What to expect

Retrace the footsteps of the Canadian troops who fought for the liberation of France on this small-group day trip to Juno Beach and the D-Day sites in Normandy.

On this tour, you’ll walk on the sand of Juno Beach, explore inside German bunkers, visit the Juno Beach Center, and pay your respects to those who sacrificed everything at the Bény-Sur-Mer Canadian Cemetery.

On June 6th, 1944 the largest seaborne invasion ever attempted in history took place. The Allied troops waged an extremely difficult attack on the German forces who were entrenched in bunkers along the coast of Normandy. More than 14.000 Canadian soldiers landed or parachuted into France on that day and helped win the Battle of Normandy.

Whether you’re a military history fan or someone who is just curious about how the events really played out on D-Day, this tour will help you to better appreciate and remember the remarkable acts of courage and bravery that took place on Juno Beach.
