Hiking in the Somme
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!
The Somme department is a fantastic playground affording a multitude of ways to get back to nature. You can explore its valleys: firstly the Somme valley but also those of the Authie, Bresle, Avre, Nièvre, Ancre, Selle, Airaines, Omignon and Liger with just as many hiking trails/footpaths on either side.
There are also long distance footpaths (GRs) for longer hikes lasting days (or weeks). You can also try shorter trails observing the plants and wildlife of natural sites in the Somme.
Several hiking packs are available, featuring downloadable routes based on different areas of the department. They can be ordered or bought directly from Tourist Information offices. The Fédération Française de Randonnée (National Hiking Federation) also publishes topo-guides available in shops or to order.

HIKING FEDERATION CLUBS
There are 21 hiking clubs in the Somme. For a day's hiking, shorter walk or special event, why not join the great family of hikers in the Somme? Hiking with a Somme club means you'll be well looked after, enjoy an energetic experience and be insured for this activity. The Hiking Federation also organises sea wading trips (walking through sea water along the coast).
