Description

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!

Engreux, Belgium

About the guide

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!
