Pointe Du Hoc

Special 76th Anniversary Tour -

Three Days/Two Nights - June 5th-7th 2020

The D-Day Festival lasts several weeks, with the pinnacle during the week of 2nd-9th. Our tour is based in

a campsite in Etreham, a short drive from Gold Beach, where there are plenty of bars, restaurants, along

with vehicles, displays, music and entertainment from the period. If you don’t want to camp there are a

limited number of chalets and mobile homes available to rent at the campsite or you are welcome to

arrange your own accomodation

Our Special Anniversary Tour Starts on 5th June and concludes in the evening of the 7th June. There will

be lots going on throughout the week, but the 6th June is sure to have lots to remember. You can take in

the festivities including a large fireworks display at 23:30. The Tour finishes approximately 5pm on the

Sunday, plenty of time to travel back to Caen for an overnight crossing.

Tour Highlights

Over three days, 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 a maximum of 6 vehicles.

Using a well equipped campsite just a short drive 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 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 so many years ago.
