Day One:  SOMME BATTLEFIELDS

On the morning we will head towards the Somme battlefields to discover the sites of the major allied offensive in 1916 : the impressive mine crater, the well preserved battlefield of Beaumont-Hamel, the Thiepval Memorial to the missing and the many memorials scattered in the peaceful countryside of the Somme. A visit to the excellent Albert underground museum is also included. After this moving day we will return to ARRAS.

Day Two: ARRAS and VIMY RIDGE

Pick-up at your hotel at ARRAS

The capture of Vimy was a great victory for the Canadian Corps in April 1917, the battleground is still scarred with shell holes, craters, trenches and tunnels.

There are numerous sites around Arras from Notre-Dame de Lorette, the poignant Ring of Remembrance to Neuville Saint-Vaast German cemetery...
