Want to discover some beautiful Belgian landscapes with your friends and family? My wife Didi and I invite you to join us on our very special hiking tours around the Famenne-Ardenne area in Wallonia, Belgium.

What makes our hiking tours unique is that we will bring along our donkeys – Jeannot, Myrtille, Praline, Pepito and Charly – who will help us carry our lunches and will make the tour unique for both children and adults alike.

During our hike, we will tell you everything about this beautiful region that we know and love so much! And if you want, we can also prepare a picnic lunch for us to enjoy in the forest, including some of the region’s specialties, including wine, bread, cheese and cold meats.

Some of the stunning spots we can explore include: the Famenne area and Calestienne (Fond des Vaulx). The area is covered in lush forests and stunning rivers and makes for an awesome hiking location.

In total, we will hike for around 5-15 km, depending on whether you choose a half-day or full-day hike. We can even organize multi-day package tours that include all meals and nights in a bivouac or B&B. Don’t hesitate to ask!

Take into account that this tour is open to anyone with a basic fitness level who enjoys spending time in nature and discovering the local culture and gastronomy.

My wife and I will be happy to have you join us for a half-day, a full day or even multiple days of hiking around these beautiful Belgian landscapes. Send me a request and bring your family or friends along and enjoy a memorable time.

Mountain Leader

I have been in love with nature, hiking and orientation for more than 30 years. I like human contact very much and I truly enjoy what life offers us every day.

I’m an International Mountain Leader (IML) certified by UIMLA and I'm the President of UPMM (The Belgian Association Member of UIMLA). I used to work for the Belgian army as a Lieutenant-Colonel Commando-Paratrooper and I’m a member of the Belgian Alpine Club (CAB).

Together with my wife Didi, we organize hiking tours with a few donkeys that we own. Join us with your family or your friends, for a half-day, a full day or even several days. These hikes are unique and accessible to everyone.

It will be my great pleasure to guide you around some of the most beautiful spots in Belgium or in the mountains, all year around, hiking or snowshoeing. Please contact me via the programs I propose and let’s start planning together!

What people are saying about this trip



Journée en famille à tous points merveilleuse : activité adaptée à tout le monde, personne PMR et chiens de la famille plus ou moins sages... Dès l'accueil, nous avions compris que la balade s'annonçait au mieux. Alain et son épouse Didi sont didactiques, très relax tout en restant attentifs à chacun et s'adaptent parfaitement à leur public. Le pique-nique très soigneusement préparé par leurs soins était juste plus que parfait et savoureux. Nos petits-enfants, plein d'énergie, ont profité de chaque arrêt pour grimper, sauter, explorer, jouer à cache-cache, tout cela sous le regard bienveillant des adultes. Très belle expérience que nous recommandons sans hésiter !
