One of our most popular school trip destinations, the easy-to-reach Opal Coast is an excellent choice for primary schools, French language or History tours. The charming towns of Boulougne and Le Touquet, theme parks and aquariums, World War Two memorials and a whole host of artisan and farm visits make for a fun, enriching and rewarding experience.
This year our trips have ranged from £49 per person for a day-trip, to £590 per person for a really full week. Let us know how long you would like to go for, and we'll put together the best possible tour, at the best value for money.
The Opal Coast offers a fantastic selection of visits. Our favourites include the yummy trip to Chocolaterie de Beussent, baking croissants at a local Boulangerie, the exhilarating Bagatelle theme park and Aqualud water park, and a trip to Nausicaä, France's National Sea Centre in Boulogne with giant aquariums and many fun activities.
