Join me for a beautiful day of hiking and nature photography in La Forêt de Soignes!

Sprawling over three Belgian regions, including Brussels, this is an ideal trip for people who enjoy cycling and who live in Brussels or travel here for several days and are looking to escape in the outdoors with a local for a few hours.

Covering more than 4.400 hectares, this UNESCO World Heritage site is mostly composed of beech and ash trees, but is also home to wildflowers and several animal species, including many different types of birds, roe deer and even wild boar!

Over the course of our day we will enjoy walking along well-maintained trails, through this shady forest and beside natural lakes.

We will take time to go over the best photography techniques for places, such as forests, which are challenging due to uneven lighting and exposure. You can also let us know what you would like to learn and we can tailor the perfect experience just for you!

So what are you waiting for? Book now and come for a thoroughly enjoyable hike along with an informative photography lesson here in the scenic Forêt de Soignes!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you might also enjoy my half-day mountain biking excursion in the Sonian Forest!

Mountain Leader

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!

What people are saying about Thibault



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.


Pour ceux qu’un stage/week-end organisé de Trail tente, je ne pourrais que vous recommander Trek Atout. Superbe weekend passé dans les Hautes Fagnes... 3 sorties trail sur des tracés magnifiques, super encadrement et top ambiance... plus que vivement conseillé ! Merci Thibault


Des parcours magnifiques, un we bien rempli mais juste ce qu'il faut, un niveau adapté, une guide au top et un chouette logement ! En résumé, un we inoubliable.


J'ai participé à la journée rando-photos à Bouillon ce dimanche et j'ai adoré! C'était super interessant, le cours etait très bien donné, la prof nous a super bien coaché durant la rando et l'endroit était magnifique!! Vraiment a faire!! Je ferai sûrement d'autres cours chez vous pour me perfectionner maintenant!


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).
