D-Day 75th Anniversary Trip
    

   On June 6, 1944 150,000 Allied Forces invaded designated locations along the 80 km beaches of Normandy France in attempts to end the occupation of Germany in Western Europe.

Along the Normandy shores at Gold, Sword, Utah, Omaha and Juno Beaches in a coordinated effort, the Allied forces from different battalions were ready to attack. Of these troops, 14000 of these soldiers were Canadian and played an integral part of the success at Juno Beach. The first wave of Canadians landed on a landing craft and fought bravely through artillery, machine guns, and mines but managed to invade the Germans located in the bunkers and pill boxes on shore. Canadian paratroopers, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force fought together to achieve victory.

Exclusive Commemorative Trip

Join us for this tour as 75 years later we visit Juno Beach where
the brave Canadian soldiers fought for our freedom and gave the ultimate sacrifice.

​We will travel by coach to Juno Beach where we will participate in the Commemoration Ceremony, and visit Canada House, the first house liberated by Canadian soldiers on D-Day.
The guided tour will bring you back in history to many significant events in WWII including visits to Dieppe, Caen, and Canadian cemeteries along the Normandy coast. Part of this tour offers an opportunity for a select group to experience arriving on Juno Beach by a landing craft.

At the end of the day, its forward elements stood deeper into France than those of any other division. The opposition the Canadians faced was stronger than that of any other beach save Omaha. That was an accomplishment in which the whole nation could take considerable pride.
