Hotton Caves with Ardennes-Etape


Full description

Caves of Hotton

Descend 70 metres underground and take a six kilometre trip. The magnificent Caves of Hotton let you discover the many different types of stone that have existed in this area for thousands of years. A 70 minute guided tour will give you an extraordinary insight in the way new types of stones are formed. Subtle lighting emphasizes the amazing colours and shapes.

The Caves of Hotton are located in the Calestienne, a very particular geological zone, a thin strip between the Ardennes, the Famenne and the Condroz. Since the Caves of Hotton have only been discovered by coincidence in 1958 they have not yet suffered from enormous numbers of visitors like a lot of other caves in Belgium. As a result, and thanks to improved knowledge and technology, the beauty of the Caves of Hotton has been very well preserved.

The Hotton Caves are protected by the Commission royale des Monuments, Sites et Fouilles and recognised by the Walloon region as natural heritage.

You can take a little detour in the Garden of the Calestienne, right next to the caves.

The Hotton area has a lot more to offer. For example, the Riveo River Interpretation Centre is absolutely worth a visit. A stay in one of the Ardennes-Etape holiday homes is the ideal way to explore the region.
