Normandy Beaches Trek | September 16 - 20

RNRMC Normandy Trek

Discover the sites and scenery of the D-Day landings on this unforgettable five-day trip along the beautiful Normandy coastline, to commemorate 75 years since Victory in Europe. 

With a dedicated historian joining us for the whole trip, you'll be fully immersed in the surroundings of the Normandy beaches which played a vital part of the WW2 Allied invasion of Normandy.

The challenge will set off from HMS Excellent in Portsmouth, home to Navy Command HQ, and conclude four days later at the magnificent Pegasus Bridge and the village of Ranville, which was the first village to be liberated in France in 1944. 

The route takes us along the majestic coastline of Omaha, Juno and Sword beaches, taking in sites of significant military action including Point du Hoc and the Mulberry Harbour of Arromanches. We pay our respects to the Allies at the Normandy American Cemetery and Juno Beach Memorial. You'll cover just under 50 miles over the four days, which involves full days of trekking over a varied terrain of dunes, grass or tarmac. Our route finishes north of Caen via the iconic Pegasus Bridge and Ranville War Cemetery where we will lay a wreath, a poignant end to an unforgettable journey.
