Length (in km)
24 km

From the starting point in Jodoigne, you follow the RAVeL of Lines 142 and 147 for two-thirds of this stage. You cross the Hesbaye region, where cereal crops are ever present, sometimes interspersed with groves of trees, sometimes edged by peaceful villages.

In Huppaye, you can explore the ‘Ferme de Chantraine’, a former Commandery of the Knights of Jerusalem founded in 1173. You leave the RAVeL at Orp-le-Petit and continue along quiet roads leading to Hannut, an old city once occupied by Roman legions, where the remains of the Roman road between Bavay and Cologne run along the south side.
