The source of the River Semois is at Arlon, capital of the Belgian province of Luxembourg. It flows for 195km and changes its spelling to “Semoy” for the 20km or so of its route through France. For around 96km, from the La Vierre dam at Chiny as far as the French border, visitors can use canoes or kayaks all year round, depending on water levels. You can either travel the entire length in stages over several days, or you can enjoy day trips. As well as taking you through picturesque traditional villages, the Semois also flows through wooded national parks and under bridges built in the traditional local style.
