Wallonia: Land of Water | The Water Way to Holiday

Walking, cycling, kayaking, driving on a narrowboat, ready to dive in in your swimsuit or relaxing on a terrace in your bathrobe, enjoying the outdoors with or without an umbrella… In 2019, Wallonia will embrace and celebrate all water pleasures.

In search for off the beaten path gems and adventures?

  • Cycle along the banks of the river Meuse,
  • Dive into an outdoor swimming pool,
  • Jump on a boat and go through a lock or two and take a boat lift,
  • Let the engineering of still working water mill wheels wow you,
  • Go lake or river fishing.

Looking for relaxation and wellbeing?

  • Take a rather cool walk amidst fountains in prestigious gardens,
  • Stay in a holiday village by a lake,
  • Indulge in a break in a stunning spa and relax in a thermal water,
  • Stroll by a refreshing torrent
  • Taste escavèche (a dish of fish fried then marinated in vinegar) by the river

Wallonia, Land of Water

Four great rivers and their tributaries have shaped Wallonia’s industrial, cultural and social history, and continue to do so today. The rivers Meuse and Escaut brought trade to the region; the Semois and Ourthe attract nature-loving, thrill- seeking tourists by the thousand.

On, in or along water: expect a flow of happiness, anywhere you go in Wallonia.
