The Nord-Pas-de-Calais department is located at the north of France; its administrative capital is Lille.
Very high rainfall, freezing cold and never a bit of sun, those are prejudices that are given to this country. Mixture of nature, history, culture and traditions, the Nord-Pas-de-Calais offers a wide range of activities.
Fishing villages and elegant resorts of the Opal Coast, welcoming cities with architectural treasures, waterways such as marshes and canals, footpaths in the three regional parks, historical vestiges, many opportunities for sports activities, festive and friendly atmosphere, markets and pubs... all assets that make this region a destination full of discoveries.
You absolutely have to visit the seventeen clock tower of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, considered as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, and the very famous Dunkirk Carnaval.
More recently, the citadel of Arras and the Coalfield were also classified on the World Heritage List.
