Operation Chastise 16th - 17th May 1943

The tour starts at Dover where we will meet for introductions and the briefing before catching an early ferry crossing to Calais. We will make quick progress riding through France, Belgium and Holland before reaching our destination of Soest in the Ruhr Valley. Here our three * half board biker friendly hotel will include a 3 course set menu dinner each evening and secure parking for our bikes for the duration of our stay.

We will then spend four days in the heart of the Ruhr Valley, exploring the background and reasons for the raid, the technology and planning, its status in aviation warfare history and its consequences for both sides of the conflict. What was the result of the raid and did it ultimately achieve its mission objectives? You will be able to make an informed decision based on the facts presented to you during this tour by our experienced guide and get a real feel for what it may have been like for those on the ground and in the air at the time of the raid!

This fully guided tour will take you to all three primary dam targets; the Mohne, Sorpe and Eder Dams with our experienced and knowledgeable MSL Tours Guide available to show you the terrain, answer your questions and deliver the facts. Will also have an MSL Tours Associate on hand (subject to guest numbers) to ensure that the trip runs to plan. Finally there will also be time to explore the hospitality and delightful countryside in this area of Germany and to reflect on the 75th anniversary of this incisive, historic WW11 bomber mission and its impact on both sides of the conflict.
