WW1 walking route

The ‘Canadian Road to Passchendaele’ takes you in the footsteps of the Canadian troops, who were given the difficult task of taking the ruins of Passchendaele in 1917. Along the way, you will learn more about this sorrowful campaign. After more than 100 days, they had advanced only 8 km from Ypres. The conquered terrain was a moonscape. Recent research indicates that there were at least 600,000 losses (dead, wounded and missing). The Canadians lost more than 16,000 troops in their participation in the offensive.
