From now until 2018 there is going to be much activity in northern France as the 100th anniversaries of numerous battles and key dates from WW1 are remembered and honoured. The ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Australian National War Memorial in Villers Bretonneux is going to be a particularly poignant moment for Australian visitors.

ANZAC DAY 2015

For ANZAC Day 2015, the beautiful hotel barge “La Belle Epoque” is going to be specially re-positioned to this part of France and Toujours France has the exclusive rights to a once-in-a-lifetime cruise from Compiegne (site of the Armistice signing) to Villers Bretonneux, finishing on ANZAC Day with the ANZAC Day service at the Australian National War Memorial. Cobbers facial

We attend the ceremony with hundreds of other Australians and French dignitaries to pay our respects to the 48,000 countrymen who were killed in this region during WW1. As the sun rises, the strains of the Last Post echo across the countryside. A truly unforgettable and powerful experience.

During the week of cruising along the canals of the north, we visit the most important WW1 sites of the region such as Peronne, Thiepval, Newfoundland Park and Pozieres.

Accompanied by renowned expert Kate Stedman

Kate is an historian considered one of Australia’s leading experts on the WW1 Battlefields and an extremely experienced tour manager. Kate gives an extraordinary insight into what the Australian troops experienced in this region.

Already, accommodation is almost impossible to secure around ANZAC Day in this part of northern France. Our guests don’t have to worry! In addition to discovering the history and stories of WW1 with Kate, each day you return to your luxury hotel barge and enjoy the beautiful scenery, food and wine that France is famous for. unnamed (10)

Accommodation is in beautifully appointed en-suite cabins and there is plenty of free time to sit on deck and watch the French countryside & villages pass by.

Transfers are included from Paris at the beginning of the cruise, and returning at the end.
