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 17th of November until Sunday 19th 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

* ALL YOUR DRINKS (that means: all your drinks!)

* Fun & laughter, unforgettable memories,…

°Price:

°Subscriptions

Starting on Tuesday the 31st of October you can register at our office in the Therminal (Hoveniersberg 24) between 7pm and 9pm on Tuesday and Thursday.

°Weekend planning:

FRIDAY:

We leave at 6PM from the SMAK (Jan Hoetplein 1) on the 17th 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 I 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!

Your ESN Gent team.
