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.

Get some fresh air by sand-yachting on the beach at Quend and Fort-Mahon, horse-riding, kayaking in the Somme bay to watch the seals, hiking in the Somme Valley, rafting in Picquigny, taking a guided walk accross the bay between Saint-Valery-sur-Somme and Le Crotoy: sports, leisure activities and nature are all here in the Somme.

Beautiful landscapes, bucolic walks, sky lights: discover the most beautiful facets of the Somme ...
