Take the time to enjoy breathtaking strolls offering a change of scenery
Audresselles is renowned for its nature activities. It is the starting point for many hikes that crisscross the undulating hinterland as well as the GR 120 hiking trail that runs along the coast overlooking the sea from the top of the cliff that will take you from Cap Blanc-Nez to Cap Gris-Nez.
Meet the grey seals
They are waiting for you and will put on a show at the foot of the cliffs of Cap Gris-Nez. Having disappeared from the coasts of northern France in the late 1970s, seal colonies are now returning, to the great delight of tourists.
Browse around the many markets and flea markets
If buying locally is a priority for you, then you have come to the right place: you will find a market nearby on Monday mornings; boats that leave the port of Boulogne every day, a local producer, a craftsman, a food truck or a garage sale. There are three flea markets in Audresselles in May, July and August.
