River cruise on the Meuse to discover Belgium
It’s time to cast off and set off on an adventure to discover the magnificent Walloon region of Namur thanks to a licence free house boat rental from our base in Dinant. You will discover the lively river La Meuse, with its inhabited banks, and of course the wonderful landscapes of Wallonia, between cliffs, hills and sumptuous gardens. “Le plat pays” as Brel sang is certainly not the right description for this corner of southern Belgium.
Whether it’s for a weekend, a family holiday or with friends, there is no shortage of activities and ideas for visits. In one weekend you can travel by house boat to the city of Namur for a city break in the capital of Wallonia. Sailing the Meuse with a licence free house boat is particularly popular with families with children, who can spend quality time together and enjoy the many outdoor sports
activities along the way.
Discover the Ardennes with a licence free house boat
After the wide, inhabited Meuse around the town of Dinant, head south and you will find a narrower, wilder river at the French border, located in the heart of the Ardennes Regional Nature Park. After only a short day’s cruising, you will cross the French-Belgian border and discover a landscape that is just as breathtaking. You will pass through the small towns of Givet, Ham-sur- Meuse (with its discreet canal tunnel), Revin and the town of Monthermé. The real stars of this weekend or week-long river cruise are the cliffs and natural landscapes of the Ardennes. Here you will feel completely free to enjoy your holiday on a licence free house boat.
A total escape for lovers, families or friends from our Walloon houseboat rental base in Dinant, Belgium.
