This selection of delicious, autumn walks, some brand new, others quite off the beaten paths… prove a real inspiration to make the most of the gentle temperatures and cheerful colours of the season.

Aperitif on the heights of Tournai

Pauline will meet you at the Ferme du Monchau, at the foot of the Mont Saint-Aubert. A fantastic walk to the top of that hill awaits, with a refrigerated bag filled with a local, zero waste focused treats: charcuterie, cheese, beer… or for special occasions, a goûter, more sweet focused one.

In the bag also is a roadbook featuring five itineraries to choose from (3.5-7 km), one being mostly flat and accessible to PRMs (people with reduced mobility), the shorter stroller friendly.

All perfect to work an appetite as you will finish on a wonderful picnic, with a memorable view of Notre-Dame cathedral and its belfry.

This family friendly stroll is a real gem!
