De Namur à Dinant (stage 2)

On the Meuse RAVeL

Length (in km)
28 km

As you leave Namur, you are enveloped by the relaxing atmosphere of the Meuse RAVeL. You pass through the village of Wépion, recognised the world over for its strawberries.

You gradually enter the most beautiful part of the Meuse valley with its many cliffs and superb sites such as the famous Annevoie gardens. 

When you reach Rivière, look up. You may see those daredevils of the skies, hang-gliders, launching themselves from the top of the Sept Meuses beauty spot. Just after Anhée, the ruins of the feudal castle of Poilvaches overlook the Meuse from their rocky spur. As you approach Dinant, you will see several hectares of vines lining the hillside. At the foot of the citadel, on the quaysides along the Meuse, the town of the Copères (as the people of Dinant are known) tempts your taste buds and invites you to savour its famous couques (honey biscuits) or enjoy a boat trip.
