Polynesian pirogue in the bay of the Somme, kite flying on the long beaches of Fort-Mahon, rafting in Picquigny or discover the impressive silhouette of the river cathédrale d'Amiens when you arrive by boat... these are some of the pleasures that the Somme can offer you.

In the rest of the department, enjoy the Crécy forest or the tow along the Somme. This destination is a must for nature lovers! In the heart of the Somme Bay nature reserve, Parc du Marquenterre is a mecca for bird migration across the continents from Europe to Africa. Arm yourself with good binoculars and enjoy this natural and soothing sight

When to go to Somme?

When to go to the Somme? If you need to reconnect with nature, decompress, blow or enjoy your family, you can go to the Somme all year round for beautiful hikes or bike rides to discover the bay of the Somme, visit the cathedral or zoo of Amiens or the castle of Rambures. From April to September, you can enjoy the beaches, at low tide to look for shells and at high tide to swim with more or less warm water, or practice activities such as sand yachting (in combi), walking or cycling, crossing the bay of the Somme (with its cap) and why not the longe-côte (in combination of course !).
