two-day gravel adventure
There are so many cool gravel roads and views here that it would be impossible to see them all in just one day. Get ready for an awesome two-day “bikepacking style” gravel ride in the beautiful Hautes Fagnes area of Belgium.
Our Bikepacker adventure lets you explore as much of this fantastic terrain as possible over a fun-filled weekend. You’ll be riding alongside other gravel enthusiasts, making new friends, and enjoying the ride together.
This trip is open to anyone who’s new to bikepacking or thinking about giving it a try. The only thing you need is some bikepacking bags to carry your stuff. So, whether you’re a seasoned bikepacker or a newbie, come join us for an exciting gravel ride through the Hautes Fagnes and create lasting memories.

** terms and conditions apply
Do you provide luggage transfer services?
Luggage transport is NOT available. You’ll be responsible for transporting your own gear (clothing, mattress, sleeping bag, etc.) on your bike.
Are there tents available for rent?
We offer a limited amount of tent rentals. If you don’t have a lightweight, compact tent, you can rent one from us, and we’ll set it up at the campsite for you.
Are there power outlets available?
There are a limited number of power outlets available at the campsite. We recommend you bring a USB power bank or battery to charge your GPS device at the campsite or during the day.
Do I need bike lights?
The sunlight should last sufficiently for you not to require lights, but it’s advisable to carry a compact set of lights to enhance your visibility in case of fog or adverse weather conditions.
What spares or tools should I take?
Ensure that you have all the essential tools and spare parts to address common issues such as flat tires, worn brake pads, loose bolts, and possibly even a broken chain. Particularly, having spare brake pads is crucial if there’s a possibility of rain. Additionally, consider carrying some cable ties, which can come in handy for various tasks.
What is the lenght of the ride and how much elevation gain is there?
Anticipate covering approximately 110-125 kilometers and ascending about 1600-2000 meters in elevation per day, with a substantial portion of the route being on gravel roads.
Is this a round trip?
Is the route signposted?
You’ll require a GPS device since the route is NOT signposted. We will supply you with the GPX track a few weeks prior to the event.
What bike should I use?
We recommend using a bike with at least 33mm or larger tires. The bigger the better because your bike will be loaded (40-50mm is ideal). But any off-road capable bike in good working order can be used.
How much food & water should I carry?
Carry enough food and water with you, as shops won’t be readily available along the route. We’ve marked some points of interest on the provided GPX file but you might need to leave the route.
The first day was sunny, while the second day brought rain.
