Over three or four days, depending on tour selected, we will visit many of the
evocative and sometimes emotional sites that stand as a reminder of the human
cost and horror experienced by those young Allied soldiers so many years ago.
You’ll receive CB commentary as we drive along a mixture of tracks and roads,
giving you an insight from a different perspective of this famous battle, traveling in a
small convoy of 5-6 vehicles.
Using a well equipped campsite or hotel just meters from the edge of Gold Beach you will experience the same sand and tides that bore witness to horrific casualties on the first day of the invasion, but gave the allies a foothold on the European mainland.We will travel along the length of the invasion front keeping away from the routes used by those who are unable to venture further than the roadside. We will see the side of Normandy that has changed little since the advancing soldiers made their way across and through the lanes and farmland.From the high cliffs and gun emplacements at Pointe Du Hoc, past the remains of German gun batteries to the long shallow beaches, such as Arromanches which still have the remains of the Mulberry Harbours sitting on the sand we will visit many of the evocative and sometimes emotional sites that now show little sign of the horror experienced by those young Allied soldiers 74 years ago.To book, click on the link for your chosen date.
