Description

The Ypres Salient was scene of some of the bloodiest fighting in World War One. Here we look in depth at the north and south sections of the salient, and the area behind the lines, to gain an insight into this fascinating area.

This tour is based in Ypres and we make daily round trip cycle rides from our comfortable family run hotel which is close to the Menin Gate and the Grote Markt. Ypres is a lovely town and it is hard to believe it was completely rebuilt following the war, during which it was obliterated. The Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate is an event not to be missed. It is a simple yet extremely moving event; so much so that everyone on our trips returns every night.
