Upon leaving Namur, you will be surrounded by the relaxing atmosphere of the Meuse RAVeL. You will pass through the village of Wépion, which is world-famous for its strawberry fields. You will now progressively enter the most beautiful landscape of the valley of the Meuse, with many cliffs and sumptuous sites, such as the famous gardens of Annevoie.

On arriving at Rivière, keep your eyes peeled as you may be able to spot hang gliders, flying down from the top of the Sept Meuses. Shortly after Anhée, you will be able to see the ruins of the Poilvache Castle, overlooking the Meuse from the top of its rocky spur.

When you arrive at Dinant, several hectares of vineyards lay across the side of the valley. At the foot of the citadel, on the quays of the Meuse, the city of the ‘Copères’ (the Dinantais) – derived from the English word ‘copper’ – invites you to taste its famous «couques» or to take a boat trip.
