When Is the Best Time

It's an awesome day hike south of Liege in Belgium close to the German border. The walking path close to the streams is often slippery and muddy, especially after heavy rainfall. Parts of the trail can get flooded in bad weather. Therefore, check the weather forecast before you plan hiking along the stream. It's an adventures hike in all seasons, but be prepared to stick in the mud. 

However, don't let the weather spoil your amazing day out in the woods. Wear appropriate clothes, proper hiking shoes, and have fun.

It is a stunning 14.5 km/4-5 hours hike along the most picturesque stream of Belgium. The track leads along the untamed streams Ninglingspo and Chefna to the Ambleve river with rapids and quartzite blocks.

The hikes are marked, therefore, many opportunities to combine different trails. We prefer circular trails the reason we combined the first part of the Ninglinspo hike, nb 21 (blue rectangle), with a short part of the MTB track 38 (triangle with dots) to get to trail 22 (red rhombus) to the Ambleve River. At the beginning it's a long ascent for almost an hour; hiking poles may be helpful. The trail leads along slippery rocks and small bridges always crossing the stream. It was a fantastic hike during a hot summer day. At the end of the track at the Ambleve River are some pools perfect for cooling down. Nevertheless, don't swim in the river; strong currents occur even dangerous for experienced swimmers.

Bear in mind; if there was heavy rainfall the day before you may wade through mud.

Nearby are the caves of Remouchamps. The first part of the cave is visited on foot and the second by boat over the subterranean river almost 600 meters in length.
