A world class tent

You will reside in very high-quality, durable and spacious Sibley 500 Ultimate tents. These tents can easily accommodate 4 people and are tastefully decorated with carpets, bedside tables, mood lighting and worldly accents.

The Sibley 500 Ultimate has a wide entry with an integrated mosquito net. When not in use the mesh wall can be rolled up and stowed neatly with the built in hook and loop system on the inside of the canopy. The extremely durable, sturdy zipper allows you to unzip the side walls from the groundsheet and canopy, allowing you to roll up the canvas walls for maximum ventilation while keeping your tent sealed.

For large families we also have a number of Sybley 600 Ultimate tents available, these are suitable for families with 3 or 4 children. With 30 m², this tent is more spacious than many hotel rooms and also includes fully-fledged beds.

Intense experiences at the doorstep

5 minutes and you're in Durbuy Adventure Valley. A paradise for the active outdoor athlete who loves ferrata, caving, climbing walls, biking and so on. Food for adrenaline junkies of all ages and good for a guaranteed day of unadulterated fun. Access to this park (value € 37/day) is included in your stay and unlimited!

  
Intimate concerts for you and some lucky ones

Buscemi, Milo Meskens, Bent Van Looy, Gabriel Rios, Novastar and Ine Tiolants, these are just some of the roaring names that have already been announced. On a lot of dates these musical kleppers will provide an intimate private concert in Basecamp Connections Deluxe. Front row you catch the notes, this with enough distance and in a safe bubble. You bet these are moments to cherish. Soon we'll announce some more variety artists: stay tuned!

  
Tastes from around the world

We love streetfood and we know you do! You only really get to know a city if you have really tried the local street food. Khao San Road in Bangkok with its many food stands appeals to the imagination. As does Mexico, Japan and Cuba just to name a few. As a guest in Basecamp Connections Deluxe you will have the opportunity to enjoy (at democratic prices) various international cuisines.

  
Unique setting

The Basecamp is located in the middle of nature: you will doze off listening to the murmur of rustling trees and wake up to the sound of happily chirping birds and fresh forest scents that permeate the canvas of your tent. All this while at the same time you are a mere 10-minute walk (downhill!) from the idyllic centre of Durbuy, the smallest city in the world. Need it be said that this is a unique setting?

Een stukje cultuur meepikken? Durbuy has a myriad of things to offer any visitor, including its 17th century historical center, the Falize rock and the Parc de Topiaires. No wonder it has been referred to as the "St. Tropez of the Ardennes", though we feel that is a comparison that does not do justice to this magnificent spot that oozes with charm and ambiance and is unsurpassed anywhere else in the Ardennes (or Europe for that matter).

  
Health and Safety

Your health and that of our crew is of the utmost importance to us. It goes without saying that we comply with all regulations and legislation imposed by the government concerning hygiene, safety and health. We guarantee we fully respect these regulations at all times. You will have the opportunity to wash your hands in several places, social distancing will be adhered to and all tents will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before your arrival by a professional cleaning team.
