WEST FLANDERS, A PLEASURE FOR BALLOONERS

FROM THE COAST TO THE SCHELDE, WEST FLANDERS AT ITS FINEST

The diverse but mostly flat landscape is typical for West Flanders. That is why a balloon ride above this region is a true delight for the eye. In the north of the province, departure from around Bruges is a highly appreciated topper.

Or do you prefer to take a peek at the hills near the French border? With a flight over Poperinge, Ypres and the battlefields of the First World War? An impressive scene and definitely worth a passing with a hot air balloon. Just like the woods near Torhout and Wingene. Along the axes Wervik – Menen – Wevelgem and Kortrijk – Harelbeke – Waregem, you can enjoy rolling fields. And the banks of the Leie. Further down lies the Scheldt basin with picturesque towns such as Avelgem, Kluisbergen and Anzegem. 

When it comes to ballooning, West Flanders has something in store for everyone.

WORLD WAR I FROM ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE 

The battlefields of World War I in the West of the province of West Flanders are all the more impressive. From a hot air balloon, the effect is even more magnified. It is only in the air that you get an idea of the number of military cemeteries. Heuvelland, Ypres, Poperinge, Wijtschate, Passendale and Zonnebeke are literally buried under them.

Their size is also best visible during a balloon ride. Moreover, the landscape is spotted with crater lakes, remains of trenches, bunkers and other reinforcements.

They constitute an extraordinary form of historical views. An attraction that is easy to observe in this region of West Flanders from a hot air balloon.
