DMC Septentrion Tours
Septentrion Tours is an incoming agency in Hauts-de-France, founded by two passionate guide-lecturers. From the mountains of Flanders to the castles of the Oise, from the coalfield to the Baie de Somme, we organize tailor-made tours for individuals and groups.
Fancy a beer like a Lillois on the Grand’Place? A slice of Maroilles in the Avesnois bocage? Visit one of our many museums? Be moved by our paths of remembrance? Try your hand at sand yachting on the Côte d’Opale? Our team can’t wait to share with you its nuggets and favorites!

“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.”
