Icon description route Description

Water is never far away along this route. Polder roads and dikes lead us through a landscape that was partly sculpted by the sea, even if man did lend a hand. The clay soil that was brought in hides a lot of history, of which the creeks and wheels are silent witnesses.

TheSaleghem walking routeis offered to you byRouten, an initiative of Tourism East Flanders.

Friday, December 24, 2021 by Ingrid Waumanvery nice walk, done with gray weather but still you could see the vast polders. We started at the Turfbanken at Den Ouden hof, so that halfway we could enjoy a coffee at the Ijshoeve De Boey. Lots of little paths, which were not yet muddy.

Sunday, December 13, 2020 by Sonja van DongenDid this hike today and we enjoyed it. Beautiful views, nice roads and as icing on the cake a take away along the way where we had a delicious coffee and a jeneverke. Away from reality and cleared our heads.

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 by Lieve SaquetVery nice route, beautiful views! We did it with 2 baby carriages, which is not recommended although you can also follow the route mostly on the track. ;) In my opinion you do miss the most beautiful parts.
