Canadian Battlefields of the Normandy Campaign
Normandy is the focus of our northern Battlefields tours - filled with the history of the Canadians' first encounter with Germany on the beaches at Juno. The fields and villages of this area are filled with the stories of the Normandy campaign. The area is rich in memorials and the outstanding Juno Beach Center. You will be be able to indulge in culinary delights here with outstanding restaurants, three local cheeses and you might even want to sample either a regionally distilled Apple Brandy called Calvados or an apple cider, Pommeau de Normandie. Both produced from the abundant apple orchards in northern France.
