Canoeing on the Meuse is a real treat. The cross-border Meuse Valley River Park forms for 40 km the border between Belgium and The Netherlands and is one of the biggest and most successful projects on ecological river recovery in Europe. It’s also the only part of the Meuse in the Low Countries that’s not extensively diked and stowed. The Rivier winds through a varied landscape with a jumble of old river arms, bank embankments, trenches and gravel banks.
The Meuse has a – by Dutch and Flemish standards – great fall, high flow speed and enormous dynamics. That’s why canoeing on the Meuse River can be quite exciting at times especially in the middle part where a succession of rapids forces any paddler to keep her or his guard. Other parts of the river have a more peaceful and tranquil quality giving you the time to enjoy the surroundings and the bird life and maybe spot a beaver.
