Hiking and trekking
There is a variety of hiking and trekking routes starting straight from Val d’Or. With different lengths, traverse in height and matching levels of difficulty, hiking or trekking the surrounding hills and valleys is a must for every visitor to our Eislek-region.
Straight out the door
From the Val d’Or entrance you can choose a route of respectively sixteen, eight and five kilometers in length. In the villages surrounding our camp site, you will find many road markings indicating your current or new available routes, some starting only 1,5 kilometers away. See our front desk for information on the variety of routes and possibilities. There is even a multi-day route along many of our local points of interest, making Val d’Or a logical choice for a single night’s stay.
Escapardenne Eislek Trail
The daunting Escapardenne Eisleck Trail is a famous trekking route spanning 106 kilometers from Kautenbach to La-Roche-en-Ardenne, through some of the most breathtaking parts of the Ardennes. In 2015 the existing trail was extended with the Lee Trail, adding 53 kilometers due South from Kautenbach to Ettelbruck. You can hike this trail in roughly three stages, which will carry you from timeless villages through the gorgeous Ardennes landscape and undisturbed swaths of nature.
At only 45 kilometers distance is a hidden gem of the Eislek region: the Mullerthal. It is aptly nicknamed ‘Little Switzerland’ for its many jagged rockfaces, caverns and alcoves, but also it’s abundance of softly sparkling rivers and splendid vistas. This region hosts many unique hiking and trekking routes, among which one leads through the village of Echternach, once founded by the Romans. For more information, see the website: www.mullerthal.lu
