Description

In the Belgian Kempen you can take beautiful long walks through town and country. This route takes you through Hamont-Achel, through Neerpelt and through the nature-rich countryside.

Warmbeek Valley
From Hamont you can walk straight into the green rural area. The route takes you twice through the valley around the Warmbeek. A beautiful nature reserve with wet hay and meadows, marsh forests and coniferous forests. Along the banks of the Bocholt-Herentals Canal, it is nice and quiet to continue, while looking out over the rippling water. You cross the canal to walk to the old cozy village center of Neerpelt.

Beautiful Achel
