Long-distance regional cycling itineraries in Wallonia

Our long-distance itineraries allow you to travel right across our region, following the signposts through an ever-changing landscape.

The regional long-distance routes mainly follow the greenway sections of the RAVeL routes.

Eight itineraries are already fully usable along the entirety of their course, and Wallonia is working to extend the number to ten in the near future. These regional long-distance routes form a structured network that permits cyclists to move safely around most of Wallonia.
