Canoeing down the Lesse

Dinant Evasion 


Sensations guaranteed with the strong currents at the Castle of Walzin and Pont-à-Lesse. There are plenty of catering possibilities and pick nick areas dotted along the riverside. As you float by the renowned peaks of Chaleux, a listed heritage site towering over the Lesse River, you won’t fail to be impressed by the rock’s sheer majestic beauty. While canoeing along the twists and turns of this untamed river, you will be enraptured by the beauty of the scenery and the majesty of the rock formations that abound in the Ardennes.

Kayak trips on the river Lesse:

  • Daily from 1st April till 31st October except for the first Saturday of June.
  • From 15th March till 1st April and 1st November till 15th November, only on demand.

Kayaking on the river Lesse is dependent on weather conditions. In case of heavy rains, the water level can vary significantly from one day to another, forcing us to close the activity for safety reasons.

In case of dryness, the Walloon Government can forbid kayaking on the river, in order to preserve our natural heritage.
In both cases, we try to inform our customers and offer them a replacement program.

Price per person: same price for the long or short journey (Houyet or Gendron)

Tickets :

  • Individual : 15 > 23,50€
  • Group : 14 > 21,50€ 
  • Schools: 10 > 18,50€
