The beaches of Normandy are constant witnesses to the struggle for our present. It is a place that brings together the memories, the courage and the indomitable spirit of those who shaped the course of history on the beaches of Normandy. Our tour of the Normandy beaches from Le Havre pays deep tribute and promises to remember the historic heroism of the Normandy landings.

German Cemetery: Echoes of Conflict and Remembrance

A trip to the solemn grounds of the German Cemetery, a poignant testimony to the hopeful lives lost during the turbulent days of World War II, will put you in a historical mood. Among the carefully laid tombstones and trodden paths of visitors, you will be struck by reflections on the sacrifices on both sides of the conflict. By following history, you learn to understand and appreciate it, so this initial stop sets the tone before continuing with the key events of the D-Day landings at Pointe du Hoc.

Pointe du Hoc: climbing to the heights of heroism

The famous Pointe du Hoc, home to the U.S. Army Rangers' heroic climb up the fortified cliffs, is an example of courage and determination in the fight for freedom. Standing at the top of these rugged hills, reminders of this audacious attack, which helped secure victory, spread all around us. You will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the historic atmosphere of this place, surrounded by the memory of the valour and scars of the battles that the hill bears.

Omaha Beach

The tranquillity of this place today makes it hard to believe that the historic battle that bore the name of one of the most intense battles during the D-Day landings took place right here on 6 June 1944. The same golden sand, scattered by the boots of American soldiers who bravely faced the formidable German defences. Fierce resistance, costly fighting and difficult terrain earned the beach the nickname 'Bloody Omaha'. Today's tranquillity and beauty of the place is due to the bravery of these soldiers, and we invite you to take a reflective walk on this historic site. At this point during the day we will distribute packed lunches. Our team has personally prepared a homemade baguette lunch for you, alongside which you will receive water and dessert.

American cemetery: a solemn tribute to sacrifice

The American Cemetery is a place of reverence and reflection. The sight of rows of white crosses and Stars of David is a humbling reminder of the enormous sacrifices made for freedom. A testament to the sacrifice and determination of each of these soldiers, it remains recorded in history as the great price that freedom brings. The tranquil surroundings belies the profound impact of the events that took place here, and as you walk between the graves, you will be reminded of the profound price of freedom.

An intimate and informative experience

The backdrop of picturesque landscapes contrasts with the rich and moving stories of heroism, strategy and sacrifice that took place on these shores. Our experienced guide will lead you through these testimonies of the past to help you gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced and triumphs achieved during Operation Overlord.
