About Nord-Pas-de-Calais

about

map

Nord-Pas-de-Calais borders Belgium but you are more likely to make the trip across the English Channel to this region.

This is a starting point for many drives through France and is a region of contrasts; forests and woods rolling hills, a magnificent coastline that stretches for miles and miles, wide-open spaces of beautiful countryside that make up the Regional Natural Parks and much more.

Nord-Pas-de-Calais is a very traditional region where fairs, fêtes and festivals are an integral part of daily life. France is famous for its wonderful gastronomy and the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region is no exception with fine examples of mouthwatering regional specialities as well as numerous locally brewed beers.

This is also a region where history has left its stamp on everything and everyone, from medieval times to the second world war, there is so much to be learnt here as well as viewed.
