School Trips to Opal Coast

If you’re short on time but keen to provide your students with an introduction to France and the French culture, a school trip to the Opal Coast is a great option!

For those wishing to stay slightly closer to home, the Opal Coast region is always a popular choice. Whether you visit Calais, Boulogne or Le Touquet, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to activities.

You can visit a chocolate factory, a traditional bakery, museums, theme parks and sea life centres. And you can spend time on one of the lovely beaches or experience the atmosphere in one of the local markets.

Discover more about school trips to Opal Coast

Most who arrive in Calais shoot off immediately to other parts of France, be it Paris, the Alps, or the Côte d’Azur. But they’re missing out on an incredible hidden gem that offers some of the very best experiences of France.

The Opal Coast is so called because of the spectacular light here. And its rolling dunes and traditional towns are a real delight that remain free of the tourist hordes, making this region the perfect choice for a school trip, whether you’re here to practise your French, or learn more about the delicious food.

On a clear day, you’ll be able to see England across the Channel, helping to impress on your students just how close we really are to our Gallic neighbours. And, of course, the short journey times from the UK really are a huge advantage, especially if you’re short on time or budget, or have a younger group, perhaps from a primary school.
