Nationaal Park Gravel Fondo – Ride into summer in Limburg’s gravel playground

Welcome to the incredible Hoge Kempen National Park, our country’s very first National Park. Adventure and nature go hand in hand here creating a unique gravel ride on Sunday 30 June. Be enchanted by the pristine splendour of this nature reserve as you ride on forest paths and winding roads. This gravel ride with its mix of challenging terrain, vast forests, big ponds, and breath-taking landscapes, will be an unforgettable experience for both the novice and seasoned gravel rider.

What makes this park extra special are the terrils, the impressive artificial hills created by old coal mines. The majestic terrils not only offer amazing views over the park, but also provide a unique contrast to the surrounding nature. Especially the iconic terril of Maasmechelen, with the most fantastic view in Flanders, steals the show.

Choose from a 55km, 95km or 125km route, and immerse yourself in adventure and nature on this magnificent ride. Sign up, get your gravel bike ready and let the adventure begin!
