One of my favorite things to do on a warm sunny day off is hiking. Belgium has some nice hiking spots, especially in the French part of the country. So I decided to head off to Nonceveux, a small village near the more famous Remouchamps (known for its underground cave) to start my hike in the valley of the Ninglinspo.
Belgium day trip: hike along the Ninglinspo at the Ardennes
The Ninglinspo is a mountain river situated in the Liège provence. It flows through the most amazing pieces of nature. The walk is very varied. You have simple sandy paths and more rocky trails. You cross the river by wading through the water or at the more deep river crossings there are bridges made of tree trunks you can use. Sometimes the hike gets more difficult where the actual path disappears. Then you have to use the rope to climb the slippery rocks along the river. Those were my favorite parts, because it was quite adventurous.
What I loved the most about this hike were the many small waterfalls and the “bains” (baths). You are allowed to swim in the stream’s pools, which are always accompanied by an astonishing waterfall.
Make sure you wear water proof hiking shoes and don’t do this hike with small children, unless they are used to hanging on ropes and climbing rocks.
