Explore Jerusalem and the surrounding areas in the spirit of green pilgrimage

Going on a pilgrimage is both a leisure and a spiritual experience

Jerusalem is one of the major Christian pilgrimage destinations in the world, and a must-see destination for anyone who wishes to delve deeper into a centuries-old tradition and nurture their spiritual side. Going on a pilgrimage is both a leisure and a spiritual experience. You can tap into your sense of adventure, witness awe-inspiring natural spectacles, and learn more about the local way of life. At the same time, a pilgrimage is a spiritual journey. As you walk across the ancient roads, you can experience the spiritual heritage of the Holy City, and reenergize yourself physically and mentally.

We believe in the strong spiritual significance of pilgrimages, and, at the same time, we want to organize them in a meaningful way that respects nature and local traditions. We are advocates of mindful tourism, and we encourage pilgrims to explore Jerusalem and the surrounding areas in a way that protects the environment.
