Next Gen Normandy

Educational Travel

Kate Coffey, owner of EDU Trips, and Normandy-based tour manager/guide, Geert Van den Bogaert, created Next Gen Normandy in 2021 allowing visitors to benefit from their over 40 years of combined experience in the educational travel field.

Their group program and individual tours to Normandy are built around an extensive network of local friends and guides, first established by the educational not-for-profit Normandy Allies, Inc., which operated a yearly travel program to Normandy between 1999 and 2019.

Designed to welcome students, teachers and life-long learners to the historic beaches and bocage of Normandy to promote greater historical understanding of the 1944 liberation of Normandy, Next Gen Normandy wants to merge this successful model with a renewed vision for the future and offer a unique educational travel experience for the 21st Century.
