Duration: 9 Days
While you let your body float effortlessly in the seemingly magical waters of the Dead Sea, it’s your heart that will soar on this religious tour of Israel. The stories of Scripture don’t just come to life on this spiritual journey through the Holy Land – they truly jump off the page. See the location where Jesus was born, the field where the angels announced his birth, and the sites of some of the most repeated stories of the New Testament – including where Jesus walked on water, recruited four of his apostles, calmed the storm, and fed the multitude. From visiting the site of the first miracle in Cana to seeing the room of the Last Supper on Mount Zion, this religious journey will fuel your faith and feed your soul.
