Pin It
Since 1066, when William the Conqueror mounted a successful invasion of England from its scenic shores, Normandy has played a pivotal role in European history.

We’ll delve deeply into that history on this biking vacation, cycling from the now-tranquil beaches made famous by D-Day landings … to Saint-Malo, the legendary “City of Corsairs” … to breathtaking Mont Saint-Michel, with its glorious medieval abbey. As we pedal through lush pasturelands and charming villages, we’ll pause to sample award-winning cider and Cancale oysters—and connect with local residents, who offer insight into the storied culture and time-honored traditions of Normandy and Brittany.
