Enjoying the Leiestreek

Cyclists and walkers will love it here. Enjoy several wonderful cycling and walking routes through the river Lys area.


Wakken is part of the Leiestreek (river Lys area), between the cities Gent (Ghent) and Kortrijk (Courtrai). Even though the area has a lot to offer, it is still rather unknown tourist territory.

Cyclists and walkers will find this an exquisite location. Cycle Node Network route Leiestreek Oost en West (East and West) passes through Wakken. Walkers can go to the provincial area Baliekouter or follow the Neerhoekwandeling along old and new branches of the river Lys. The Baliekouter has a visitor centre and a cafe. Soon you’ll be able to take the new fruitwandeling (fruit walk) that leaves from there (8 km).

For those who like to discover the region with an experienced guide, a tour with one of our 'greeters from the Lys area' can be reserved. On demand, these volunteers guide you through the area (of your own choice), with some extra (historical) information.

Culture lovers can discover different museums in the river Lys area. You can combine walking and culture through the André Demedts (renowned Belgian writer) walking route. The museum is located in Sint-Baafs-Vijve -neighbouring village of Wakken- next to an old Lys branch with a picnic area. The Roger Raveelmuseum in the village of Zulte (Machelen) and the museum 'Deinze en de Leiestreek' are also in the neighbourhood.

At a 3 km distance from our B&B, there is a quay along the river Lys in Sint-Eloois-Vijve or in Deinze (+/- 7 km). During the summer months, you can board there for a boat trip. They offer day-, afternoon- and nocturnal trips, with the possibility of meals and drinks. For more information, such as dates and reservations, please visit

The provincial capitals Gent and Kortrijk are certainly worth visiting, or closer to our B&B, shopping city Waregem, or the cosy city of Tielt. A bit further south from Kortrijk, you encounter Rijsel (Lille, France) where you can spend another lovely day. The city of Ieper (Ypres)is about 50 km away from Wakken. This is a wonderful medieval city, and now the hub of First World War (’14-’18) commemoration tourism.

And then we have not even mentioned Canarus brewery in Gottem, Maenhout brewery in Meulebeke and ostrich farm Schobbejaks Hoogte in Tielt (visiting by appointment only, but certainly worthwhile).
