Join Thibault, a certified mountain leader, for an intense but fun weekend of trail running the plentiful and scenic trails of the Ardennes region of Luxembourg.
* Explore up to 104 km of trails spanning over five trails.
* Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Luxembourg's Escapardenne Eisleck.
* Get to know a group of fellow trail runners over the course of the weekend.
Join me for an ideal weekend getaway in the beautiful and unspoiled wilderness of Luxembourg’s Ardennes!
Over the course of three days, we will run through the broad leaf forests, rolling hills and over the fast-flowing rivers that define this iconic low-country landscape!
On Friday, we will arrive at our cottage in the evening and go for a quick 17 kilometer run from La Roche to the Nadrin. Along the way, we will gain elevation and end up on an elevated plateau with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
On Saturday, we jump right back in with a 25-kilometer trail run through from Houffalize to Trois Veirges. Known for its deep valleys, forested slopes and mighty Rhine River, be on the look out for the spectacular ridge that connects one of these valleys to the other.
On our last day, we will do the final 20 kilometer run, connecting from Nadrin to Houffalize. Skipping around like this gives you a chance to experience these different locales separately before seeing how they all blend together on the final day.
Provided you are fit enough to keep pace, which is highly recommended, you are sure to have a blast making new acquaintances while exploring this idyllic part of the low countries.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for an epic weekend getaway and explore this beautiful region the best way possible – on foot!
If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my weekend of trail running in the Bouillon!

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.
Malgré une météo plus que mitigée, nous avons partagé en famille une belle journée bien préparée par Thibault. Le matin, randonnée sportive dans les bois de Villers-la-Ville, avec acquisition de quelques tiques pour les jambes nues ;-). Pause déjeuner dans un endroit réservé à l'avance par les bons soins de Thibault et adapté aux PMR. Puis, initiation au croquis au crayon gris, aquarelle ou fusain, avec les explications bienveillantes de Thibault. Commencée au sec puis prolongée à l'abri d'un magnifique chêne car la pluie était de retour. A nouveau, notre journée familiale a été très réussie. Merci à Explore-Share pour la qualité de ses propositions et des guides avec qui elle travaille.
A nouveau, ce fut une très chouette journée familiale. Nous avons apprécié Thibault et Nathalie (et leur adorable Sierra) qui nous ont imaginé un beau tour à vélo. Ils sont sympas et attentifs à ce que tout le monde suive. L'ambiance était décontractée et joyeuse. La distance était parfaite pour tous nos petits-enfants qui ont assuré. Le tour était adapté pour Inès, PMR, installée dans un buggy tirée par sa maman. Bon break le midi dans un restaurant spécialement ouvert pour nous. La journée s'est terminée par un jeu de piste bien préparé par Thibault. Merci pour cette organisation top (comme chaque fois).
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
