North Sea Port: a coach tour in Ghent’s sea port area

Straight through the industrial heart of the town

Welcome to North Sea Port, the 60-kilometre-long cross-border port area that stretches from Ghent tot Vlissingen on the North Sea coast in the Netherlands. On this tour you will learn all about the North Sea Port, the ‘access gate to Europe’.

More about this tour

A visit North Sea Port and  the sea port area around Ghent is always an exciting experience, but it is even more special with a guide. You will enjoy the sea port from inside and you will meet places that are normally not accessible… or even out of bounds! The guided coach tour will take you past docks and quays where dozens of international companies have settled. See with your own eyes how inland craftsmen maneuver with grain, coal, fruit juice, cars, chemicals, steel wood, oil products and building materials. Admire the gigantic grain silos and the quays where cargo is transshipped from one vessel to another. You will hardly know where to look first!
