The Holy Land Pilgrimage, by Air - 8 Days

Holy Land Pilgrimage

​​Of all Christian pilgrimages, the Holy Land must surely be the most desired.  Since the first day of that empty Tomb – pilgrims from all over the world have made their journey of faith to that sacred spot to ponder, wonder and above all to re-live the life of Jesus.

This is the land where Jesus was born, suffered, died and rose from the dead for our salvation. Many pilgrims, in Origen’s words, wished “to walk in the footsteps of the Master”

The land is a mixture of rocky mountains, fruitful plains, sea coasts and spectacular deserts as well as containing a spiritual and historical treasure trove. From the Mt of Olives to the shores of the Sea of Galilee and green oasis, it is full of contrasts.
