The Belgian Ardennes is the greenest part of Belgian with extensive forests, beautiful hills and the Ardennes mountain range and Meuse River basin. The location of the Ardennes has made it a an important place and battleground for European powers throughout history. It is probably most famous for the “Battle of the Bulge” that took place there during WWII. The Ardennes’ cave systems are also a major attraction in the region which have been carved out over the centuries by underwater rivers which cut through the limestone hills.
This tour visits some of the charming towns of the Ardennes like Bouillon, Dinant and Bastogne whose picturesque little narrow streets and dramatic scenery along with great museum and good restaurants will make you wonder why you haven’t visited the Ardennes earlier.Ask a Question Get a Quote
