Trip to Parc Furfooz and Gendron-Celles

Belgium is a flat country, with its highest point only 600+ meters. Where I live is mostly flat, in the South of the country, you see some rocky mountains (hills but for us it’s already mountain). It doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful though. I like the Ardennes in general, great to walk in the forest along the river. It’s my first time to visit the region Furfooz and it didn’t disappoint me. Will probably return next time I visit Wallonia.

Furfooz

Idyllic Wallonia village, quaint and quite empty. Near the castles and Parc Furfooz, easily spend a weekend discover the region. A few farm houses have turned into airbnb, nice town to overnight if you plan to visit the region.

My rating: 7/10









Aiguilles de Chaleux

Beautiful view point: rocks, villages and the Lesse river. The road from Furfooz was half unpaved, some people come here horseriding, seems like a good plan.

My rating: 8/10

Anseremme

Suburb of Dinant. Dinant is one of the most important historic city in Wallonia, Belgium, known for its impressive Citadel. From Anseremme you can take a train (only run every two hours tho) to Dinant Centraal station. The road from Furfooz all the way down to Anseremme is really nice downhill with very few traffic even on a Saturday, should be great for longboard cruising or something.

My rating: 7/10









Park Furfooz

Huge parc along Lesse river, in the summer you can rent a kayak for a few hours at the exit of Station Gendron-Celles or in Dinant. I saw people camping along the river too. There is a little restaurant if you follow the walking route from the kayak renting point outside Gendron-Celles station.

My rating: 8/10

I didn't know Belgium was a 'flat' country. It's still beautiful though. Your pictures are great. I think one good thing about a flat terrain is getting a good view of the wide sky. It makes the world seem endless.

Thanks, Bekgium is flat and doesn't have that much field and nature, the country is quite populated. I hope you can find more nature where you are and enjoy it.

Flat or mountainous, to each their own! 😄

right right 😂

I didn't realise Belgium is so flat, but then it's not a big country anyway, I guess there aren't many mountains..

Flanders is rather flat, almost as flat as my hometown in China (jiangsu), lol

Great blog! It's been a real long time since I 'saw' you here, was away for a while, but great to see you're still making awesome posts :).

I love that region in Belgium. Dinant is one of my favourite cities. All the streets spotted with beautiful, castle like houses. It's an area we like to go camping, but stayed in Netherlands for this year's holidays, just to be safe.

Especially liked the pictures of you and the lovely view from the hilltop!

Good to see you here. Yea lately I've been working mainly on vlogs, hahaha haven't travel blogged much lol

Dinant is nice and calm. Enjoy your time in NL!
