Pointe Du Hoc

Special 75th Anniversary Tour -

Three Days/Three Nights -  June 4th-7th 2019

Festival Tour -

Three Days/Two Nights - June 7th-9th 2019

Booking is now open for what is sure to be a very special event - The 75th Anniversary of D-Day!

The D-Day Festival lasts several weeks, with the pinnacle during the week of 2nd-9th. Both of our tours

are based in a campsite just a short walk from Gold Beach in Arromanches, where there are plenty of

bars, restaurants, along with vehicles, displays and music/entertainment from the period.

Our Special Anniversary Tour Starts on 4th June and concludes in the evening of the 6th June in

Arromanches. 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 and take a short walk

back to camp and have a good night’s rest, ready for your journey home the next morning.

There will be lots going on during our Festival Tour, again staying in the campsite in Arromanches. The

D-Day Festival lasts all week, so apart from the tour itself, there will be plenty to keep you occupied in the

evenings. The Tour finishes approximately 5pm on the Sunday, plenty of time to travel back to Caen for an

overnight crossing back to the UK.

For the 75th, please note the following:

1.

At his stage, we have no details of ceremonies etc. We will endeavour to attend a ceremony, but

due to heightened security and the presence of World Leaders, this cannot be guaranteed. We will

forward more details as and when we have them.

2.

Both tours include camping. Unfortunately we cannot offer hotel accommodation. You are welcome

to organise your own accommodation, but book early as available accommodation will be limited.

Due to rigid accommodation policies, we are unable to offer extra days at the campsite, either

before or after your chosen tour. You are of course welcome to try and find somewhere.

3.

The booking price includes Driver and one passenger. Extra adults are welcome (see below for

pricing) but unfortunately we cannot offer a second pitch. Having said that, the pitches at

Arromanches are large, so accommodating two tents isn’t a problem, should you need it.

4.

As the 75th will be incredibly popular, we recommend booking early. We have guaranteed camping

pitches, but ferry crossings are likely to fill up very quickly once open for bookings, so suggest you

keep an eye on Brittany Ferries and book as soon as possible.

5.

Both Tours start at 10am at Pegasus Bridge, so ideal crossings are: For Anniversary tour -

overnight on the 3rd arriving in Caen on the morning of the 4th. Return morning of the 7th

For Festival Tour - Overnight on the 6th arriving in Caen on the morning of the 7th. Return

overnight on the 9th.

6.

You can be sure of a memorable tour and a few days that will stay with you forever. If you have any

questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us

Tour Highlights

Over three days, depending on tour selected, 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   meters   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 75 years ago. To   book,   click   on   the   link   for   your   chosen   date.   We   only   require   a   £100   deposit   per vehicle   or   full   payment   if   the   tour   is   less   than   three   months   away.   Three   months before   the   tour   we   will   send   you   a   balance   request   and   invoice.   Once   the   balance   is paid   we   will   send   you   an   information   pack   including   meeting   places,   times,   booking references etc. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: info@battlefieldsby4x4.com
