The Maas and Limburg Tour by boat and bike takes you through a region situated in the foothills of the Eifel and the Ardennes along the river Maas. While it was once a duchy with a vibrant history, since 1830 it has extended throughout parts of Belgium and the Netherlands. The landscape is characterised by fruit trees and the cultivation of vegetables, it was also home to mining, especially coal mining, in the past. Limburg’s several bike paths offer some super cycling, while the region’s main culinary treats include asparagus, fruit cakes and the countless different types of beer.
Here you can find further details on the comfortable boat MS Miró.
