Activity Overview
Enjoy a guided food tour around Normandy taking you beyond Mont Saint Michel and the infamous WW2 landing beaches. To the French - Normandy is the region of France that represents the good life. To the French, Normandy evokes green pastures, grazing cows, lush grass, gentle hills blossoming trees ... Normandy is an extremely picturesque region. And they are right!

Normandy is home to the world-famous Camembert cheese. Camembert is a soft cheese which name sounds like it tastes. According to your pallet, it can be gentle and bubbly to sharp and rough ... just exquisite!

Normandy is also home to Cognacs cousin: Calvados. An apple brandy aged in oak barrels. Calvados is made by apple cider distillation. Cider is made with apple juice; apples locally grow in apple orchards throughout the hills of Normandy.

Our tours take you to the heart of Normandy to discover these local products. You will meet the locals that produce these products and taste lots of these exquisite French culinary products!
