Trekking in Mountainous and Subarctic Regions

Where Semois becomes Semoy

1 Comment

A short 2.5 day – 45 km solo trek through the French Ardennes early May, along GR16 from Monthermé (F) to Bohan (B) and back.

Weather was splendid and the Semois river (spelled “Semoy” in France) was a sight for sore eyes. For the first time in my life I had the pleasure of spotting a wildcat, which shows how surprisingly quiet and unspoiled this area is.

One thought on “Where Semois becomes Semoy

  1. One of the most beautiful and unspoilt regions in the Ardennes ! Crossed the whole region from Givet to Monthermé and further to Bouillon with my Bush-friend Marc ” Binamo the Dynamo “.
    In the winter you can cross the Semois on foot with your backpack on your head.
    Keep on going Filip !
