Hiking 2014

During this 2014 edition, we will make you appreciate the beauty of the Sonian Forest. This Cathedral Beech is the most important green space of the Brussels region.

As an ancient forest filled with history, unique European landscape and exceptional ecosystem, it is home to a surprisingly rich flora and fauna for an urban forest.

During this day of hiking, we will discover the ponds, the beech, the marsh, the incomparable Red Cloister, etc.


You can join us for walk in the morning or in the afternoon. We can have our pick nick all together.
