Join me on this amazing day-long hike in the Foret de Soignes and discover a different side of Brussels!

Both if you are from the city or in Brussels for a few days, this 5-6 hour walk across the Foret de Soignes is an experience not to be missed. Located on the southeast edge of Brussels, this 4,500-hectare forest is a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

Majestic beeches, ponds lost in the morning mist, trails that will make you feel like if you were in a fairy-tale… the forest is a real delight!

We will meet at the Hermann Debroux Metro Station (8 stops from Montgomery), from where we will start our walk. The hike will take between 5 and 6 hours. Halfway through, we will arrive to the magnificent Parc de Tervuren and its wonderful Arboretum. If you are interested, we can even visit the Royal Museum for Central Africa, located in the park, which has just been renovated.

The hike is open to everyone, regardless of age or fitness level. If there are children in the group or if you don’t feel like doing a day-long hike, I can also make the itinerary shorter. And if you are bringing the baby along, I can choose paths that are accessible for strollers. There is also the option of taking the tram from the Parc de Tervuren back to our starting point at the Hermann Debroux Metro Station.

This tour can be done year round, although the Spring is the best period. Please remember to bring an extra layer during the winter, rain protection and trekking shoes (preferably waterproof) are also required. And don´t forget your picnic lunch!

About the Guide

 
 

A tireless curiosity and a passionate interest for natural heritage led me to train as a Nature Guide with the Cercle des Naturalistes de Belgique. After that, I followed in the footsteps of more experienced guides and became a Mountain Leader, certified by the Belgian Alpine Club.

During our tours, I´ll share with you my knowledge about the nature and culture of the different areas we visit and will help you discover the joys of walking.

Pleasure, simplicity, respect and trust are the four ingredients of my personal philosophy. Join me and discover the most beautiful trails in Belgium.
