There's no better way to discover the Lesse Valley than by bike! This circuit lets you travel along one of the most beautiful RAVeL routes in the country.

The greenway of the RAVeL L150B leads out into the gentle undulations of the hills formed by the River Lesse. The countryside and rich natural habitat along this former railway track makes this a great day out – especially for the kids!

After the RAVeL section, the circuit goes to Eprave, a pretty village on the Lesse. Take the opportunity to explore the little streets, to find the lovely watermill, and to visit the brewery, the Brasserie de la Lesse, a co-operative project launched by a group of friends.

After Lessive – another superb village – the itinerary follows the Lesse, flowing lazily through the meadows.

From a distance we can see the fairytale towers of the Royal Château of Ciergnon, the residence and summer retreat of the Belgian royal family, providing a truly romantic vista with which to end this excursion.

Good to know!

With the “Explore Val de Lesse” app you can download a great selection of GPS trails for cycling and mountain bikes.
