On the Art trail in Condroz-Famenne
An original and fascinating discovery of the Condroz-Famenne region, unique in Belgium!
“Sentiers d’Art en Condroz-Famenne” is a 141 km loop punctuated by 42 works of land art in the heart of nature, created by Belgian and international artists. This exceptional hike crosses the communes of Ciney, Gesves, Hamois, Havelange, Ohey and Somme-Leuze. Various artistic and poetic shelters offer walkers the opportunity to rest for a few hours along the way.
Europ’Aventure offers you the opportunity to walk this marked trail (red rectangle with the inscription “Sentiers d’Art”) during a 65 km loop in 3 stages. You will have the opportunity to discover more than twenty of the exhibited works and you will stay in pleasant guest houses
Some small family circuits allow you to discover several works of art over 6 to 16 km and are not marked out. These small loops are detailed on the map.
Due to the size of the accommodation, the Sentier d’Art is only suitable for small groups (maximum 4 people) and is the ideal solution for all types of walkers: marked path (yellow/white), quality accommodation, luggage transport, guide application and information on the region. Everything is planned so that you can make the most of the region and its beauties.
