Plages du débarquement - Mt St-Michel

Destination « The D-Day beaches »

This unique véloroute, or special cycle path, links two of Normandy's most iconic sights. It starts at the D-Day beaches, where the Allied troops famously landed in June 1944 in order to overthrow the German forces occupying France. It then takes you west to the glorious vision of the Mont St-Michel, the famed island crowned by a stunning medieval monastery. The route allows you to explore the two Normandy départements (or counties) of Calvados and Manche. Immerse yourself in the typical Norman atmosphere of this exceptional cycle path, which takes you along via beautiful, now-tranquil hedgerows, hills and valleys.

    The Véloroute Plages du Débarquement Mont Saint-Michel leads you along ways packed full of history, notably relating to the Second World War Battle of Normandy. The city of Bayeux was mercifully spared by air raids then and has retained much of its charming medieval atmosphere. As you cycle through the local countryside on this section, you can admire the glorious, typical architecture of the area around Bayeux known as the Bessin and take in the beautiful fields and hedgerows of the area known as the Bocage Normand. It all feels so quintessentially Norman, with its centuries-old pasturelands, its grazing cows and its delightful valleys through which many rivers flow.
