Walking in Kalmthoutse Heide

Walking in Kalmthoutse Heide

Grenspark Kalmthoutse Heide is one of the oldest and largest nature reserves in Belgium. It was founded in 1968 and now covers more than 1,000 ha.

We chose the 'Sheep' walk, the 2nd biggest walk the park has to offer.

 Starting point: De Vroente - Kalmthout End Point: De Vroente - Kalmthout
Height difference: None Distance: 8,5km

This beautiful 8.5km walk shows the diversity that the Kalmthoutse Heide has to offer. The trail goes through the woods, dunes, heaths and along fens. On the way, you pass the fire tower; a climb up this 25-metre-high tower offers a magnificent view over the vast Heide.

8,5km doesn't seem like that much and this walk is certainly not hilly, however you should definitely not underestimate it as there are some sections with loose sand and it is sometimes more difficult to walk.
