Dinant — 3 nights

Located along the Upper Meuse Valley, the city of Dinant features colorful buildings framing its famous church and a clifftop citadel in the background.
Citadelle de Dinant and Abbaye de Maredsous will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Domaine Des Grottes De Han and Le Fondry des Chiens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Dinant: Kayaking & Canoeing (in Alle-sur-Semois) and Chateau fort de Bouillon (in Bouillon). There's more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Parc de Furfooz.

Military Museums · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
One of Europe's last truly unspoiled natural areas, the Ardennes offers visitors lush greenery. A region of wooded hills and low mountains, this verdant corner of southeastern Belgium continues to welcome mostly Flemish and Dutch cyclists and motorists, drawn largely by the land's gentle topography. A lack of tourist crowds means that you can take the time to explore the region's caves, forested hills, rich river valleys, and small villages at your own unhurried pace. Made for active holidays, the region lets you split your time between fishing, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, and hiking. If you prefer a calmer vacation, head to Spa--the original spa town.
