Send us a tip on walks in northern France – and win a £200 hotel voucher

We’d like to hear about great walking routes and trails, from Normandy to the Belgian border, for a chance to win our weekly prize

From afternoon promenades to serious randonnées, France is a great country for walkers. This week we’re concentrating on the north, from Normandy to the Belgian border, so whether you’ve enjoyed a scenic towpath, a breezy shoreline hike or pretty woods inland, we’d like to hear about it. Please give as much detail as you can about the start, finish and length of the walk.

Send us a tip via GuardianWitness of around 100 words.

The best tips will appear in print in next weekend’s Travel section and the winner, chosen by Lonely Planet, will receive a £200 hotel voucher from, allowing you to stay in more than 260,000 places worldwide. Submit your tip by clicking the blue button and using the text tab.

You’re welcome to add a photo if you own the copyright to it – but it’s the text we’ll be judging.
