Once the scene of untold bloodshed, the Somme area of northern France is now a picture of serenity, with its gently rolling hills and sleepy villages dotted about on both sides of the winding Somme River. While difficult to imagine the carnage that once took place here, your 3-day tour aims to help you do just that, with a well-considered itinerary that introduces you to the most poignant WWI battlefields, memorials and museums.

Learn about the Somme’s position in the middle of the Western Front – the series of trench lines that ran from the Belgian coast to the Alps – and of life in the trenches for the soldiers. Hear of the Battle of the Somme, in which some 57,000 British casualties were killed or injured on the first day alone, and learn of the other nations – Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa – who all helped the French stave off invasions.

Your tour includes two nights of accommodation in the town of Arras (in the center of the Somme area) ensuring you’re ideally located for ticking off all the region’s key war sites.
