This itinerary will take you along beautiful landscapes typical of the Famenne region such as the Gerny Heights, a vast agricultural plain.

Join the Maison du Tourisme, beautifully built and dedicated to cyclists.

Aside from the node network through the city, Marche-en-Famenne find pride in the beauty of its cycling paths, especially the one integrated to the boulevard du Nord.

Leave the town to join Wallet, nestled in the rock depression of the Famenne. Further on, you can admire stunning buildings, especially in Aye: the Ferme du château, the manor, the Ferme Tavys...

Cycle north, enjoying the landscapes, particularly pretty in the summer light. From Humain, the Gerny Heights overlook the Ardenne hills to the East and Condroz ones to the West, as if you were on the region's spine.

Towards the end of the trail, the Saint-Etienne church in Waha, a remarkable Romanesque building listed cultural heritage of Wallonia, is really worth a stop. Step inside to enjoy the play of colours created by artist Jean-Michel Folon's stained windows.
