The S.A.T. (Trappist Abbeys Trail), created in partnership with the Walloon Region, is the first thematic itinerary of the Association of Long Distance Walking Trails. Entirely marked out, it can be done at your own pace, according to your mood, your form, the weather… alone, with your family, with friends, whenever you want. The “Sentier GR des Abbayes Trappistes de Wallonie” links the three Walloon abbeys where Trappist beers are brewed. The route is divided into two sections, from Chimay to Rochefort (174 km) and from Rochefort to Orval (116 km), for a total of 290 km. The trail follows the different marked sections (on GR) or (on GR de Pays) described in both directions.
Five separate topoguides describe in full the GR and GRP partially used by the S.A.T.
This trail takes hikers from abbey to Trappist abbey, including the discovery of their most famous beers. This is another opportunity to set off on the trails of Wallonia to discover the products and heritage of the three Trappist abbeys. Products of our soil that the whole world envies us! The Walloon Trappist beers are listed as cultural and intangible heritage by Unesco.
