Walking the Ypres Salient

Coach Tours 5 Days

Specialist Battlefield Guide On Every Tour. Prices from only £549

A leisurely Leger Holidays walking tour over the infamous Battlefields of western Belgium. The Ypres Salient played a key role on the Western Front in World War One. The continued Allied hold of the area throughout the war meant that the Allies maintained a gap between the German Army as it marched west. The importance of the Ypres Salient is best seen in the number of key battles that were fought there - and the huge loss of life that resulted from these battles. This Leger coach tour is accompanied by an expert WWI battlefield tour guide.
