The province of Luxembourg covers an area of 4440 km2 and has approximately 264,000 inhabitants. This means that it is the largest province in Belgium and the smallest in terms of population. A hiking province par excellence where nature is still everywhere. The most famous rivers in the area are the Semois, Lesse, Ourthe and Sûre. Cities and villages such as Bouillon, Bastogne, Durbuy, La Roche-en-Ardenne, Houffalize and Vielsalm are definitely worth a visit.
The region of Arlon.
The Arlon region is at the crossroads of French and Germanic culture. The landscapes, between the forest of Anlier and the land of the slate, contrast sharply with the hills of Lorraine. In Martelange the nature park "Haute Sûre et forêt d'Anlier" is located. The vast forest of Anlier with its natural resources: green valleys with fish-rich rivers. With a bit of luck you can even listen to the burlen of deer. A wild, mysterious region, absolutely to discover.
The real Ardennes.
The region of Bastogne is located in the heart of the Ardennes, in the triangle Bastogne - Houffalize - La Roche, and in the most picturesque valley of the Ourthe, at an altitude of 450m. Quiet and relaxing region, landscapes, forests, sources, typical Ardennes villages and hamlets, ponds and vast valleys.
The region of Haute-Lesse.
In the Haute-Lesse region you can still find calm and balanced landscapes. The villages, forests and countryside have kept their rustic appearance from the real Ardennes. The Lesse is in the beginning nothing more than a big brook. At the height of the "Barbouillons" bridge in Daverdisse, the Our invades the Lesse and thus the Lesse becomes a beautiful, calm river to the delight of fishermen and hikers. The book village of Redu exists since 1984 and is world famous.
The region of La Roche and Houffalize.
This region is characterized by steep cliffs and deep valleys. Take a walk in the valley of the Ourthe near the reservoir of Nisramont, near the Hérou (classified upper courses). Discover a magnificent view of five meanders of the Ourthe from the lookout tower of Nadrin. The castle of La Roche watches over a loop of the Ourthe from its rock and mixes geography and history.
The Marche-en-Famenne region and Nassogne.
A real paradise for lovers of nature, hikers and other sports enthusiasts. This region, situated on the edge of the Ardennes forest and nestled between the valley of the Lesse and that of the Ourthe, has something for everyone.
The region of Ourthe and Aisne.
A rich history, the megalithic settlements of Oppagne-Wéris, the smallest town in the world in Durbuy, the beautiful caves of Hotton, Ny and Wéris, two of the most beautiful villages of Wallonia, the tourist tramway of the Aisne in Erezée, the domain of Hottemme in Barvaux, the Chlorophylle forest park of Dochamps and Riveo, the new discovery center for marine life in Hotton.
The Saint-Hubert region.
Saint-Hubert has a rich past such as the Abbey of Saint-Hubert. The forest of King Albert invites you to beautiful walks throughout the year, except for a few days during the hunting season.
The Valley of the Salm.
The valley of the Salm is a region located at an average altitude of 450 meters with the highest point of La Baraque de Fraiture, 652m in the municipality of Vielsalm. The land of the Salmdal is very well known to geologists, for the only natural grindstone of the world, the Coticule. If you want to know more about this stone, take a look at the grindstone museum in Salmchâteau or in the Archéoscope in Vielsalm. The municipality of Gouvy is more known for its nature reserves and for its typical church in Beho.n.
The region of Bouillon.
The asset of the region of Bouillon is still the castle of Godfried, which lies in a meander of the Semois, such as the landscape of the Tomb of the Giant and that of Frahan. The forests along the Semois, the Lesse and the Our are rich in wildlife such as wild boars, roe deer, hinds and deer that can sometimes be burlen. These forests have been used for hundreds of years by hikers who can enjoy beautiful hiking trails together with riders and mountain bikers.
The Gaume region.
The gently sloping landscape of the Gaume, which here and there is interrupted by deciduous forests contrasts with the deep valleys and the vast forests of the Ardennes. The Semois flows through the forest of Chiny, between Jamoigne and Muno. A visit to the abbey of Orval is certainly worthwhile. The Gaume is the region of the "Cuesta's" (hills that have an east-west location and therefore enjoy a lot of sunshine); one side is very steep and sharp, the other gently inclined.
