On the Transardennaise by MTB (Nord)
Mountain biking along a mythical route
Thanks to this stay and its variants, make the most of your holiday to cross by Ardennes by mountain bike from the East Cantons to the Semois valley. An unaccompanied mountain biking trip, with luggage transport!
La Transardennaise is certainly considered to be one of the great classics of hiking in Belgium. This major route, created in the 1980s, links La Roche-en-Ardenne and Bouillon in the Belgian province of Luxembourg. For some years now, this initial route has been extended to include a section especially designed for mountain bikes. Using this new northern stretch of La Transardennaise North route, you can cycle from Malmedy to La Roche-en-Ardenne by mountain bike. The way also passes through Houffalize, an unmissable town for mountain biking enthusiasts. Starting from Malmedy, this route takes you towards La Roche-en-Ardenne. It is then possible to follow the La Transardennaise GTA route as far as Bouillon.
