On the trail of the Macralles
Head out with the family on a fun walk that’s something between a game of paper chase and a treasure hunt. Discover the beauty of Vielsalm and its surroundings, have fun with the kids, and spend some quality time out in the fresh air.
This hunt will take you to Vielsalm, home of the Macralles (Sorcerers). On the 20th of July each year, these legendary figures meet on the rocks of the Tiennemesse for their Sabbath. As you meander around Doyards lake, you’ll learn all about the region’s fantastic stories and highly-colourful folkloric heritage.

Each route will teach you about the area’s legends and its local heritage, in whatever form that comes: natural, architectural, gastronomical, artistic...
You’ll receive an amount of Toteez on your app for each route you complete. Earn Toteez and exchange them in the Prize Cavern for offers from our partners (escape room session tickets, tasting sessions, cinema screenings, or even discounts on your next Ardennes-étape stay, for example!).
This free activity, which the kids are sure to love, is perfect for adding a little extra punch to your stay in the region. Get your shoes ready, charge up your phone, and let’s go!
