Walking the meres

Walking the meres

As you walk through the Turnhout Wetlands you will be amazed by the touching beauty of Mother Nature. In the northern Wetlands, you will find one of the most important heathlands of Flanders. It is the biotope of rare plants and animals that have adapted specifically to this environment.

The walk takes two hours.

How does it work?

Book a ‘Walking the meres’ walk at least three weeks in advance via Toerisme & UiT. With your reservation, indicate:

  • the desired date
  • the time of the visit
  • the size of your group (maximum 25 people per guide) and
  • contact details

The cost per guide is 50 euros (from the third hour 25 Euros extra per started hour). A one-off administration fee of 5 euros will also be charged.

It’s important to know for this walk that the guided tour only takes place in Dutch/Flemish. Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted. Sturdy walking shoes or, depending on the weather, boots are advised.

Toerisme & UiT secures the guide(s) and provides you with a reservation confirmation for the visit. Afterwards you will receive an invoice for the payment of the guide and the administration fee. Then you and your group go to the designated starting point for the walk on the agreed day and time.

In case of cancellation, you must inform Toerisme & UiT in writing at least six calendar days in advance. In the case of late cancellations, you pay the total amount and no cancellation restitution is possible.
