The surroundings of the enclosure

On the tourist side, the Marais Audomarois is part of the Regional Natural Park and as such has an exceptionally rich and diversified fauna and flora. Birds and animals thrive there in complete freedom within lush vegetation that will not fail to enchant you! In the middle of the marsh, extends the Voluntary Nature Reserve of Romelaëre. Ponds, ditches, meadows and reedbeds occupy a former peat extraction zone.


Hiking enthusiasts can follow the basin path (16km or 5.5km) with the possibility of joining the reserve path... One of my favorite places in Nord Pas de Calais.


The Cortège Nautique de Saint-Omer is an annual flower parade on the water unique in the North of France which attracts thousands of spectators along the Aa and the quays of the Faubourg du Haut-Pont. It is a very popular and free event.

As every year on the last Sunday of July, you can discover about fifteen flower floats mounted on board bacoves. After a first parade of floats in the afternoon in a festival of colours, you will be able to see them reappear at nightfall, in a twinkling of light!


Many are the possibilities of pedestrian circuits on the territory of Eperlecques:

  • 2 short courses near the Blockhaus (1.5km or 3km)

  • 2 circuits marked by the Syndicat d'Initiative of around 10 km and 14 km, starting at rue de la mairie

  • the chapels circuit (unmarked circuit) of 10km will make you discover the chapels of the village:


The largest blockhouse in northern France, witness to this dark period that was 1939-1945.
Open to the public since 1973, it was listed as a Historic Monument in 1985.

1h30 of visit, to discover, know the history of the Blockhaus of Eperlecques, the technology of secret weapons V2 & V1, in a wooded park. You will be impressed, interested and will keep an unforgettable memory!


Magical place in the Pas de Calais and part of the opal capes and marshes where a change of scenery is at the rendezvous!


The Audomarois marsh has also recently been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, like 11 other French sites, to which is added a new label "man and biosphere" which comes in recognition of the quality of the territory where intimacy and serenity are the keywords.
