Catch a break with a stay in the Ardennes!

Fishing enthusiasts will love the soothing effect of their hobby, helping them feel calm and putting them direct contact with nature. Whether you’re experienced or a complete novice, we offer three original fishing experiences for a zen-like stay in the Ardennes.

Come make some precious memories along the water and the natural world together with the family, a group of friends, as a couple, or even alone. The best moments are those when time stands still!

1. Try float tube fishing on Nisramont Lake!

This is probably the most playful form of fishing. Accompanied by a guide, take a seat in your float tube, a kind of floating armchair, and go predator fishing on Nisramont Lake. How’s that for an original idea! So, are you ready? Come aboard!

An enchanting setting that takes you away.

Imagine a beautiful lake surrounded by the forest, a breathtaking setting that will make you feel as if you were in Canada! And yet, Nisramont Lake is actually located near La Roche-en-Ardenne. We look forward to welcoming you for a unique activity there. It’s fishing, but not like you probably know it!

À chacun son float tube.

Sit back into your float tube, paddle with your hands to the middle of the lake, and cast out your line! Your guide will tell you everything you need to know.

Activity available from October to December.

Special offer for Ardennes-étape* customers: Enjoy a complimentary beverage (local beer or apple juice) per person.

2. Fishing along the Ourthe River in Hotton

Ever heard of coarse fishing? Well, this is your chance to try it! Go to Hotton, on the banks of the Ourthe, with your family to learn all about this technique that consists of guiding the fish to a specific point. If you’re going to learn to fish, might as well do it together and have some fun!

3. Fly fishing near Durbuy
