Visiting Normandy D-day beaches is something you’ll never forget but doing it on a motorcycle makes it even more special. On this tour you will ride on the footsteps of the allied forces that landed here in June 44. You’ll walk on the beach of Utah and Omaha and will be amazed by the geography of the Pointe du hoc that the rangers had to climb. Your motorcycle leader will explain all the events that took place at each location.

Not only all the highlight places of this historical event, you will also discover the impressive Mont St Michel at the border of Brittany and Normandy. Then through the small countryside roads of Brittany you will ride your motorbike back to the Loire valley to admire its numerous and majestic castles. A motorcycle tour which is a jump in the French history…
