The Ardennes - which span southern Belgium, Luxembourg and Northern France - are considered to be one of the wildest regions in the surrounding part of Europe, and are an excellent destination for hiking, mountain-biking, kayaking, rock climbing and other kinds of active holidays. The region is also famous for a number of battles that took place there in WW2, and subsequently contains numerous memorial sites.
Although the geological boundaries of the region are defined by the rivers Vesdre to the north and Semois to the south, tourist guides will often include the adjacent Belgian regions of Condroz, Pays d'Herve, Famenne, Gaume and the German speaking part of Belgium, which are equally nice.
