Family outings in the Grande Forêt de Saint-Hubert

Come and discover the “roaming holiday” with Europ’Aventure in the heart of one of Europe’s most beautiful forests.

You’ll enjoy a relaxed hike through the heart of the Saint-Hubert forest, following a signposted trail (mainly GR14 and Transardennaise). The trip is made up of 3 short stages, perfectly suited to families with children, novices and anyone wanting shorter stages.

This new itinerary, designed by Europ’Aventure’s teams, gives pride of place to the playful discovery of the forest.
