I will meet you in Caen at 9AM

Then, let's go visit Ornavik, a Viking Historical Village rebuilt as it was then.
Young children and adults will love to see these simple log cabins and people living there in the summer.
A true reanactement of Viking's everyday life in Normandy !

Then I will drive you to Carentan Port to get on board a true Drakkar, the "Dreknor".
You will sail along the river and then by the coast for about three hours in a real Drakkar.

A great experience !

Lunch near Carentan.

Then, let's go to Cambremer on the Cider's Road to visit the best Calvados producer this year.
There you will learn how this fantastic alchol is made and of course plenty of calvados tastings ( for adults only ;o) )

I will stop nearby this farm so that you really enjoy the beauty of the "Pays d'Auge" by wandering into the small paths and fields.

If time allows we'll go to Honfleur ( once a Viking settlement ) to see this beautiful place on the seaside.

Back in Caen by 6-7PM
