Normandy Biking Tour

History At Your Feet

Though every region of Europe boasts a long history, Normandy has been deeply shaped by two watershed moments that are pillars of European history and culture: the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and the Allied landing on June 6, 1944. Discovering this region is like turning the pages of a history book while riding through lush fields, along white sand beaches, past quaint thatched cottages and ancient churches; the combination of these elements has created in Normandy a unique region. The locals speak of their love for the land and their attraction to the sea – a feeling you will share as we bike the Channel coast and past historic beaches.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Accolades

"Our trip surpassed our expectations. We expected a great biking trip, which we experienced. We did not anticipate that we would laugh as much as we bonded with our travel group on the rides and during meals; that we would learn as much about the French culture and history… and that this would all take place in strikingly beautiful and varied locations."

Insider’s Guide: Things to Do in Honfleur

There are more things to do in Honfleur than whiling away an afternoon sampling Calvados. (Though we have to admit, that's not a bad strategy, either.)

On Omaha Beach, Bravery Remembered

Today, Omaha Beach, which once bore so much violence, has given way to a series of beautiful, if stoic, tributes to the many men who fought that day.
