Want to have a snack in the heart of nature during a hike with family or friends? A great time to live and share in the beautiful towns of Sainte-Ode and Bastogne. 

Do you like hiking, snacks and local products? Well, you'll love this concept! The “apéro” backpacks are all about the pleasure of a gourmet break during your walk in the heart of nature.  In these packs prepared for two are products with flavours that reflect the local terroir: Ardennes sausage, cheese from the Pays de Bastogne, ham from Bastogne and local beers. You will also find water there as well as everything needed to have a great time. And if you are an Ardennes-étape customer, you will receive a mug from the city of Bastogne and you can use it to taste your beer during the stroll.

Let's go!

Once you have collected your backpack, you are off to discover the region. Depending on your wishes, you can choose between four original itineraries, through the municipalities of Sainte-Ode and Bastogne, real welcoming lands for walkers and hikers, to the south of the Deux Ourthes Natural Park. To follow the tracks, nothing could be simpler, you choose between a paper map or your smartphone and you're off! On routes range from 4 to 10 kilometres, take your time to admire and savour all the beauty and variety of the Ardennes landscapes. Stop, smell the air, watch the wildlife, enjoy. Here, we promise, you will take in the sights throughout your day of exploration...
