An Exciting Boat Ride in the Caves of Remouchamps

The caves of Remouchamps are a must-see when you visit the Ardennes region in Belgium. Not only are the caves a spectacular sight, inside you can find the longest underground boat ride in the world open for tourists.

Some 8,000 years ago, Paleolithic hunters sheltered in the cave, and much later, the same area was used as a wine shelter, and a shelter during World War II. Since 1828 the caves of Remouchamps are open for public, a tour takes around 75 minutes. The first part of your visit is a 800m stroll past the passageways decorated with many stalactites and stalagmites. During this tour you'll also see the "Cathedral", a 40m high hall that can accomodate a 12-storey apartment building. After seeing all this beauty you'll experience one of the most magnificent boat rides ever. The boat ride, entirely underground on the river Rubicon, is 700m long and offers a view of the caves in a truly exciting way.
