10 days
London, Normandy, and Amsterdam

From arriving by boat at Normandy, to walking along the beaches of Juno, to travelling to Amsterdam, this tour follows the journey an Allied soldier might have taken during the Second World War. It tells the story chronologically and ends with a visit to Bergen op Zoom, the former Canadian Headquarters during the Battle of the Scheldt—a pivotal event leading to the liberation of the Netherlands. Students and cadets will have the opportunity to meet with the local community there and discover firsthand how liberating the Netherlands forever changed Canada’s relationship with the Dutch people.
