Take the RAVeL towards Hotton and leave Marche-en-Famenne, the economic centre of the Province of Luxembourg, behind you. When you arrive in Hotton, a small city with many tourist attractions, you can go underground to discover its caves, which are classified as a 2 star attraction in the Michelin guide.

When travelling along the small roads that cross the pretty villages of Hampteau, Rendeux, Marcourt and Jupille, all with traditional Ardennes architecture, you will discover the sumptuous landscapes carved out by the Ourthe river. This peaceful river, where the tales and legends of Ardennes still lie, invite you to go fishing…

This step ends at La Roche-en-Ardenne, also called «the city of Berthe», a friendly ghost that haunts the ruins of the medieval castle. A sight not to be missed.

rom the roundabout located on the urban boulevard near the Place des Étangs and the Maison du Tourisme, take the Chaussée de l'Ourthe up to the Cultural and Sports Centre, where the RAVeL starts, leading towards Hotton. Follow the RAVeL, which runs alongside the King Albert military camp for about 8 km, and then follow the cycle path marked along the N86 and some local roads to reach the centre of Hotton.

From hereon take the road to La Roche-en-Ardenne and follow the detailed description. This second part of the route is mostly on small quiet roads protected from busy traffic, but also the N833, which only has a cycle path in some places. Be careful.
