Geological miracles of one of the most beautiful caves in Europe, with spectacular landscapes of a huge Animal Park, entirely dedicated to the preservation of wild species (voted Best Animal Park in Belgium).

Many original activities are proposed and some to book before your visit:

- Spend the night between the trees, in the heart of the Animal Park. Discover the Tree Tents, from where you can admire the magnificent vistas of the ancient Lesse Valley and observe in a very intimate way deer, deer, aurochs, Przewalski horses or mouflons, frolicking in the great plain. An unforgettable night awaits you!
WE LIKE : with small children, everything is adapted to make things easier, a train transports you to the entrance of the cave, a bus safari is available to visit the animal park.

- The Aquascope of Virelles :
The Aquascope of Virelles offers you a family trip from the depths to the surface of the pond.
Start your visit by discovering the temporary exhibitions with breathtaking photos. As you go, the route will bring you into the museum space, to immerse you in the heart of the pond. The aquariums will reveal you the different species that live in this body of water. In the video room, follow the life of the pond through the seasons.
Ready for the walk? This is the moment to go to see the pond more closely: below the water, at the edge of the water, from a mirador located in the trees. In the middle of the course, admire, from an apiary didactic, our bees. Make a small - or long - detour in the Garden of Millepertuis, an ethnobotanical garden dedicated to the uses of plants ... Then you will discover how you too can contribute to the protection of nature and the environment.
WE LIKE : Finish your visit by relaxing on the terrace with panoramic views of the pond adjacent to the playground. The Cantine de l'Aquascope offers dishes based on local and fair products. A program to make sure you have a wonderful day in a green setting !
Looking for an original sleepover? It is possible thanks to the two "Sphairs" that emerge above the water, along the south shore of the pond. Transparent, these bubbles offer all the benefits of outdoor tourism without the mosquitoes, dew, wind, rain and all these little drawbacks that repel those who want to try the experience of a night in the open air. On the contrary, the bubbles offer a near-home comfort with heating and water toilet.
A comfortable night, under the stars, alone in the world at the edge of the pond, to book on the site.
