The different regions in the Ardennes
Namur is one of the more popular regions of the Ardennes. Not only is the city of Namur with its citadel worth a visit, but you will also find a lot of other nice sights. There is also the pleasant town of Dinant. If you have seen everything above ground, then Han's cave system is definitely a must on your list!
The river Ourthe is the common thread throughout this region. The best known place is perhaps Durbuy, which is known as the smallest town in Belgium. La-Roche-en-Ardenne is also an absolute must if you are staying in a holiday home in this region. The castle and the pottery are certainly worth a visit, while you can taste the original Ardennes ham in the center. Do you have time left? Then be sure to spend a day in Bouillon.
In Liège you will find the highest point of the Ardennes and Belgium: Signal de Botrange. Another highlight, though not literally this time, are the waterfalls in Coo. A favorite with families with children, although the latter will in particular look forward to Plopsa Coo, the indoor variant of Plopsaland.
The Ardennes has something for everyone when it comes to activities. Do you want to explore the many cycling and walking tours, go on a survival in the woods or just enjoy the peace in a holiday home with a jacuzzi or sauna? Everything is possible!
The Ardennes are an inspiringly beautiful region that extends through leafy forests and mountainous hills with some of the most picturesque villages and towns in the middle. If you spend your vacation here, follow one of the many beautiful hiking routes to the most beautiful parts of the country. One of the most beautiful hiking areas are the High Fens, which are characterized by peat bogs, heath and grassland and forests. In addition, the Dam of Gileppe and the Semois valley are also an excellent choice for those who want to discover the Ardennes on foot.
If you want to explore the Ardennes a little more, cycling is a better option. The Ardennes have an extensive cycle network, so you can easily make an existing cycle tour or plan one yourself. The vast forests alternate with small charming villages where you can take a breather and enjoy a delicious regional dish or beer.
Rivers such as the Ourthe, the Lesse and the Semois are a favorite area for kayakers in the summer. Although these flows have few technical difficulties, they are a recreational way to cross part of the Ardennes. A kayak trip is a frequently chosen family activity as there are numerous kayak landlords located along the banks of the rivers. They also provide transportation.
Visit a brewery
Slightly less active than the above, but no less fun. Whoever likes a nice beer or trappist is in the right place in the Ardennes. The many local breweries are known for their delicious local beers. Blond, brown, double or triple, you name it! These breweries can always be visited so that you can learn about the brewing process. And of course the end result tasting is also in the tour! The Chouffe brewery in Achouffe and the Abbey of Orval are two of the most visited breweries. You can also have lunch there. Recommended!
Those who want to test their fear of heights - or just overcome it - can venture to climb the many rock walls that you will find in the Ardennes. The limestone rocks are ideal even for those who take their first steps in climbing. You will find climbing organizations scattered throughout the Ardennes where you can rent equipment and help you on your way.
For those who like the terrain a bit rougher than with a normal bike ride, there is also the possibility to go out on a mountain bike. Because of the hilly landscape and the many forests, the Ardennes are ideal for mountain biking. The nice thing about this activity is that you can do it all year round.
The Ardennes in the winter
The Ardennes are one of the few regions in Belgium where you can enjoy a beautiful white snow landscape during the winter. Not only does it count the only ski slopes in the country, but renting a holiday home is also an often-chosen option to spend New Year's Eve with family or friends. During this period you can also enjoy the cosiness of the various Christmas markets in Liège, Durbuy, Namur, and so on.
Those who stay in a holiday home in the Ardennes and want to be pampered culinary are lucky. The Ardennes have a lot to experience on a gastronomic level. Delicious smoked Ardennes ham, sausages and duck liver are just some of the delicacies that the Ardennes have put on the gastronomic menu. And what would all this be without a nice local Trappist beer? For example, beers such as the Lachouffe, Orval, Bellevaux, Ciney, Leffe and Bocq originate here in the Ardennes. In most of the breweries you can go for a tour and tasting. Another unmissable snack is the Liège waffle, a favorite among lovers of sweets.
