Le Trouquet is a historically fashionable town just over 60 km from the parc. From kite surfing to local markets, this town has a lot to offer and will have everyone in high spirits.
If you are after a city visit then Boulogne-sur-mer, just under 30 km from the parc, offers a wide variety of things to do. It is the home to Nausicaã Aquarium, Europe’s largest sea-life centre, as well as an 11th century belfry (a UNESCO Heritage Site) and much more.
If you are looking to make a splash then Aqualud Waterpark has over 2000m of slides and chutes, and even a water cannon to fire people into the pool! Or if swinging through the trees is more your thing then try Passion d’Aventure high ropes course.
Bellewaerde Park is a bit further away and will take nearly an hour and a half but it is one of the most beautiful parks in Europe, combining wild rides and wild animals (the park combines a nature reserve and an amusement park)!
Amiens is the capital of the Somme department in Picardy. It is home to the largest cathedral in France – the Cathedrale de Notre Dame. Amiens has beautiful flower-lined canals; it is beautiful, town not to be missed.
Something fishy going on? Boulogne-sur-Mer is the largest fishing port in France and the Chamber of Commerce organise guided tours of the Capécure where fish is auctioned, frozen, salted and smoked.
