The Famenne is one of the most beautiful regions in Belgium for hiking. Situated on the borders of the Condroz plateau and the Ardenne, the Famenne offers a varied landscape where the Ourthe (which has its source in the Ardennes) and the Lesse have dug their beds. Europ’Aventure proposes you to discover this region thanks to this 3-day stay on a marked out itinerary designed by our partner GTA.
From the small village of Nassogne you travel 57 km in 3 days and discover Marche-en-Famenne, Verdenne or Hotton before arriving at the medieval city of La Roche-en-Ardenne.
The Transfamenne can also be combined with the first steps of the Transardennaise to create a 6-step loop. It is the ideal solution for a short walking holiday without too many gradients: marked trail (yellow/white), quality accommodation, luggage transport, guidance application and information about the region. Everything is planned so that you can make the most of the region and its beauties.
Hiking in freedom – Variable duration from 3 to 4 days – Departure all year round according to your availability and your possibilities.
3 jours, 4 jours, 5 jours
