A walk around Lac de la Gravière

Looking for a breath of fresh air? Then head for Lac de la Gravière in Amay, an unspoilt natural site in the heart of an industrial zone. An unsuspected corner of nature in the Meuse Valley.

Lac de la Gravière

historical heritage and nature reserve

This 44-hectare reserve is recognized as a Wetland of Biological Interest. Landscaped with reedbeds, gently sloping banks, a walking trail, and tree and shrub plantations, the lake is a true zone of tranquility for birds. No fewer than 120 species have been recorded on the site. The entire area is fenced off to allow animals to graze in the spring.

For a pleasant stroll, take a walk around the lake along the pontoon bridges, where you can come into close contact with the flora and fauna. A nature break to enjoy alone, with friends or even with children. You can also bring your dog, provided it’s on a leash. A break from nature, a bubble of oxygen. A moment of disconnection just a stone’s throw from home.

To walk around the lake, allow about an hour (2.5 km).

Practical information:

  • Start and parking: Rue Ponthière, 4540 Amay
  • Distance: 2.5 km
