Description

We’ll leave from Honfleur by coach for the beautiful Alabaster Coast, a natural heritage within the Pays de Caux and the estuary of the River Seine. We’ll pass by the high white cliffs bordered by the beaches and stones found in Impressionist paintings. As Guy de Maupassant wrote: “Nature has made these valleys; the rains of storms have ended with them in the shape of these ravines, trimming what was left of the cliff, excavating down to the sea, the bed of waters which acts as a passage for mankind.” Once in Étretat, we’ll set out for a hike across the cliffs to bask in the landscapes that have been dramatically shaped by weather and erosion. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy some free time to explore the city itself. At the end of our tour, we’ll return to the ship by coach.
