About the Challenge

Our journey takes us from the Somme region north to Ypres and its evocative memorials. Our 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 are currently confirming new dates and routes for this challenge and these will be updated as soon as available.  Please continue to check our website.


Detailed Information

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.

Preparing for the Challenge

  • We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.
