Scenic Cruising Scheldt River

The Scheldt is an important, 220-mile river that flows from France, through Belgium and the Netherlands to the North Sea at Vlissingen. It is the vital maritime link to the port of Antwerp from the sea. It has been exploited since the Roman era, and in later history is interlinked with canal systems and to other rivers including the Seine, the Meuse and the Rhine, providing a gateway to larger Europe.
