In the 4,000-hectare Forêt de Soignes you’ll be surrounded by nature while only a few minutes away from the center of Brussels. Located on the city’s southeastern edge, it is a spot well-worth discovering in the company of a local guide, who can tell you all about the forest’s history, flora and fauna. Definitely worth a visit if you’ll be spending a few days in Brussels! And while you’re there, make sure you also check out the other parks and forests that make the Belgian capital a favorite among outdoor lovers.

First of all our guide was not Thibault as communicated initially but Nathalie. Already when in contact with Thibault communication wasn't smooth, he only replied via the platform days after the message with very short info. I had asked several times more details about the activity but I never got them...the day before I got a message from Nathalie just giving practical tips about clothes, meteo etc I was told that we would have had orienteering challenges in teams but on the day the guide was sending instructions to get to a point via smartphone (only to me) which was quite useless because I was the only one trying to find a way. On the other hand if she wanted to do something with smartphones she would have warned us in advance so that all colleagues would have had an active one and for exemple she could have sent the messages in a chat with everybody in. Anyway the best would have been to print out for us simple maps/instructions like the ones she had. All this should have been discussed and agreed with me/us in advance...otherwise it would have been far more interesting a simple walk with a guide that knows the history and characteristics of a place and that could tell us something (this was an offered option) interesting.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
