Are you ready for a unique perspective of Mechelen off the beaten path? Floating down the canals could be the answer with SUP boarding!

See Mechelen from a whole new angle. Mechelen is said to be one of the 5 major art cities of Flanders along with Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, and Leuven. These artsy cities bring in 3.6 million tourists. So while it is clear this city is recognised for its value in historical art and many more qualities, wouldn’t it be interesting to see it from a different perspective than these many other tourists?

That’s where SUP - stand up paddleboarding - can really get you that unique and memorable experience. This region of Benelux has no shortage of beautiful canals and boardwalks running through the cities, adding to that urban rustic charm.

  • SUP boarding is getting more popular in Belgium. Try it out in Mechelen’s beautiful canals with Pacific Supschool.

  • Charming canals: Mechelen has all the pretty canals you need without the tourist crowds of Amsterdam or even Bruges, which always has tons of boat tours. Get a quieter boat trip on a guided tour of Mechelen with your group.
