1.    Continue to enjoy nature and the outdoors.

The Ardennes is really nice and cozy in the summer, but you can also continue to enjoy it in the fall.

The leaves start to discolour and the forests then have a beautiful appearance. Walks deep in the forests of the Ardennes are therefore not to be missed when visiting the Ardennes in autumn. Finish with a winter barbecue and an evening around the fire pit with friends or family.

2.    Go spotting burbling deer

From mid-September to mid-October you can spot roaring deer in the woods near the Ardennes. The beautiful natural phenomenon really heralds autumn. The deer then go into their Bronze Age and thus look for mates to mate. To attract the females, the males roar loudly in the woods. Read tips here to be sure to spot them.
