Highlights

  • Explore the beautiful Durbuy area of Belgium.
  • Trail run for either 25 or 50 kilometers.
  • See the beauty of the country's lovely Wallonia region.

Description

Located in the Belgian province of Luxembourg, Durbuy is a beautiful place. It is a great highlight in the popular Wallonia region of the country. Not very big, and with a sparse population, there is a freshness, an openness of the area. Thus making it perfect for a weekend of trail running.

Throughout this weekend adventure, which takes place in the spring blooming month of March, you will see a great deal of Durbuy.

In groups of no more than 10 people, we will have access to trails totaling 25 kilometers or 50 kilometers over the course of the weekend. The selection of trails will depend heavily on your fitness level, ability, as well as your desires for what kind of trip you want to have. And splitting up the weekend running, will be a comfortable stay in a local Inn or cottage. Equipped with a soft bed and access to delicious food you can enjoy in the evening and morning, you will be well rested and well fed for the second day of the trip.

With a lot of Belgium’s beautiful natural environment to see, this weekend trail running adventure in Durbuy is a great experience. You will get to immerse yourself in beautiful scenery. And you will get a lot of valuable exercise.

If that sounds like the kind of trip you would be interested in enjoying, just send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

I can also take you on a trail running weekend trip in Aywaille as well.

About the guide

Passionate about trail running, the outdoors and everything that nature provides to us, I got certified as a mountain leader by the Club Alpin Belge. I also work as a school teacher and devote my free time to my artistic pursuits.

Maps are another of my big passions. I collect them and spend hours looking at them and searching for the best itineraries in the Alps, the Andes, the Carpathians...and then I take you to explore them, running or walking.

My mission is to share with you the happiness that a high altitude lake can provide, the comfort that one can find in a rustic mountain hut and the excitement of walking along a mountain ridge. Looking forward to meeting you!

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.

The trip was fantastic. Beautiful scenery and landscapes together with majestic hills. We lived a camping lifestyle for two days which was very enjoyable and even though we were relieved to finish after a tough 2 day trek, we instantly missed the feeling of being in the outdoors and away from the city. Our guide Thibault was excellent. He was the perfect guide for the trip, so helpful and knew what he was doing - couldn’t ask for better.

Il y a juste deux petites semaines, j'ai participé à un weekend rando Trek Atout... Un superbe weekend ! Ok, la météo nous a fait un super cadeau : de la belle neige sur nos Fagnes! Mais tout de même, sans le "président" rien n'aurait été pareil ! Nous avons été accueillis comme des amis, Thibault nous a emmené sur des petits chemins et sentiers magnifiques, nous avons appris à jouer au whist, nous avons partagé l'apéro, Thibault nous a préparé une (demi)soupe sur un sol enneigé, nous avons échangé et beaucoup rigolé ! Je pourrais encore allonger la liste pour les non convaincus! ... Merci encore Trek Atout! (Depuis, je m'entraîne encore plus à la course à pied en espérant un jour faire un trail avec TrekAtout).

Bloc trail en Belgique juste magnifique. Quasiment 70 km et 2500d+. Une équipe au top dont Thibault nôtre guide agile de la carte qui a su nous denicher des parcours aux petits oignons. Nath aux fourneaux qui nous a concocté de très bons plats végétariens (et pourtant je ne suis pas végétarien). Bref une organisation sans faille qui nous a permis de découvrir des coins superbes. Un week-end à refaire les yeux fermés.
