Driving through the Bocage of Normandy

Jul 11 - Jul 20

The highly prestigious Royal Highland Regiment of Canada (The Black Watch), one of Canada's most famous regiments, were virtually wiped out during "Operation Spring" on July 25th, 1944 - but their remarkable story of strength, tragedy, and determination against all odds doesn't end here.

Join us, with historian and professor David O'Keefe, our one and only lead guide Glenn Edmonds, and special guest guide Joël Stoppels, on this special journey retracing the footsteps of Canada's most prestigious regiments from the beaches of Normandy to the Liberation in Groningen.
