De Bomal à la Barrière de Petit-Han (Durbuy) (stage 2)

On the Ourthe RAVeL

Length (in km)
12,5 km

Starting from Bomal, a key spot for kayak enthusiasts, you can enjoy a breath of fresh air along the safe, flat rural path that follows the curves of the Ourthe river. The RAVeL leads you successively to Barvaux, a tourist centre with dwellings typical of the region, well known for its summer maze, and Durbuy, the Pearl of the Ardennes, the final destination of this stage.

Durbuy, considered to be the world’s smallest town, harbours a wealth of heritage with its old 17th- and 18th-century houses and its 11th-century feudal castle.
