From 08h00 until 21h30
Bouillon, Ardennes (Belgium)
Transportation by 4* luxury coach
AFTER THREE TIMES POSTPONED, WE HAVE NOW DECIDED TO FULLY CANCEL THIS TRIP. EVERYONE ON THE LIST WILL BE CONTACTED OVER THE NEXT DAYS.
Join us on a medieval-themed visit to the picturesque city Bouillon in the South Ardennes. Known for its impressive medieval Bouillon Castle, once home to Lord Godfrey, the first ruler of Jerusalem, is a true must-see destination in Belgium. We enjoy a guided tour here as well as a show with stunning birds. Afterwards we walk down to the village for some tourist shopping and lunch, followed by the boarding of our kayaks to paddle 14-km down the Semois river. You can do so alone or with another person, and Expat Club can introduce you to others if you prefer to share a kayak.
NOTE: If you don’t like kayaking you can stay longer in Bouillon and visit the Museum and Godfrey de Bouillon Experience, or take more time for lunch and go for a walk in the area. After that we’ll take the bus to the arrival point for the kayakers, so you still have nice day out! You will get a discount of €25. A handful of people have decided to stay in town, so you’re not alone. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
