The Semois Valley

Steep rocky slopes, the winding river Semois, charming villages and towns, beautiful glamping sites on the river... At every bend of a country road or forest path, you make a new discovery.
The famous castles of Herbeumont or Bouillon tell us the story of this region, which has been crossed several times by the most powerful armies in the world. Majestic bridges or narrow footbridges over the water lead to sometimes surprising places.

Imagine standing on the tower of the Château de Bouillon or on the Millennium Tower. Admire the ocean of forests stretching as far as the eye can see and intersected by the rivers Semois, Lesse and Houille.

Even more exciting: venture out on the meandering rivers by kayak or canoe or explore the valleys on foot or by mountain bike.
This authentic region is full of history and legends. Recharge your batteries or let your adrenaline run wild: the Semois Valley will not disappoint.
