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.
Add to those an extensive canal network and some gorgeous lakes created by man but fitnessed by nature, and you have a recipe for a short break or longer vacation with the potential for a thriliing aquatic adventure in the wild Ardennes or a relaxed excursion on the calmer waters elsewhere.
