Bay of Somme ̶ one of the world’s most breathtaking bays
It’s little wonder the bay of Somme has become a much-loved destination for anyone craving 100% immersion in the great outdoors, because it truly is a scene like nowhere else. You may have heard about its magnificent opalescent light, its everchanging and supernatural skies, and pure nature as far as the eye can see, but being there in the flesh feels like the end of one world and beginning of another. The bay of Somme is also a magnet for birdlovers because of its nature reserve, the ‘Parc du Marquenterre’, home to more than 250 species of migratory birds. Now add to that hundreds of native Henson horses, a flock or two of wild sheep, and a colony of seals on the sandbanks, and hey presto, you’ve got Mother Nature at her very best.
You can explore the wonders of the bay on a 3-day cycling trip with Vélo Voyageur.
