Full description
Visit the battlefield of Somme for a day of remembrance. During the full-day tour you will discover the part of France which suffered severely in the violent and bloody battles of the Great War (the First World War).

Explore the area where the dramatic period of history took place – the Somme battlefields and its major sites, including memorials, cemeteries, and traces of battles. Visit Delville Wood at Longueval, Pozière and Mouquet Farm, The Welsh Memorial at Mametz Wood, Thiepval, the Ulster Tower, Beaumont-Hamel site, and the Lochnagar Crater located at La Boisselle, an impressive mine hole 100 meters wide and 30 meters deep.

Also visit the Newfoundland Memorial, which offers a realistic and moving view of the battles with its remarkably well-preserved trenches system, as well as the Historial in Péronne, an international and cultural museum of the First World War which explains the conflict, its origins, and its consequences. The Historial boasts a unique collection of over 50,000 original objects and documents of everyday life during the war.
