FURFOOZ NATURE RESERVE

A Walk through Nature and History Located in the Lesse Valley, not far from Dinant, the Furfooz Nature Reserve invites you to explore archaeological, natural, and geological heritage through a family-friendly walk of about 4 km. Perfect for Families The Furfooz park is particularly suitable for family outings. With its diverse environments (forests, meadows, Lesse riverbanks, etc.), the nature walk winds its way past 15 remarkable elements of the reserve that will satisfy both young and old alike. A delightful pit stop at the park's refreshment stand, named La Flobette, is possible along the Lesse. Don't forget your camera... Furfooz, a Slice of Provence When it comes to nature, the sunny, rocky cliffs also host quite interesting plants typical of sun-drenched limestone slopes, providing ample satisfaction for numerous insects. The site is also maintained by sheep. Moreover, the park is a recognized nature reserve accredited by the Walloon Region and unique in Belgium. An Exceptional Heritage On the historical side, the Furfooz massif has been continuously inhabited since prehistoric times (caves) up to the medieval period (plateau). Over time, the Lesse River has carved through the entire rocky massif, leaving behind a multitude of caves, caverns, and holes. These have been inhabited by humans for millennia (approximately 14,000 years). Additionally, you can see the start of the Lesse's underground branch. The archaeological heritage is very rich, as numerous objects have been found here, allowing us to trace the site's occupation over time. Closer to our time, a fortress and baths were erected at the end of the Roman period. Only the ruins remain, though the baths were completely reconstructed in 1958; this life-size monument alone is worth the visit!
