This trek along the Western Front remembers the incredible sacrifices made by all those who fought in the First World War.
Day one will have you traveling from London to the Somme region of France. You’ll walk an average of 13 miles per day over the four days of walking. You’ll pass between the battle-sites and memorials of World War One around the Somme and Ypres, tracing parts of the line of the Western Front.
This trek provides a unique perspective as we walk between the prominent battle-sites, often following the lines that divided German and Allied forces. There are beautiful views over the now-tranquil countryside, but as we walk along the hill-ridges and through the fields and woodland, it is all-too-easy to imagine events of the past. This is a poignant experience as well as a physical challenge – a memorable and meaningful way to raise funds.
We’re very happy to be working with experienced trek leaders from Discover Adventure so you’ll be supported every step of the way. The cost of this trip includes:
