• Bethoosterse Broeken

    The Bethoosterse Broeken walk explores two completely different landscapes in the vicinity of Esen (Diksmuide). You first walk in the higher area, south of Esen, where you have beautiful panoramas over the Westhoek. Halfway through the route you arrive in the Bethoosterse Broeken, a side valley of the Yser plain. You walk along the Handzamevaart, among other things. The area consists of low-lying meadows and hay meadows and is home to a unique fauna and flora.

  • Polder of Uitkerk

    Not far from the popular seaside resort of Blankenberge you find an century-old meadow landscape, the Polder of Uitkerk. Bordering the quiet polder villages of Zuienkerke and Nieuwmunster, this area is an oasis of peace along the busy coastline.

  • Pompeschitters Route

    The Pompeschitters route starts at the municipal domain 't Torreke. The name of the walk refers to the spot name that residents of Dadizele are called.

  • Stuvetjes walk

    The Stuvetjes walking route takes you through all aspects of a small village in the countryside: Stuivekenskerke. This beautiful and characterful village has a lot of treasures to offer, because it has seen just about everything in the last 150 years! During this walk you will get to know the Yser, the nature reserve of the Viconia Kleiputten, the former village center on the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwhoekje and of course the First World War.

  • The Blankaart

    Water is the keyword of this walk because the Blankaart lies in the heart of the floodable Yser Valley. After all, the name Blankaart refers to "Standing Blank". The Blankaart pond is a remnant of former peat extraction. In the area you will pass bird watching huts, lookout towers and a viewing platform. Depending on the season, there are so many different birds to spot that you will forget the time.
