Holy Land

Holy Land

For most pilgrims, Israel epitomises the ultimate pilgrimage destination and it remains the one location that will always be popular no matter what - the true exemplar of religious activities on the Earth. The opportunity for you to lead a group of like minded pilgrims to see for themselves firsthand so many of the sights that are written about in the Bible, has to count as one of life's most moving and memorable experiences.


Many pilgrims who make this journey feel that they already know the area, having read about it so many times, and we are never surprised to get feedback saying that they discovered a feeling of belonging during their pilgrimage. You can choose to take our suggested itineraries as they are featured, in reverse order, or adapt them to your group's exact requirements.
