Back in April, stay informed via our page Descente de la Lesse

 


The 21 km kayak trip is dedicated to all those who want to fully enjoy the Lesse valley. 

Embark on a trip of nearly 5 hours between Houyet and Anseremme, an almost complete immersion in a 100% natural and protected surrounding. 

As you kayak down the river, you will go through the wooded slopes, dotted with castles and impressive rocks and interspersed with pleasant spots where you can put down your paddles for a moment and let yourself be lulled by the waves.

To relax yes, but without forgetting the two dams to cross ! Two surprising little differences in height, accessible even to novices, just enough to add a little challenge to your trip ... or a little wetness perhaps !?

Check the level of the water

(*) Depending on the water level, navigation conditions and minimum age may vary! Always consult our page before your departure.

Canoe

"Canoe Descente de la Lesse"

The canoe (3 seats) is designed for a maximum of 2 adults + 1 child.

But it also works for 1 adult + 2 children (min. 8-9 years old in this case),
or to take a big dog for a journey with you !

The smallest doggies can sit between the knees of their owners.

 


 

Our advice

The 21km descent is perfect for a full day of relaxation. The river is perfectly accessible to inexperienced people, the dams do not present any major difficulty. No sporting level is required, however if you can't imagine paddling for 5 hours, you will enjoy the 12km descent better: a little less forest scenery, but still the castle, the 2 dams and superb views along the way.
