The Ardennes a place where many people come for a sporting holiday or maybe to just relax, read a book and enjoy the natural surroundings....
The Ardennes is so diverse offering forests, rivers, narrow canyons, caves, waterfalls and vast rolling hills. If you are lucky you might even spot one of the wild animals found here deer, wild boar, birds of prey or even a lynx? Understandably this region is a great for cyclists and walkers, but you can also find great places for canoeing, kayaking and skiing.
There are many traditional villages in this region, almost all of which have their own castle. The restaurants here are very good.
There are many monasteries, abbeys and subterranean caves that you can visit, such as Han and Remouchamps. In the summer months popular areas to visit such as La Roche, known as the 'Valkenburg' of the Ardennes. In Rochefort ( known famously for its beer) there are lots to see and do. Finally, make sure to visit the medieval city Durbuy, which is the smallest town in the world!
