Just a short train ride from Paris, Normandy is mostly famous for its legendary history. From the dramatically evocative World War II landing beaches to the historic city of Bayeux and the notorious Mont Saint-Michel, every place is extremely touching. Even though, Normandy is mainly recognized for its history, it also boasts an amazing coastline, beautiful villages and peaceful countryside. Join us and experience it all on a bike tour of a lifetime.
