History buffs will love this Walk, which includes a day-long tour of the D-Day Landings site and a visit to the US cemetery. We visit the scene of the largest airborne night assault in history, the center of the US 82nd Pointe du Hoc where the battery has been left as it was on D-Day.

A Walk highlight is our overnight stay in Mont St Michel and a tour of the famous abbey. Our stay here gives us the luxury of exploring the famous islet in the peace of the evening after the crowds have gone home. Back on the mainland, a stroll though Normandy's famous 'bocage', a picture postcard landscape of woods, meadows and orchards, enables us to sample the renowned local apple brandy and ice-cream.
