    National parc Les Deux Ourthes

    Much of the Ardennes is covered in dense forests, with hills averaging around 350-500 m (1148-1640 ft) in height but rising to over 650 m (2132 ft) in the boggy moors of the Hautes Fagnes region of north-eastern Belgium.
    The region is typified by steep-sided valleys carved by fast-flowing rivers, the most prominent of which is the Meuse. Its principal cities, Liège and Namur, are both in the Meuse valley.
    The Ardennes is otherwise relatively sparsely populated. Hotel la Truite d’Argent is situated in the middle of the Belgium Ardennes in national parc ‘Les deux Ourthes’. You can find it in "the middle of nowhere" 10 minutes driving from the little village Houffalize and 15 minutes from Bastogne War Museum.
