Highlights

 
  • Spend 2 days hiking through one of the most beautiful forests of Belgium.

  • Enjoy the gorgeous and wild Ardennes region.

  • Spend a night in a scenic bivouac (tent).

  • We take care of the transportation of your luggage.

 

For 2 days, I would like to help you enjoy the beautiful Ardennes region of Belgium. More specifically, I would like to help you enjoy the wonderful Saint Hubert forest (Forêt de Saint-Hubert). This area is full of great trails that you can spend hours making your way through. Moreover, this trip also includes a night in a scenic bivouac, in a tent.

Beginning in Givry, we will conduct a briefing and give you all of the documents you require for the day’s hike, including maps. Afterwards, you will get to enjoy approximately 5.5 hours of great hiking that will span approximately 19 kilometers. During the first day’s hike, you will get to admire the Herbegers plateau, the Laval valley, the d’Orti and the Saint Hubert forest. And at the end of the day, you will get to spend the night in a bivouac.

On the second day, after breakfast, when you’re ready to leave, just let one of our representatives know, and they will collect your luggage and equipment. From that point, you can enjoy another great day of relaxing hiking that will last approximately 6 hours, and cover just over 20 kilometers. You will pass by several villages on your way back to Givry. They include Tenneville, Baconfoy, Givroulles and Wyompont.

Your enjoyment and comfort are important to us. And on this trip, because we will take care of the equipment, as well as your luggage, your only concern will be seeing as much as possible and getting that perfect picture!

In terms of timing, here is how it’s going to happen:

  • You join me at our office before 10am with your picnic;
  • You hike throughout the day at your own pace with the map and instructions we will provide you;
  • At a specific point, you send us a message or you call us;
  • We join you at Golet, we set up the tent, light the fire and wish you a nice evening;
  • In the morning, we’ll pick up your luggage after your breakfast, we take back the tent and you start your 2nd hiking day;
  • When finishing your tour, you get back your bag and your car keys.

If that sounds like the kind of trip you want to enjoy, just send me a request. We would be happy to help you see and explore the Saint Hubert forest in the Ardennes of Belgium.

I also offer a longer, more extensive 7 day hiking and culture tour through the Ardennes as well.
