8-Day Battle of the Bulge Tour - 2020

Bulge_D8

Introduction

This special 8-day journey through the Ardennes Forest is an extended exploration of the Battle of the Bulge, America’s stiffest test in all of World War II. See where the 101st Airborne held the line during the siege of Bastogne, visit the finest museums in the world dedicated to the Ardennes Offensive and join the celebration as the citizens of Bastogne commemorate their American protectors with the “throwing of the nuts.” This dedicated tour affords time to take you off the beaten track, expanding our normal days in Belgium and including the stunning city of Luxembourg during its Christmas season.
Please note that the departure date is tentative until the schedule of events for the 76th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge are announced. The date may stay the same or be 3 or 4 days off from the one indicated here.
