun precisely because of this. When it

    Pirates, corsairs and other buccaneering types, take note! The Donkmeer near Ghent is one of the largest lakes in Flanders. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears out for the merry Klabautermann, this helpful sprite may just be singing his song on the water.

    Welcome to Resterheide, right on the border between Hechtel-Eksel and Peer. Whether you will actually see a heron, as the name of this route promises, we cannot guarantee. However, here at the headwaters of the Zwarte Beek and Bollissenbeek, you will certainly spot a variety of water birds and, if you

    Up and down, down and up. Welcome to Heuvelland. You'll quickly realise that ‘Heuvel’ means ‘hill’ without the need for a dictionary. And in hill country, this noun is an omen for what lies ahead.
