Stage 2: Calais to Arras, France

Difficulty rating: Easy

When we arrive in Calais we will walk along the fence that has been erected around the site of the former refugee camp – the jungle. A poignant symbol of a desire to keep out people who have fled from persecution. We will then meet up with those who are working with the young refugees who have subsequently gone missing.

From Paris our journey proceeds southwest to Guines before heading in a more natural direction down the Via Francigena through the Pas de Calais to the beautiful city of Arras.

Arras was the scene of prolonged and heavy fighting during the First World War and once in Arras we will visit the Canadian Memorial at Vimy Ridge. On route we will travel through Wisques with its historic Abbeys and visit the stunning 15th Century Chateau d’Olhain.
