Do you feel like escaping to the fresh air of the countryside? Head towards Mirwart, near Saint-Hubert: its provincial domain is a haven of nature and discovery with 35 ponds, a superb forest, 2 rivers, a beehive and a host of guided walks.
Mirwart is one of the most beautiful villages in Wallonia. The location is a great destination where you can explore the Domain nestled there and see phenomenal fauna and flora. The domain extends over 1,350 ha and is a real gem if you love unspoilt nature. Walking through this incredible green setting, which has no entrance fee, you’ll doubtless come across a few vestiges of the past that bear witness to its historical heritage (old bridges, 16th-century blast furnace, 19th-century ice house now the refuge of hibernating bats, etc.).
Luscious nature and vestiges of the past
What can you see and do here? A whole host of things! Walking, of course. Your footsteps will take you along a trail of game, rare tree species and many ponds hidden at the heart of the magnificent forest. They are all home to farms of brown trout, a species intended to stock local rivers. An educational beehive also enables you to discover the world of bees (you can also buy the honey it produces). Looking for more? Enjoy the events, educational activities or themed guided walks (booking only). And then, what’s better than to enjoy a countryside picnic in one of the many picnic areas provided? This relaxing day will delight both kids and grown-ups!
