Passchendaele Battlefield Tour

We have just added a tour for those clients interested in attending the historic commemoration of the Battle of Passchendaele (also known as the Third Battle of Ypres). This escorted itinerary will focus on the Canadian centenary ceremony at Crest Farm, which includes a torch-lit procession from Passchendaele to the monument on November 10, 2017.  We will visit Vimy and explore all the battles in The Salient of importance to Canadians.  Highlights will include a visit to In Flanders Fields Museum in the historic Cloth Hall, Ypres followed by an evening ceremony at the Menin Gate.  Remembrance Day will be spent in Ypres to conclude our trip.  We will use the city of Courtrai as our hotel base for this battlefield tour.  Dates of travel are November 3 -12, 2017.
