The High Fens (Hautes Fagnes), the roof of Belgium, covers the entire northern part of the municipality of Waimes.
Stretching out over a plateau at an altitude of more than 600 m, renown for its cool, damp climate, this is a remarkable site, characterised in particular by the presence of peat bogs.
More than 5,000 ha are protected, forming the largest nature reserve in Belgium.
This large-scale preserved wilderness area is the home for a specific flora, such as the Arctic starflower, and a rare fauna, including the emblematic black grouse, not to forget the wolf, who has made a comeback here.
It is a hiker's paradise, where you can walk on the paths and wooden walkways in the "B" zones, except when the red flag is raised.
