On leaving Namur, this stage’s route with dedicated pathways passes by a variety of spectacular landscapes. You follow the RAVeL Sambre, at the calm pace of the meandering river. Locks and bridges follow one another in the middle of nature.

The RAVeL will make you discover a transitional landscape, at times rustic, like near Floreffe Abbey, at times post-industrial when you cross "la Basse-Sambre" and enter the urban area of Charleroi. When you arrive, do not forget to visit the site of Bois du Cazier, a symbol of the past, both rich and painful, mining activities in the region.
