BOOK / ENQUIRE

a memorial trip along the beaches of NORMANDY and the D-Day landings sites

It is here, on the Normandy beaches, that one of the greatest military operations of all time took place on June 6, 1944: the D-Day Landings. Since these events, Normandy has been home to many emotionally-charged sites paying tribute to the soldiers who liberated France during the Second World War. You will visit the 5 D-Day beaches (Sword Beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach, Omaha Beach and Utah Beach) as well as the places that made history, from the Caen Memorial to Sainte-Mère-Eglise, from the Merville Battery to the Pointe du Hoc, including the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville sur Mer.
You will also have the opportunity to discover the Côte de Nacre, Bayeux and its cathedral as well as Barfleur (classified among the most beautiful villages of France) which shelters in its point the lighthouse of Gatteville, one of the highest in the world.

 

Day 1 : Welcome to Normandy

We will meet you at Caen TGV station at 1 pm  and transfer you at your hotel in the center of Caen. We take advantage of this moment to adjust the bikes and present your stay. You’ll then enjoy the afternoon to visit Caen Memorial dedicated to the history of the 20th century and peace.

This is the opportunity to visit the American Cemetery of Normandy which gathers, overhanging the Omaha Beach (American landing), the graves of 9387 fallen soldiers. The Overlord Museum, nearby, is also worth a visit as it has a collection of more than 40 vehicles, tanks and artillery. Finally, the last few kilometers will take you to the Pointe du Hoc, which was attacked on the morning of June 6, 1944 and gave rise to one of the most difficult battles of the D-Day landings.
