Begin your Normandy Battlefields Tour with a visit to the Juno Beach Center, the only museum in the Canadian sector. The Center retraces the implementation of the Canadian Army during fighting in Europe. Your minivan holds a maximum of eight passengers, and a small group tour is the perfect way to get to out-of-the-way places in one day.

Highlights
  • Step back in time on a history tour
  • Small group ensures personal service
  • Hotel pickup included

Next stop is the Canadian Cemetery near the villages of Beny-sur-Mer and Reviers, next to where the 3rd Canadian Division landed. Over 2000 Canadian, British and French soldiers are buried here, they paid with their life in the fight for Liberty.

Last stop on this tour is Ardenne Abbey, a masterpiece of architectural design dating from the 12th century. In the early years of the German occupation, the abbey was a focal point for the local French Resistance. Its unfortunate reputation nowadays, however, is as the site of execution of Canadian prisoners of war by the child soldiers of the Hitler Youth Division.

Please note: Due to special events taking place to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, this tour could be amended on 5, 6 and 7 June 2014. It may not be possible to access the beaches, in which case alternative sites will be included instead.
