Picardy tourism, exploring the Battefields Tours, the Bay of the Somme with Visit-Somme
You are here


Here you will find your perfect short-break: outdoors and active, parks and gardens, culture and heritage, well-being, golf, remembrance... We take the visitor on a journey to discover the Somme Bay, in the footsteps of the soldiers of the Great War, for a stroll along the riverbanks, or up to the dizzying heights of the Gothic buildings.

Somme bay is a unique location where water, marshland, dunes and salt-meadows combine; where land and sea merge into one and the horizon is lit with soft, opalescent colours.

We like the marine safaris in dugout canoe, the adrenaline peaks in sand yacht, walking on the water in paddle, criss-crossing the hortillonnages in canoe, testing the rafting in Picquigny...


A river with multiple facets which takes its source in our neighbors of the Aisne and flows into one of the most beautiful estuaries in the world: the Bay of the Somme!

The Great War

The Somme still bears the scars of the Great War: trenches, mine holes, annihilated villages remind us of the painful events that took place here over 100 years ago.

Your escapade will be cultural and festive: Cathedral, archaeology, underground city, abbey,... are on the program!
