Day trip on the Leie River
October 9 |10:00 am - 5:00 pm€75
Canoeing on the Leie between Astene and Ghent means looking inside the most impressive villas and country houses of Flanders. But it’s not just bon chic bon genre. The Leie is particularly picturesque and it is not surprising that its valley was the source of inspiration for many painters of the Latem School. Permeke, De Smet and Minne, they all used to live here.
The Leie is also an ideal river to practice your paddling skills. You are rarely alone on the water and motor boats and yachts come and go. Keeping your canoe straight on the stern waves is a great exercise to hone your paddling skills.
