Description

Discover the Battle of Vimy Ridge, a pivotal battle in the history of World War I and in the national identity of Canada, whose military force proved essential to neutralizing the German forces and leading the British to victory. Tour the battlefield with an expert guide and admire the memorial.

Follow in the path of the Canadian soldiers as they mounted an innovative offensive against the German-held high ground along the Artois battlefields. Visit the Cabaret Rouge Cemetery to see tombs of soldiers from all over the world.

Explore the Canadian Commemorative Park, a 250-acre (100-hectare) memorial park on the battlefield granted by France to honour Canada's contribution and sacrifice. Witness the trenches, tunnels, and craters that remain from the war almost a century later. Be reminded of the sacrifices made by soldiers, especially the 60,000 Canadian soldiers who were killed on this ground.

Finish the day in the beautiful town of Arras. Admire the restoration made following the war, including 2 cobbled city squares featuring Flemish baroque architecture.

This was a great tour. Whilst it was a long drive from Paris and a very early start, our guide Julian kept us interested with a thorough commentary of French history leading up to WW1 in general and more specifically of Vimy Ridge

Nicola is a very knowledgeable guide who went out of her way to ensure we could visit a cemetery that was not on the agenda, allowing the first visit of decendant from Canada.The group of 15 included people from all over Canada and was comfortably accommodated in the mini bus .
