La Montagne de Frise
A unique panoramic view over all the Somme valley and its maze of little lakes (certainly one of the finest views in the valley). This natural setting is one of the last large 'Larris' (limestone uplands) in the Upper Somme with remarkable plants and wildlife. Walks with a guide or audio-guide.
Like its neighbour, “La Montagne d’Eclusier-Vaux”, “La Montagne de Frise” is one of the last examples of “larris” (chalk grassland) in the Upper Somme area. The “Conservatoire d’espaces naturels de Picardie” (Picardy Natural Area Conservation Agency) has put in place a restoration plan for the site through ovine and goat grazing with the aim of restricting its forestation. The historic nature of the site, a theatre of the First World War, has been given due consideration. Located on the front, there are still signs today of the trenches in the Montagne de Frise area.

L'office de Tourisme
After a walk in this lovely natural setting, you could stay in the area and take a trip on the P'tit train de la Haute Somme (tourist train) or take a leisurely tour of the lock keepers' houses at Eclusier-Vaux-sur-Frise and La-Neuville-les-Bray.
