Escorted tour companies Globus and Cosmos offer a collection of faith-based vacations around the world.
In 2020, the Globus family of brands’ portfolio of 14 faith-based itineraries throughout Europe, Israel and Jordan will include The Camino, A Walking Journey for the Soul, a new 11-day, small group tour offered by Cosmos.
“We are especially pleased to have added this new tour during which a maximum of 20 travellers will walk the 115 km portion of the Camino de Santiago known as St. James’ Way,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus family of brands in Canada. “They’ll spend two nights in Madrid before taking a train to their starting point in Sarria. During the walk they’ll experience the wonderful scenery and picturesque towns and villages that have made this a UNESCO World Heritage Site.” Participants will walk an average of fewer than 20 kms per day, she added.
Back by demand
In addition to this new itinerary, Globus and Cosmos continue to cater to a large faith-based audience with such popular vacations as Globus’ Journey through the Holy Land; Footsteps of Apostle Paul and Marian Shrines of Europe as well as Cosmos’ Pilgrimage to Lourdes; Holy Land Discovery and Spiritual Highlights of Italy.
“We have been offering faith-based vacations for many years and see that these customers travel for so many reasons,” adds Bishop. “Many of course wish to connect more strongly with their religion, but others want to learn more about culture, history and their own family traditions.”
In 2020, the Globus family of brands also offers travellers three travel styles and an unprecedented 14 itineraries to experience the Passion Play in Oberammergau. A few spaces remain on select departures, but will sell out soon.
