RACE OVERVIEW"D-Day Normandy Battlefields Experience"
You will have the honor and the privilege of riding in a period correct jeep on trails of Normandy, the very place where the jeep evolved in June of 1944. The jeep provides us with an incomparable tool to evoke emotion and awaken the senses. The unmistakable sight and sounds of the Willy`s jeep better known as the Go-Devil will complete the sensation of authenticity. You will become an actor borrowing time in this realistic and live museum.
The local architecture of Normandy instantly immerses you in the past. Not much has changed in this area since June 6, 1944. Every palatial estate has its history that the owners are happy to tell their stories while welcoming you warmly. Many of these historical residences were requisitioned during the Nazi occupation, and the narratives of battles to drive out the enemy are very interesting and unique.
As part of your stay you will have the option to live like a soldier would have in 1944. The camp is intended to resemble the ones that would have been setup on the soil of Normandy when advancing allied troops were moving though the fields. You will learn survival techniques used by the solders and will get to know the fresh and pleasant nights of Normandy.
This unique adventure will offer you many surprises one being encounters with witnesses of the past. Whether they are veterans of the military or a civilian witness it is always with the same emotion that they share their stories of the past. It is no surprise that it is often these moments that guests keep memories of for a long time to come.
Although our stay happens in immersion, we do not deprive a taste of the French gastronomy, Normandy offers wonderful French cooking. The seafood is a local specialty along with fabulous French wine of course!
