Description

In the Ardennes it is wonderfully quiet cycling on the RAVeLs. This route takes you from Sunparks Ardenne in Vielsalm to Spa, a route that largely runs over RAVeLs. A tour full of sights that you really have to see with your own eyes.

Beautiful Stavelot
Stavelot is a beautiful ancient town. From the RAVeL, be sure to drive into the cozy city center that mainly consists of beautifully restored eighteenth-century houses. Here you can relive bygone times. The monumental St. Sebastian's Church, for example, dates from 1754. The iconic abbey was founded as early as 648 to convert the neighboring barbarians to Christianity. The current complex was rebuilt in the nineteenth century. You can visit three different museums.

Monumental Spa
You will also pass through the village of Francorchamps, which enjoys worldwide fame for its racing circuit. Feel free to take a trip to this circuit if you like car racing. The route ends in Spa, a monumental city in the truest sense of the word. The fact that the name of the town has become a worldwide known term for cures says it all. In Spa you will see many castles, country houses and other nice places, because wellness used to be reserved for the rich.

Green RAVeL
The RAVeL (Réseau Autonome de Voies Lentes) is a Walloon project to create paths especially for slow traffic, such as cyclists. Cars are therefore not allowed here. RAVeL often runs on the route of a former railway line, so that the differences in height are limited. You can pedal quietly here and enjoy the view without any worries. Sometimes you drive through the woods, then again you have a beautiful view over a river valley or old town.
