Product Description

Details

This guidebook describes 32 varied day walks and one longer route in the Ardennes, an area which lies mostly in Belgium but extends into both Luxembourg and France, with easy access from the English Channel ports. It's an area of beech and oak-forested hills divided by deep, winding valleys with wide, shallow rivers. Medieval castles and fortified farmhouses abound, perched above the villages. The walking possibilities are endless, all without the large height gains that are a feature of routes in the European Alps. Relics and museums of the WW2 'Battle of the Bulge' abound, a bonus for military history enthusiasts. Given the huge variety of other entertainments including kayaking, cross-country biking, even just playing at the water's edge, it's a great family destination. And there's the beer? This guide is illustrated with clear custom-made maps and contains lots of information about the vivid history of the area, as well as all the practical accommodation needed to plan a trip, including accommodation, food and drink and advice on when to go.
