The climate of the Ardennens (Belgium)
The Ardennes are a low mountain range stretching from south-east Belgium through to north-east France and the northern part of Luxembourg. The largest part is situated in Belgium and is an important tourist destination. The magnificent scenery is perfect for active holidays. The Ardennes are an excellent area for sports such as rafting, cycling, walking, survival hikes, climbing and canoeing. A south westerly current is responsible for this area being much wetter than the rest of Belgium. Rainfall can be heavy and can cause dangerous situations in traffic because of flooding problems on roads and low visibility. During the winter a reasonable amount of the precipitation falls in the form of snow. Depending on the altitude the region gets about 30-80 snow days per year. This makes this region ideal for winter sports such as cross country skiing. Because of high humidity figures the Ardennes are covered in beautiful forests giving this region a colorful scenery.
