Normandy D-Day Tour from Paris : Canada Focus

Paris – Juno Beach – Canadian Cemetery – Hell’s Corner – Ardenne Abbey – Atlantic Wall Museum – Cider House – Paris

Meet your guide next to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris in the morning and head off in a small group of eight people to retrace the amazing D-Day and Normandy Invasion events. Juno Beach is just 2 hours from Paris! In our luxury car with leather seats and A / C, you will enjoy the journey through the lovely French countryside.

We’ll go down to the sands of Juno Beach when we arrive in Normandy. Your guide will explain how the landings unfolded by using detailed maps and pictures. You’ll even see the famous Canada House, said to be the Allied Troops ‘ first house on D-Day released.

Then we’re going to visit the Courseulles-sur-Mer Juno Beach Center. It is the most extensive museum that details Normandy’s Canadian activities. You will follow one of the official Juno Beach Center guides to two of the original German bunkers that were part of the Atlantic Wall after your visit to the Museum is over. Usually closed to the public, these bunkers are a true treat to explore!

Then the guide will take you to a nearby restaurant with lots of local specialties, all of which are very reasonably priced. Whatever your taste and budget allows, you will be able to buy. You will rest for an hour and enjoy your dinner (own cost).

Then we will visit Beny-sur-Mer’s Canadian Cemetery and learn the personal stories of some of the over 2,000 Canadian men buried there. Your guide will then take you to Hell’s Corner, Canadian troops ‘ furthest point on D-Day. Hell’s Corner is located just five kilometers from Caen City, which on D-Day was the actual goal for Canadian troops.

Because of the Germans ‘ fierce defenses it took another 30 days for the Allied soldiers to reach Caen itself. A group of fanatics trained as Hitler Youth captured 156 Canadians during the battle for Normandy and then executed them in cold blood. You will pay respect at the Ardenne Abbey to some of these males who died unjustly during the massacre at the Ardenne Abbey.

You will then have free time to explore the Atlantic Wall Museum inside The Grand Bunker. This museum is part of the former German Forces Shooting Command and has a stunning panoramic view of the English Channel. His collection details the amazing defenses of the Atlantic Wall.

The last thing we will visit in Normandy will assist you experience something that is locally known and particular to the region of Normandy. You will be taken to a family-run cider house where you can taste some traditional tough apple cider and brandy from Calvados. These tastings are included in the cost of our trip.

The return trip to Paris will take a little over two hours, including a stop to use the toilet and stretch your legs. At about 8:00pm, right next to the Arc de Triomphe, you will arrive back in Paris.
