Walking the Somme Battlefields

Walking the Somme

This tour takes you on five walks over the Somme battlefield and also includes a walk on the Arras battlefield on day one. Walking the actual ground, walked by the men who fought on the Somme is a very powerful and moving experience and gives a new understanding of the battle.

Using original trench maps on a GPS system, we are able to plot our course across the trench systems of 1916. Each of the walks is approximately three hours long and the average distance covered is two and a half to three miles. There are some short moderate hill climbs, but the Somme is generally easy walking.  You will need to be reasonably fit and will also need to bring appropriate footwear and clothing.
