The ‘Transardennaise’ on bicycle
Cycling in the Ardennes
This GTA route linking La Roche-en-Ardenne to Bouillon will plunge you into the heart of the Belgian Ardennes in the Luxembourg province. Riding along the little country paths by bike/electric bike you will explore the valleys of the Ourthe, the Lesse and the Semois. Take 3 days to cover this 164km self-guided ride!
Go and explore the Belgian Ardennes, or the “authentic” Ardennes as some say. Thanks to a bike/electric bike (possibility of hiring them), by travelling alongside countryside paths and little forest paths you will combine the pleasure of cycling with exploration. Attentive cyclists will perhaps have the chance to see the animals that live in the forests.
The notable towns and villages that you will pass through include the medieval city of
La Roche-en-Ardenne, Saint-Hubert, the capital of hunting and nature, Daverdisse or even Bouillon where you can seen the ruins of a castle fort.
To have a worry-free trip, we will take charge of transferring your luggage from one night’s accommodation to the next.
