Your Somme break in the great outdoors!
The Somme is adored by campers in search of wide open spaces to get back to nature and they flock here in their thousands every year to explore the Baie de Somme, one of the world’s most beautiful bays. After a trip around the bay, we love relaxing and taking time out to explore the former fishing villages-turned-popular sea resorts such as Quend-Plage, Cayeux-sur-Mer, Fort-Mahon-Plage, Le Crotoy and Mers-les-Bains. Enjoy experiencing protected sites where nature reigns, birdwatching in Parc du Marquenterre and its 200 hectares of dunes, forests and marshes.
Explore stunning scenery on bike paths and footpaths snaking along Picard Ault cliffs up to the Caux valley.
Take time out with a walk around the Haute Somme’s lakes and eel ponds that make the region a popular camping destination among fishermen.
Recharge your batteries as you admire the relaxing scenery of the Somme Valley that you can explore on the bike path from Péronne to the river mouth in the bay’s estuary. Gaze in rapture at the “hortillonnages” floating gardens in the heart of Amiens covering 300 hectares of canals and marshes...
Must-visit tourist attractions in the Somme
The history and cultural heritage of the Somme is so rich and diverse that we couldn’t possibly list everything here. However, the campsite recommends you stop in the medieval town of Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme on your way to Amiens to visit its stunning UNESCO cathedral, Jules Verne’s house, the Picardy Museum and its famous floating gardens. Belfries epitomise the North of France and the Somme is home to six UNESCO World Heritage belfries in Abbeville, Amiens, Doullens, Lucheux, Rue and Saint-Riquier so don’t miss them! Next head to Saint-Vulfran Collegiate Church in Abbeville, the château in Rambures, the Cistercian Abbey and gardens in Valloires, the Doullens citadel and its fantastic sandstone ramparts then the underground city of Naours and its unique grottoes nestled 33m under the hill. A trip to the Somme means a trip back in time from prehistory with Samara Park near Amiens to the First World War along the Memorial Trail from Péronne to Albert. You can visit the Museum of the Great War, Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial, Thiepval Memorial and countless monuments and museums devoted to the Battle of the Somme. As you can see, your camping break in the Somme is going to be a busy one!
