The EuroVelo 3 International Conference “Cycling and Cultural Tourism: the perfect match”,
will feature two main plenary sessions with representatives from
international, national and regional governing bodies, tourism
organisations and project partners.
Participants will get the opportunity to look back at the main results of the project which initially kicked-off
back in April 2018 in Brussels. The programme will also feature several
parallel sessions on various cycling tourism subjects such as UNESCO
sites, route promotion and infrastructure. Some of the additional
evening activities include a walking tour in Santiago and registration
to the Conference is free.
On the second day, a bike visit will be organised
along the EuroVelo 3 section in Santiago de Compostela, a designated
UNESCO World Heritage Site in the northwest of Spain, known for its
EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route takes cyclists from Norway to Spain on a
5,100 km long exploration of Europe’s famous pilgrims’ routes and
religious buildings. For more information on the route, visit the ECF website.
There is a vast cycle network in Belgium and this charming little country alone has no fewer than five EuroVelo routes! Three of them are in Wallonia (EV3 – Pilgrims Route, EV5 – Via Romea (Francigena) and EV19 – Meuse Cycle Route) and they are part of the RAVeL network.
Discover the riches of the region whilst travelling along old railways, enjoy a foodie walk organised by RAVeL des BBQ and create your own plan using the map. There are lots of travel opportunities in Wallonia to delight outdoorsy families, such as cyclists.
