The actual sight of the (D-Day) grounds is haunting and makes the words in history books sound hollow.

Butterfield & Robinson—the world’s premier active travel company—introduces a new way to explore the quiet roads, quaint villages and rich history of Normandy in 2014, with its new Normandy Self-Guided Biking trip.
B&R's new Normandy Self-Guided Biking trip offers the perfect way to explore the Impressionist harbour town of Honfleur and the beaches of D-Day, just in time for the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Normandy, which will be commemorated in 2014.
"Even the most gifted writer cannot describe the intensity of those fateful days without forfeiting some of the truth of what happened on that chilly June morning," says B&R regional expert Thilo Erhardt. "The actual sight of the grounds is haunting and fosters a feeling that makes the words in history books sound hollow."
With 35 years of experience planning trips in the region, B&R's new Normandy Self-Guided Biking trip rounds out a portfolio of Normandy trips that includes Normandy Biking, Normandy Bistro Biking, Normandy Family Biking and Normandy Bespoke.
