In Belgium‘s largest lake district, de wijers, a unique path for cyclists has been carved by lens°ass architecten, with a nature conservation project of the surrounding ponds undertaken by burolandschap. The trail, which can be found in bokrijk, in between cycle junctions 91 and 243 is a 3 meter wide, 212 meter long cycle path. The path is designed to be under the level of the water, creating the attraction of ‘cycling through water’, and effectively establishing a fine balance between ecology and tourism. Through that path, you’ll be able to see, feel, smell and even touch the water. What an experience!

As part of the nature conservation project, the fauna and flora of the lakes have been restored. the green screen has been replaced by new lakes with an opportunity to experience the water via a plank bridge. All these changes aim to provide he perfect opportunity for nature-lovers to experience the historic lake landscape of the wijers.
