Taking a walk in the woods and through dunes

Enjoy the lovely nature reserves in and around De Panne. Be amazed by the vast Westhoek reserve, the fossil dunes of Cabour, the Oosthoek dunes, the Houtsaeger dunes and the Calmeyn wood.

Cycling and mountain biking

Fancy a weekend of cycling? De Panne and its surroundings offer plenty of charming routes, such as the Cobergher route, the Veurne-Ambacht route or the North Sea route. Another pleasant alternative is to go and take a look just across the French border.

Mountain bikers can also have a great time in the Moeren, in the Calmeyn wood and around the Hoge Blekker. The Paul Herygers route and the Ringslot route offer mountain bikers a wonderful trail in and around De Panne!

We are always happy to provide our guests with useful advice and collaborate with the local bike rental company. Cycling maps are at your disposal in our B&B!
