The Ardennes Mountain Bike Challenge

Ardennen 1

A Belgian adventure in nature

It only takes some hours driving to the Ardennes in Belgium, attractive to people seeking Belgian adventure closeby. Many people find a relaxing atmoshere here, as well as enjoy sportive activities in beautiful natural surroundings. Mountain biking lets you enter a completely different ‘world’:  deciduous and coniferous forests, fast running rivers and streams, small ravines, caves, rapids, sloping hills and swampy marshlands. As a bikers and hikers ‘paradise’, the Ardennes region harbour wild animals such as deer, wild boars, various species of birds of prey and even lynxes.

FIT Adventure Sports Travels organises mountain bike tours to and through the authentically picturesque village of Durbuy. Two days of biking through beautiful natural scenery makes you think back of the historical past of the landscape. Long climbs and challenging tracks through the woodland, its pastures and fast running streams, make you enjoy and appreciate the natural conditions of this region.
Upon request and at a sufficient interest we also offer other outdoor activities such as canuing, kayaking and skiing.

Our vision and mission
FIT Adventure Sports Travels offers you the opportunity to turn your endurance sport into an adventure. We organise sports travels in areas of natural beauty, almost untouched by (mass) tourism and in doing so, offer you the unknown and unexpected. You will experience basic outdoor living in foreign countries, combined with local standards of modern life circumstances. We closely work together with local people and create employment.  Thus avoiding, that people leave the country side for a life in the city and doing so, preventing that old traditions and cultures get lost.

Reviews and evaluations of former participants in our sports travels include reactions such as:
‘Sheer amazement because of the natural surroundings and the constant variety in traveling experience, from traditional to modern’
‘Wonderful surprises regarding the acquaintance with the every day authentic life of the local people’
‘You start out as an indivual, but you will finally end up as a group’
‘I enjoyed very much the constant focus on individual performance levels’
‘No extreme sports is forced upon you, but you gradually learn to reach your own maximum level of performance’
