The three day hike is very long (30km a day!). First day is way good, second day puts you to the limit. Plan this hike good and look out for the places to stay, places to eat and get water, bus times, etcetera. Also we advice you to buy the Topo-Guide de GR16: Sentier de la Semois with plenty of more information on the GR.

Absolutely beautiful and nicely challenging. Full of vernacular Architecture and pristine paths in equally pristine environment.

First to Review

When i planned the hike, the plan was to go al the way to France but i underestimated it a little bit. The second day puts you to the limit, very tough day. The last day the hiking speed was nearly halved.But besides that, great hike along the borders of the Semois, one of the nicest trails in Belgium.
