Meet the animals of the night with Rando Aventure

A branch snapping in the darkness, an owl hooting in the distance, a deer leaping between the trees… Nocturnal life in the forest is still a mystery for many of us. Yet we can sense your curiosity… So, are you ready to enter the darkness of the High Fens?  

This night walk to discover animals is reserved for Ardennes-Etape customers and provided by Rando Aventure. On the programme: A 4-kilometre walk that starts when night falls because the meeting time is one hour before sunset. Steve will be your guide for this unusual hike. You’ll have to make yourselves invisible, which is why Steve will reveal the techniques of camouflage. Because you must be discreet in order to observe nocturnal life in the Ardennes. Game animals are on the lookout, ready to take flight at the slightest hint of danger. Hares, foxes, wild boar, stags, does, night birds, small rodents… Many of them live in the undergrowth and you’ll learn to recognise their slightest trace. 

Excitement guaranteed 

The meeting point is in the small village of Longfaye, situated in the High Fens. From there, as the sun goes down, you’ll move forward deep into the forest, where your eyes will gradually adapt to the darkness, then allowing your ears to take over. At night, our senses are heightened, unless it’s your imagination escaping to lands full of magical beings?  

Your steps will lead you to a clearing with delicate charms. It’s the opportunity to taste a meat and cheese board put together with the help of local producers, as well as a local beer or natural fruit juice for the youngest ones.The walk will then continue for around 1 hour, this time in total darkness. Don’t wait any longer to enjoy this thrilling walk that takes you to another place!
