The program

Day 1

Namur (Profondeville) – Dinant

Welcome to the day of departure. On the outskirts of Namur, the relaxing atmosphere of the Ravel of the Meuse awaits you. You gradually enter the most beautiful landscape section of the Meuse valley, with its numerous cliffs and sumptuous sites such as the famous “Annevoie gardens”. You will then leave the RAVeL to gain some height and dominate the Molignée valley through country lanes.  Discover the neighbouring villages, they’re not just any old village!

The meanders of the Molignée are home to Sosoye, one of the most beautiful villages in Wallonia, with its typical limestone houses and listed buildings. Falaën and its listed farm castle!

You will continue your walk to the famous Maredsous Abbey, founded in 1872 and one of the most beautiful in Belgium! Take advantage of your visit to admire the architecture of the monastery and taste the famous cheese and beers of Maredsous!

After this moment of inspiration, take the road between meadows and streams to discover the “daughter of the Meuse”: Dinant, which gets its nickname from its particular location between the cliffs and the river. The town is literally wedged between the Meuse and the rocks, which gives it its charm. Don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in more than nine centuries of history by visiting the citadel!  Proudly overlooking the city of Dinant and the Meuse valley, it was built in 1821! By telecabine or on foot for the bravest, you can reach the top of this fortress, which offers a breathtaking view over the Meuse and one of the most beautiful valleys in Belgium.
