Running along the spectacular Meuse River valley, the Trans-Ardennes bike path offers an easy 85 km ride between Charleville–Mézières and Givet, near the Belgian border.

Situated 1 hr 45 mins from Paris by TGV, Charleville–Mézières, with its elegant blond façades, represents an ideal point of entry to the route laid out along the former towpath. The train which runs along the valley allows you to adjust your outing as you please and to come back without being tired. Enjoy a perfect weekend in the heart of nature.

In the future, the Trans–Ardennes bike path will be extended to the south towards Sedan and Mouzon, going back up through the Meuse River valley.
