The Elfique Experience
ACTIVITIES AT THE RABORIVE SITE AND NEIGHBOURING VALLEYS
Original activities for team building events, or outings for families or friends.
WELCOME TO RABORIVE
We invite you to share the Elfique experience in this exceptional setting, in the forests bordering the river Amblève.
The site of the Elfique brewery and the surrounding countryside are full of the magic of the Amblève and our Ardennes. Whether you come for a guided tour or a tailormade event, you’ll go home with unforgettable memories.
The guides who lead the brewery tours are true enthusiasts who bring Elfique to life. You’ll even find out some of the secrets of the success of our beer. All the steps in the beer-making process are explained.
The visit is also an opportunity to marvel at the rich history of the site, where the river and men have been working together for so many centuries.
Duration : +- 30 min.
Discovery walking tour
The trails and hills which encircle Raborive are well worth exploring.
Crossing by zip line, forest paths and/or via cordata. Along the Ourthe and Amblève valleys, the most beautiful viewpoints are often only accessible via mountain paths or rocks.
You can discover them by following completely safe routes, with just the right amount of thrills.
Possibility of abseiling.

Tailor-made walking tours including a visit session
Aywaille and its surroundings abound with natural treasures and a unique countryside. We can set up an itinerary for you through our beautiful region, based on your instructions (distance, difficulty, stages and refreshment stops, organised with collective transport, etc).
On your return to the brewery, you will find the welcome for walkers is worthy of their exploit.
For team building, or to promote synergy within a team, there’s nothing better than undertaking some well-designed tasks.
Various playful workshops during which the team will have to show inventiveness, cohesion, creativity and communication in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that encourages exchanges.
Duration: 60 min. per workshop
The Shooting Trilogy
Activity divided into 3 distinct but complementary workshops:
- The “Keep In Mind” game: the aim is to memorize a series of objects, each with a story. We are not talking about common objects but about equipment related to the snipers’ operational missions.
- Spotting: this is an observation exercise; spotting targets and potential threats with binoculars.
- Shooting: precision shooting with exercise weapons produced under FN Herstal license , intended for the training of recruits of elite units. Biodegradable and non dangerous bullets.
Duration: about 30 min. per workshop
No. of participants: min. 15 persons
GPS has replaced maps, but doesn’t lead us along walking trails, and doesn’t guide us anywhere once the battery is dead. To rediscover the pleasure of really knowing where you are and where you’re going, there’s nothing better than a good map, a good compass and a spot of training before you head off on an adventure.
Duration: 60 to 120 min.
