Customize your Adventure

We can tailor your Holy Land experience to emphasize your request. Want to stay at high-end hotels? Or maybe you want to travel on a budget? Want to meet local leaders in the area to discuss economics, history, or the region's politics? Or maybe you want to move from site to site and see as much as you can while you're here? Perhaps you want to walk the Samaritan road or bike around the sea of Galilee? Or maybe you want the ultimate relaxation trip to focus on Jesus. We can set up the journey of a lifetime with our friends at The Holy Land Trust.

CATHOLIC PILGRIMAGE

The Catholic holy land tour is an opportunity to explore the spiritual underpinnings of the Holy Land, including how geography, history, and culture have shaped individual and theological understandings. Those who join us will be able to engage with locals at a more authentic, personal level, coming to a deeper appreciation of their experiences, their understanding of God’s plan, and their sense of how we can be brought together through love. An exploration of the Holy Land's history, culture, and spirituality can make this a profound experience, helping participants build a deeper and more grounded faith.

This Catholic pilgrimage to the holy land will be a unique experience, allowing you to pray as you walk the footsteps of Jesus beside other Catholics. Masses will be performed at sites throughout the Holy Land.

HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE

To walk in the Holy Land, to experience “the Fifth Gospel” of pilgrimage, to meet and engage with the local people, the “living stones” of the Holy Land… is far more than an inspiring tour. It is a rite of passage in one’s faith journey that will define life before and after. The tour programs of Holy Land Trust began nearly 20 years ago with a historic retracing of the “Journey of the Magi” from Iraq to Bethlehem and have carried the same mark of authentic, individual, and purpose-made pilgrimages for people of all faiths ever since.

Our spiritual pilgrimage programs range from open-brochure bookings to custom-made experiences for faith communities, small groups, families, couples, and individuals. Each program offers a unique experience designed for the specific needs of the pilgrims or pilgrims. Members of every faith, denomination, and confession are welcome to join us, based on their needs, interests, length of time, and price range. 

Est. Price: $2300 - 2,500 per person
Duration: 10 Days

SUMMER ENCOUNTER

Immerse Yourself and Experience Indigenous Culture

The Summer Encounter is our longest-running and most successful travel program.

Though a wide range of programming is provided to engage participants, those who join us will also have plenty of free time to learn and explore at their own pace. There will also be opportunities simply to relax and have fun with both fellow travelers and the new friends in Bethlehem that you will make along the way.

Bet Lahem Live Festival 

BELIEVE


The largest creative resistance festival in Palestine


Over 25,000 people from across the globe come to Bethlehem Live to join in innovative social change
For four days dozens of panels and workshop convene to re-strategize ushering in an authentic community of justice and equality


In cooperation with the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and Bethlehem Municipality, Holy Land Trust organizes an annual summer artistic and cultural festival in the heart of Bethlehem. The reason this program was initiated is, despite the critical importance of the city both historically and religiously, Bethlehem previously lacked any annual cultural festival. Given that Bethlehem is one of the primary tourist attractions in all of Palestine, this seemed like a significant oversight.
