D-Day Normandy landing
Normandy landings

The Normandy landings on June 6th 1944 (termed D-Day) were part of the allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the liberation of German – occupied north – Western Europe from Nazi control, and contributed to the allied victory on the Western Front.

This eight day tour will provide both the riders and our wounded, injured and sick servicemen and servicewomen with a great insight into the history of D-Day. We set up camp at an award winning  5* campsite on Utah Beach. High standard amenities including hot showers, swimming pools both indoor and out, bar, restaurant and mini market for your convince. Tents will be ready to use upon arrival and three meals a day are freshly prepared.

We will be visiting the beaches, museums and attractions to take you back in time to the events of the 6th June 1944.

Amazing experience

For a long time ive wanted to do somthing for our ex servicemen. I found that Bike Tours for the Wounded along side BC motorcycle tours was perfect. Not only did i vet to see how my money was used to help but i was able to meet and become friends with the people i was supporting.I can honestly say there was no better feeling. The tour it self was somthing special. The history and knolege of the guids was fantastic. The camping was second to none and food was plentiful and fresh.I enjoyed it so much ive already booked an American tour later this year. The office staff were so helpful and polite and suportive through out the whole experiance.I cant wait for my next trip! Thanks guys and please keep up the amazing work with our ex servicemen.

The way to see Normandy

I have been to Normandy and France many, many times but when I heard Bike Tours 4 The Wounded were planning to use BC Motorcycle Tours Ltd to take some of our wounded injured and sick military personnel out there for the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day landings well I just had to sign up. I had been out several of BC Tours American challenges in the past and I know them to be a professional, well organised and reliable tour company so I knew that I was in good hands . Every thing was laid on with a fantastic campsite as our base. it was an amazing tour! Being on our bikes meant we were able to get through the traffic jams and the chaos that went with the huge crowds from all over the world that had come for this event. Because you are camping albeit 5 star camping, everybody mucks in and strangers quickly become good friends.
At the time of writing this I have been on 3 of the Normandy tours and I am booked in for the 74th and the 75th Anniversary tours as well. Why? Because there is something special about being in Normandy at the time of the D-day anniversary that you don't get visiting at any other time of the year and at the same time helping some of a wounded, sick or injured veterans to share that experience, that's a real bonus but its the tour company doing all the leg work, the planning and troubleshooting meaning you don't have to worry about anything that really makes it a special and a stress free experience

A great experience

Travelled to Normandy by ferry was very apprehensive but the team supported me though my time away. The guys who were my riders we fantastic. I felt very safe on the motorcycle as we rode down the country lanes in Normandy. As an injured veteran this was a great experience, I was taken out of comfort zone and it was worth every minute to feel alive again.
