The Transgaumaise with the mountain bike

The Transgaumaise mountain bike tour is a splendid 148 km loop that takes you through the Gaume region, also known as “Belgium’s Little Provence” thanks to its sunny microclimate. It takes you on nature trails through some of the most beautiful villages in Belgian Lorraine, such as Torgny. You’ll also pass through France and discover some of the region’s treasures, such as the Notre-Dame d’Avioth basilica.

The trip begins in the heart of the Gaume region, in a small village near Virton (Belgium). You ride your mountain bike at your own pace and in complete freedom for a 148 km loop that can be completed in 2 or 3 stages. Stop off along the way to visit the Montmédy citadel, the Avioth church or the Renaissance houses in the village of Marville. Enjoy one of the world’s best beers with cheese after your visit to Orval Abbey.

The Transgaumaise mountain bike trail is a magnificent tour for lovers of a change of scenery: GPX tracks, quality accommodation, luggage transport and information on the region. Everything is planned so that you can make the most of the region and its beauties.

Free mountain biking – Variable duration from 3 to 4 days – Departures all year round according to your availability and possibilities.
