From the depths of the Dead Sea to the Mount of Olives, this Christian focused journey into the heart of the Holy Land will captivate your senses and invigorate your spirit. Walk in Jesus’ footsteps as you discover the fascinating scenes as it was written in the Bible. From his humble home in Nazareth to the site of the Last Supper where he shared a Passover meal with his Apostles, this is your opportunity to experience what you’ve only read about. Experience the simple beauty of the site where the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary and announced that she would give birth to a boy-Emanuel. Take in the striking views of Sea of Galilee on Mount Beatitudes, the stunning location that brought crowds to sit at Jesus’ feet. Let your prayer rise up as incense at the Church of the Multiplication where Jesus fed thousands with a few loaves of bread and fish. Hike to the refreshing waterfalls at the foot of Mount Hermon and continue onwards to Jerusalem where cobblestone streets lead you to the most breathtaking of Biblical sites, including the Upper Room and the forlorn Garden of Gethsemane. Continue on to the Dead Sea to explore the once desolate area where David hid from Saul which he soulfully describes in the Book of Psalms. More than a trip, this is your sacred pilgrimage!
