With this full-day D-day excursion, you will get a complete historical insight of Canadian battles during World War II.
You will first reach Juno Beach, where the Canadian Armed Forces landed on the morning of June 6, 1944. From these Normandy battlefield sites, our guide will tell you all the details and how the Allied forces finally managed to keep gaining ground. You will visit the Juno beach center, the only Canadian museum in the D-Day beaches area. There, you will be able to chart the story of Canadians through photos, archives, and artifacts. The museum goes further than just the Normandy battle history and retraces the involvement of Canadian Armed Forces all along World War II. Visitors can also learn more about Canada today.
You will also explore the Abbey d’Ardenne, where Canadian troops were held prisoners by the Germans and executed within the church’s walls.
This Canadian D-Day tour will finally take you to Hill 67, the Canadian Memorial for the troops who fought during the Battle of Normandy.
