Description
A historical insight of Canadian Battles on D-Day.
Accompanied by one of our English speaking driver/guides, get a historical insight of Canadian battles on D-Day on this full day D-Day Normandy day tour. Did you know Canadian troops had the second highest number of casualties after the Americans during the D-Day landings and the Battle of Normandy? The French certainly owe them a lot, and they played a crucial part in the liberation of Caen.

Reach the Juno sector, its beach & museum as an introduction to the tour:
As an introduction to this D-Day landing tour, you will reach Juno Beach, where Canadian Armed Forces landed on the morning of June 6, 1944. Even though German troops were not very present in this sector, the Canadian Army was welcomed with landmines and obstacles which killed close to half of the men. However, after that, the Allied troops did not lose hope and made the furthest advancement by the end of the day, about 16km inland. Unfortunately, the next day the Germans were ready to fight to push the Allies back to the sea. From the Normandy battlefield sites, our guide will tell you all the details and how the Allied forces finally managed to keep gaining ground.

Chart the story of Canadians through photos, archives & artifacts:
Located close to Juno Beach, the Juno beach center is the next stop of our full day D-Day tour. It is the only Canadian museum in the D-Day beaches area. There, you will be able to chart the story of Canadians through photos, archives and artifacts. Remains of German bunkers can still be seen on the beach. The museum expo goes further than just the Normandy battle history and retraces the involvement of Canadian Armed Forces all along World War II. Visitors can also learn more about Canada today.

Visit Ardenne Abbey and pay homage to fallen Canadian soldiers
You will also explore the Abbey d’Ardenne, where Canadian troops were held prisoners by the Germans and executed within the church’s walls. This act was qualified as a crime of war and Kurt Meyer, who was thought to be responsible for the murders, was later sentenced to life in prison. He died a few years later.
