Icon description route Description

Discover the silent witnesses of the First World War with this impressive 11 km-long walk that takes you past historical war relics. You will pass by the Sanctuary Wood Cemetery, a final resting place for the brave soldiers from the Great War. As you walk over the sloping terrain, you feel the solemn atmosphere of this British military cemetery designed by Edwin Lutyens. It is a place for reflection, surrounded by nature, where 1990 heroes are commemorated.

Continue your path along a forest that was known as a refuge for soldiers during the dark years of WWI. This piece of history brings you to the Canadian memorial Hill 62, where you reflect on the courage and sacrifices of the Canadian forces. As you walk down Canadalaan, lined with maple trees that seem to whisper stories, each step takes you deeper into the story of the Battle of Mount Sorrel. Let this walk be a moment of remembrance and tribute, a path marked by peace that arose from the ashes of conflict.
