Alain, UIMLA certified mountain leader, his wife Didi and their donkeys, are waiting for you to join them on this 2-day hike in Famenne, Belgium. Enjoy a beautiful hike and taste the local cuisine!


2 Days

Jun - Sep



* Discover the stunning region of Famenne, in Belgium

* Enjoy hiking with my friendly donkeys

* It's a fun activity for the whole family!


Famenne, in the south of Belgium, is a wonderful destination for a hiking weekend. Get lost in nature and enjoy this excellent break from your routine!

In the region of Famenne, in Wallonia, there are over 40 hiking trails. And in this occasion I propose to cover two of them! We will take a day to explore each one. Join me and my wife Didi for a beautiful weekend to connect with nature.

We will be accompanied with donkeys carrying our belongings throughout the hike. On Saturday night, we can spend the night camping in a beautiful environment, near a river or on a meadow. Alternatively, we can stay in a B&B if you prefer. We will enjoy some great cuisine! Each day at lunchtime we will stop in a beautiful spot for a tasty picnic, including some of the region’s specialties.

Some of my favourite trails include the forests of Marche, Grimbiémont, Waillet and Humain. I know these regions like the back of my hand, and will be happy to tell you all about them as we progress through our route. Be prepared to feast your eyes with the lush forests and beautiful rivers!

Each day hike will be of around 15 kilometers. Please note that there have to be at least 6 people to do this hike.

This is a great program for the whole family! Anyone with a basic fitness level can join.

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 Alain



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 !
