My name is Lena and I’ve been fortunate enough to call Normandy home for the past 19 years. When I first moved here, I had no idea that I would discover such a rich history in this region. As it turns out, the town I moved to was actually liberated by the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division during World War II. With family members who had taken part in the war and my own passion for history, I was naturally drawn to learning more about the D-Day landings and visiting the many museums in the area.
I have a Master’s degree in teaching and a Baccalaureate degree in tourism. For three years, I worked as a D-Day guide for local Normandy tour companies. During this time, I gained extensive knowledge about the D-Day landings, as well as the history and art of Normandy’s beautiful towns like Mont Saint Michel and Honfleur. I’m now a certified guide of France, and I’ve been running my own tour company since March 2017.
Meeting new people and sharing my knowledge and passion for Normandy is truly a pleasure for me. I don’t simply recite historical facts – I try to recreate the atmosphere of various battles by telling engaging stories and using maps and photos. My tours are tailored to your interests and pace, and I always strive to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience for my guests.
If you’re looking for a friendly, easy-going guide who is passionate about sharing the beauty and history of Normandy, I would love to have the pleasure of welcoming you on my tour.
