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
