D'Artagnan trail


Mount up and follow in the footsteps (or hoof-marks !) of one of the most famous figures in literature and history – D'Artagnan! A small part of his epic ride from Lupiac to Maastricht passes through the Somme. This first European equestrian trail includes 240 waymarked kilometres for horse riders, hikers and cyclists. From Ailly-sur-Noye to Doullens, by way of Ham, Péronne and Corbie, you can explore the Somme, its heritage and scenery and get to know its people as you ride along.
