Considered the crown jewel of the Channel Islands, prepare to step back in time with a visit to beautiful Sark. With cars prohibited, the Island’s unspoilt landscape and charming unpaved roads are best explored on bike or horse drawn carriage.
This walk retraces the exact routes of the two raids carried out by both British and French commandos during WWII, which ended in tragedy. Also visit the cemetery and the German defences at Creux Harbour, with breakfast and lunch stops.
Operation BASALT: Walking in the footsteps of Commandos
