Day 1 - St Malo
Arrival in St Malo. Hotel check-in. Free visit of the citadel
Day 2 - St Malo - Carentan
You leave St Malo towards the famous Mont St Michel following the coast. You will wander the narrow streets of this island to the top where the abbey stands and embrace the view on the bay. Then through the Cotentin peninsula you will reach one of the most famous landing beaches : Utah Beach. After a stop at Ste Mère Eglise to see private John Steele hanged by at the church tower, you will reach Carentan your stopover for today.
Day 3 - Carentan - Honfleur
This day is dedicated to the discovery of all the major places of the Normandy landing beaches: the Pointe du Hoc, Omaha beach and the cemetery of Colleville, the artificial harbour of Arromanches and the Bridge of Bénouville. Then following the flowery coast you will arrive at the 18th century basin of the sweet town of Honfleur.
Day 4 - Honfleur - Le Tréport
After crossing the Seine on the impressive Pont de Normandie and crossing Le Havre, you will follow the Côte d'Albatre towards Etretat. You will walk in the footsteps of Arsène Lupin. Then after a stop in the charming village of Veules les Roses, you will reach Le Tréport by the coast to finish this wonderful motorbike road trip in Normandy.
A silence reigns on the Normandy beaches which saw thousands of men landing during the darkest time in France’s history. Omaha Beach, Juno Beach, Sainte-Mere-Eglise, and many other locations in this region provide a window into the past and a glimpse of the madness of mankind. But squalls on the cliffs of Etretat and carpets of wild heather and gorse along the Cotentin coast will soon sweep the dark clouds from your thoughts. Twisty country roads follow the coastline and will take your bike from one beautiful port town to another, including Deauville, Honfleur, or Dieppe and Le Tréport.
