La Galerie du Caramel in Isigny-sur-mer, welcomes you for a discovery of the production of its famous caramels. From the milk harvest, to packaging and manufacturing. Through this visit, a whole universe is revealed to you, we tell you about the history of cream, Norman cows, the town of Isigny (town of Walt Disney family!), butter, oysters, apples … In short, you understand, you are invited to a meeting with all the richness of a region.
At the end of the visit, the participants leave with a surprise!
At noon, river ride aboard La rosée du soleil and lunch
Aboard La Rosée du Soleil, The boatmen of Cotentin, take you to the heart of the marsh to discover the exceptional flora and fauna of the Marais du Cotentin Natural Park. Your guides tell you with passion and enthusiasm, the life of the marsh which, although so sweet today, has known much noisier and more difficult days. It is indeed here in the heart of the marsh that many soldiers fell during the airdrops of the landing. Like all the local population, we do not forget the sacrifice of their men. To remember these moments through this trip on the Taute rive is also to pay tribute to them.
Lunch at la maison des Ormes
Take a break and enjoy a lunch of local produce at the Maison des Ormes along the river (Sept. to March only).
Guided visit of the Normandy Victory Museum
Because here the land is marked by history, your discovery day cannot be complete without diving into the history offered by the Normandy Victory Museum. Beyond the history of the Second World War and the D-Day, it is a focus on the battle of the hedges that we offer.
Our guide, a member of the museum, will take you on a tour of some thirty staged events, with sound and orchestration down to the finest detail. He delivers to you with passion and pedagogy pieces of history, of the great but also of the small history, the local one, that lived by the people of here. During this tour you are invited to observe more than 15,000 authentic collection objects collected by the founders of the museum. Some can even be taken in hand to better understand what could have been the life or the mission of these men and women during the war.
