“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. »
