12,000 hectares of untouched nature. To extensive pine forests to purple flowering heathland, from sandy dunes and large lakes to high peaks that give you a stunning view. Every part of the Hoge Kempen National Park is a joy to behold. But why only tell you about it, when we can show it to you too?
To really appreciate this beautiful domain, you have to be able to see it. So Visit Flanders reporter Pedro put on his hiking shoes and set out on an adventure. In this series of vlogs, he hikes the new long-distance hiking trail: a loop of 110 kilometres that is divided into five sections. He starts at Kattevennen, one of the nine entrance gates to the National Park. The trail takes in the 40-metre high Bliksemtrap and leads to the silent area. The only thing you can hear there is the birds.
