Why should I choose Belgium for my Hiking adventure?
It is not an obvious choice!
Hiking is probably not the first association you make when you think of Belgium (great beer and chocolate are probably higher up your list!), but the truth is that the country has lots to offer to those willing to discover its multiple national parks and even green areas in more urban spots. La Foret de Soignes, just outside of Brussels, is a great place to uncover the Belgian capital's greener side.
The coastal paths
With coastal paths that run for hundreds of kilometers, there is no better way to discover the Belgian coast than on your feet. Enjoy the fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean while you explore some of the most beautiful and tranquil spots in Belgium for a day or several days. You'll go home feeling re-energized!
The fairytale-like forests in Ardennes
Rolling hills covered in dense forests and peaceful little streams make up the Ardennes hiking country. Reconnect with nature but save some time to stop for lunch and enjoy some of the local delicacies. You may even be able to sneak in a visit to a chateau if you want to!

The route was beautifully chosen. Lots of variation and spectacular views. Vincent picked a gorgeous lunch spot for us, by the river. The river crossing was special. Intermediate level is the correct rating for this hike. Thf less experienced members of our group were slightly challenged but nevertheless enjoyed the day.
Une belle parenthèse à vivre ! Des vues étonnantes, que rien ne laisserait soupçonner, avec quelques traversées originales, cette randonnée reste un bon souvenir au côté de Vincent.
