Dreaming of a fun nature experience to bring your loved ones together? There’s nothing like a walk with François and his donkeys for an intergenerational activity which everyone in your family is sure to love!
Here’s an activity you won’t forget any time soon: François, a Nature Guide certified by the Cercles des Naturalistes de Belgique, will come to your holiday home with his donkeys (that’s right, you don’t even have to go anywhere, he comes to you!) to take you on a Nature experience. The idea is to let the journey surprise you. So throw on some weather-appropriate clothing, and let's head off on a round trip to discover the nature surrounding your holiday destination! And what will you like about it? Everything! Starting with the joys of the countryside around you, and the precious moments you’ll experience together.
A getaway of sightseeing... and tasting
With François, you’ll talk about birds, trees, flowers, and the many treasures of nature. His knowledge of nature makes him a marvellous, devoted, and passionate guide, and you’re sure to learn a whole heap of new things from him. And the kids will absolutely love being sat on the back of a donkey! Still unsure? You should know that the walk is suitable for all ages, and that François can even adapt the route for those with reduced mobility.
And finally, you’ll love the super bonus you’ll get as an Ardennes-étape member: on top of sampling wild, edible plants, you’ll also be able to try a brew made from everything nature provided you with on your walk. It’s a sure-fire hit!
