World War I History Tours in Nord-Pas-de-Calais
Nord-Pas-de-Calais in Northern France sits along part of what was the Western Front of World War I. The region and its immediate surroundings were the setting for many key clashes, with the Central Powers and the Allies battling almost constantly for control. Here is what you can expect from WWI history tours in the region.
 
Highlights
  • Visit key battle sites and trenches from the Battle of the Somme, which took place along the upper reaches of the Somme River and was one of the bloodiest battles of WWI.
  • Explore the role of British, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, and other international troops stationed in the trenches of Europe's Western Front.
  • Learn about the events of pivotal battles, such as the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the Battle of Cambrai.
  • Descend into the underground tunnels of Arras, which housed more than 20,000 Allied troops and were equipped with running water, electricity, and a fully functioning hospital.
  • Pay tribute to those who lost their life in WWI at moving memorials, such as the Thiepval Memorial, the Canadian National Vimy Memorial, the Australian Memorial Park, and the Memorial to the Missing at Tyne Cot Cemetery in neighboring Belgium.
  • Cross the border to Ypres in Belgium to watch the Last Post ceremony, which takes place nightly at Menin Gate and remembers those who fought here during a solemn ritual that includes bugle calls and a minute of silence.
