Reclinghem is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France. It was settled by the Viking Rikiwulf (the rich and powerful wolf) in the 9th century, who probably also settled nearby Richebourg and Rijkeghem in present Tielt, Belgium.


Reclinghem lies about 12 miles (19 km) south of Saint-Omer, on the D104 road, by the banks of the river Lys.
