Trace the remarkable history of D-Day along the shores of Normandy during a walk from Omaha Beach to the hulking ruins of German bunkers, as your guide recounts how events unfolded that fateful morning. Each day, walk 2.5 to 6 miles across gorgeous, unspoiled coastline and villages.

The pristine Cotentin Peninsula is reminiscent of Ireland with its granite coastline, soaring seabirds, and views of the Isle of Alderney, the closest British island to the French coast.

And of course, the local cuisine is exquisite: a medley of Norman cheeses, Calvados liqueur, fresh mussels, sweet and savory crêpes, and delicious tarte tatin. It’s a feast that pairs perfectly with a panorama that is sure to inspire you for years to come.
