OUR TOURS

Experience a life-changing journey to the Holy Land.

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.

SUMMER ENCOUNTER

Immerse Yourself and Experience Indigenous Culture

The Summer Encounter is our longest-running and most successful travel program. Participants are invited to discover Palestine through an immersive experience founded on three core principles: faith, culture, and justice. You are invited to join us for one of two back-to-back sessions taking place over the summer.

Based in the city of Bethlehem, participants are invited to live with a local host family; study Arabic with Palestinian teachers; and learn about the history, culture, and politics of the region through educational lectures and guided tours. 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.

Est. Price: $3,900 per person
Duration: 22 days
Included: 
Land transportation, accommodations during tour, meals, entrance fees, shared double room, licensed English speaking guide.

OLIVE HARVEST

Stand in Solidarity with Indigenous Communities

Every year, the Israeli military and Israeli settler movement uproots, poisons, and sets fire to hundreds of olive trees. Holy Land Trust’s Olive Harvest Program is organized as a means to stand in solidarity with the indigenous communities who wish to remain on their lands despite this harassment. This effort to help Palestinian farmers is one of our longest-running programs and remains vital and necessary even to this day. Whether they come for a one day trip or for two weeks, each year we bring hundreds of participants to go out with Palestinian farmers to pick olives from their groves. Join us in the fall to help us with this critical project. While you are here, you can participate in one of our fact-finding tours. This will help situate your olive harvest experience within the broader political and cultural context in the Holy Land.

FACT-FINDING TOUR

This tour invites you to see firsthand what is going on in Palestine and Israel.  You will wake up to the smell of freshly brewed Arabic Coffee being prepared daily by your host family before visiting religious and historical sites in the Holy Land. As you travel through the region, you will hear stories from the people who live here and taste the incredible food and cuisine of Palestine. You will meet politicians, clergy, and community leaders, as well as members of peace organizations and activists representing the different sides in this unique Holy Land experience.

What to Expect

The information provided on your tour will also provide a better understanding of Israel’s program of settler colonialism and indigenous resistance to domination. You will tour with other international participants, visit NGOs, and meet civic leaders on-the-ground in places like Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Ramallah. This sets the table for you to build a network of other individuals dedicated to a just peace and to stay fully immersed in the program and engaged in meaningful ways.

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.
