NOTE that the Teambuilding finally takes place on September 30th!!

We will visit the new National Park « Entre Sembre et Meuse » (ESEM)

The ESEM National Park comprises over 22,000 hectares of natural areas in the municipalities of Chimay, Couvin, Froidchapelle, Momignies and Viroinval. It is characterised by three geological regions:

  • the Ardennes with extensive forest heritage of great ecological value (ancient forests), home to many species characteristic of this biotope (deer, black stork, fire salamander, etc.);
  • the Calestienne made up of limestone grasslands: one of the most diverse ecosystems in Wallonia, with remarkable flora and fauna (orchids, butterflies, etc.);
  • the Fagne, criss-crossed by waterways such as the Viroin, Eau Blanche and Eau Noire: well-preserved, unpolluted rivers with superb hay meadows that underline the beauty of the region.
