Self-guided walking holidays along D-day landing beaches. Independent walking tour to discover Sword beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach Omaha Beach, Utah Beach and some other famous places as Pointe du Roc where took place bloody fighting.

June 6, 1944… a terrible day.
Hell for more than 100 000 soldiers,
but tremendous hope of freedom for the rest of the world.

To better understand this long day, engraved in history forever, you are going to retrace the steps, on the very land where the battles were fought, of the men who risked and gave their lives for the world. The long sandy beaches and rocky cliffs hid numerous traps : the Atlantic Wall batteries, marshes to be flooded, and the Norman Bocage – meadows and farmlands crisscrossed by hedges and trees, a tangled maze of small paths that slowed down the advancement of the allied troops. This is a hike of remembrance, but also of pleasure, as you will pass through seaside resorts and charming fishing ports that lie along this coast. Caught between history and holidays, this will be a journey you will never forget!
