The komoot community is a pretty colorful bunch of people. No matter if the destination of your adventures is a distant peak, an idyllic cycle path or an extraordinary place for breakfast, you are welcome here.

Sharing your experiences, giving tips and making others want to set off and experience unforgettable outdoor adventures, just like the Pioneers, is especially fun. Our Pioneers are the most hardworking and inspiring komoot users in a region. The komoot Pioneers share their highlights, photos and tips with the community with their heart and soul. In return, they enjoy recognition and are also invited on an unforgettable "Pioneer Trip" like this one.

Over a long weekend, the four Pioneers Susanne, Michel, Frank and Roy went to Flanders, where they met in Bruges. From here, they cycled three and a half days through the Belgian hinterland and along the North Sea coast to De Panne near the French border. In total, they covered about 92 miles (148 kilometers) and had a lot of fun. On the way, they were explored impressive highlights like the Het Zwin and De Westhoek nature reserves. They also found cultural highlights in the historic cities of Flanders and along the coast, where there are many sculptures by various artists. And, of course, the four Pioneers also tucked into culinary delicacies in cozy cafés, rustic restaurants and relaxed beach bars along the way.

If you've now got an appetite for Flanders, then let's go. In this Collection, we show you the route of the Pioneer Trip so that you can experience a similarly unforgettable long weekend in Flanders. You can easily reach Bruges, the starting point, by train via Brussels or Antwerp. From De Panne, you can also take a train to return to Bruges. Each end point offers a wide range of accommodation and you will find plenty of cafés and restaurants along the way.

Have fun with your trip and don't forget to share your highlights and tips with the komoot community, because you can also become a Pioneer.
