Houyet – Quattro Stagioni – 10km

Nice easy walk in and around Houyet. Weather conditions changed every 5 minutes… crazy!
But that didn’t made it less fun.
It was quite a while ago since we were out in the Ardennes so we enjoyed every second of it.
This is a fairly easy walk with a steep climb in te beginning and near the end, he rest is next to the river bedding which is slowly ascending and descending, you cros several small waterfalls and in the right saison they can be very beautiful. The best place to have lunch is where you turn left away from the river after a kilometer or 3.
Also there is a walking restriction after a kilometer or two due to possible falling rocks. You can either ignore this or take the long way round. If you trespass, it’s at your own risk!

One other couple was standing a bit further. No problem whatsoever with that. It’s not because we like to be alone in nature that we are asocial. Most of the people looking for locations like that share a similar mindset.
