Hey Erasmus people!

ESN Gent is very pleased to invite you to one of our most famous weekends: ESN Gent goes to the Ardennes!

WHAT? It’s again that time of the year: November. We traditionally link November to cold weather, rain, wind, snow and … the Ardennes!

For many years the Ardennes trip has been ranked as the number one event of the semester. Don’t miss out the opportunity to join us and making it as awesome as the previous editions.

We will spend the weekend in the Belgian Ardennes, well-known for the beautiful countryside, a nature’s unspoilt area with dense forests and small scenic villages spread out over the hills.

WHEN? It will take place from Friday 23th of November until Sunday 25th of November.

PACKAGE It’s an all-inclusive weekend! This includes amongst others: * Transport * Accommodation for 2 nights in an authentic cottage * All your meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) * The party with our own private DJ * FREE BEER * Fun & laughter, unforgettable memories,…

PRICE? 95€ + 20€ deposit

WEEKEND PLANNING

FRIDAY: We leave at 6PM from the SMAK (Jan Hoetplein 1) on the 23th of November. Upon arrival there will be a meal waiting you, homemade by the owner of your favorite pub: the Porter House! As legends say: after food, it’s time for a drink. We enter the night with a great party, where the DJ will provide you with all the best party music!

SATURDAY: On Saturday we go hiking through the wonderful nature of the Ardennes, enjoying the scenery and tranquility of rural life. A perfect opportunity to get some fresh air after last night’s party! You are free to spend the rest of the day as you want

  • recovering and napping,
  • playing board games, card games or whatever what game,
  • being active and play some sports like volleyball,
  • watching a movie,

In the evening we will have dinner together followed by a surprise game for all of us. Hey, did we mention a party? Of course we end/start the night with another great party!

SUNDAY: The bottle is gone, the cups are empty… As a result we go for a Sunday with a cultural touch. On our way back to Gent, we will visit the beautiful city of Dinant, located on the River Meuse (Maas) in the Upper Meuse Valley. The picturesque city of Dinant is famous for its fortified citadel on a cliff above the city’s landmark (Church of Notre Dame). The visit of the citadel is optional for those interested.

See you all very soon!
