History

Septentrion Tours is an owned by friends company founded in 2016 by Aline and Nicolas.
“We met at college, during a bachelor’s degree to become qualified tour guides. There, the idea of Septentrion Tours emerged. After years of various professional experiences in tourism and culture, we created the Northern France DMC “Septentrion Tours”.We are aware and convinced of the tourism potential of les Hauts-de-France, an area where we grew. We are passionate about its people and history. »

Nicolas, Chairman: “Leading guests on a trip I designed is always a humanly rich experience for me: every stay is unique, because every traveler is a meeting.”

Aline, Executive Director: “Nothing pleases me more than seeing the eyes of our travellers light up in front of one of our beautiful landscapes. You feel like watching a soul growing.
