Overview

Book
France’s enchanting and austere northern coast offers a landscape beloved by the Impressionists, with its white coastal cliffs, towering cathedrals, shimmering tidal flats, and fragrant apple orchards. In this scenic country, worn trails lead to seaside headlands, where you look out at “la Manche”—the English Channel—and the imposing cliffs of Étretat, a favorite subject of Monet. Trace the remarkable history of D-day along the shores of Normandy during a walk from Omaha Beach to the hulking ruins of German bunkers, as your guide recounts how events unfolded that fateful morning. The unspoiled Cotentin Peninsula is reminiscent of Ireland with its granite coastline, soaring seabirds, and views of the Isle of Alderney, the closest British island to the French coast. This being France, the cuisine is exquisite: a medley of Norman cheeses, Calvados liqueur, fresh mussels, sweet and savory crêpes, and delicious tarte tatin. It’s a feast that pairs perfectly with a panorama that is sure to inspire you for years to come.

Highlights

    • Walk the wet sands leading out to the tidal island of Mont St. Michel and its iconic pyramid-shaped monastery, enjoying views of protected nesting grounds for seabirds along the way.
    • Stay in the historic departure ports of French explorers Samuel de Champlain and Jacques Cartier.
    • Enjoy coastal walks every day from scenery beloved by French Impressionists, to D-Day Beaches, to the rugged Breton coast.
