Wandelroutes.org is a popular website offering walking routes in Belgium. For the Great War centenary a special page has been created for walking trails in the Westhoek area covering Ypres (Ieper) and the surrounding area including the battlefields of the Yser and the Ypres Salient.

The routes vary in distance and an itinerary of the key locations you will walk to is provided for each route. The information is available in English on the website, and has links to purchase cycling maps of Flanders online from Stanfords, the well-known map stockist.
