For travelers looking to add a spiritual element to their vacations, Globus and Cosmos offer a portfolio of 14 faith-based journeys throughout Europe, Israel and Jordan, including a new itinerary in Spain: The Camino, A Walking Journey for the Soul.
“A guided itinerary highlighting 72 miles, this new tour invites no more than 20 travelers to walk the Camino De Santiago also known as St. James’ Way,” said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands, in press materials. “A pilgrimage route for more than 1,000 years, this journey of a lifetime guides them through the Iberian Peninsula to the ‘end of the world’ [or] what we now refer to as the Atlantic Ocean.”
Travelers on this 11-day pilgrimage will begin in Madrid before taking a train to Sarria, their starting point. On the third day, they will embark on their walk, venturing through the varied landscapes, small towns and villages that make up this UNESCO World Heritage site, including Barbadelo, Portomarin, Lestedo, Leboreiro, Melide, Ribadiso de Baixo, Arzua, Amenal, San Marcos, Santiago de Compostela, Finisterre and Muxia. Guests will walk an average of 12 miles per day while on this journey.
In addition to this new faith-based offering, Globus and Cosmos continue to cater to a large faith-based audience with vacations such as Globus’ Journey through the Holy Land; Footsteps of Apostle Paul and Marian Shrines of Europe, as well as Cosmos’ The European Reformation; Holy Land Discovery and Spiritual Highlights of Italy. In 2020, the Globus family of brands will also offer three travel style and 14 itineraries to experience the Passion Play in Oberammergau.
“With the perfect balance of faith and fun, we’re inviting travelers to retrace the steps of Martin Luther in Germany, then reflect on the journey while cruising down the Rhine,” said Nisbet also in press materials. “They can enter the dark cave of the Apocalypse, then watch the sun rise on the whitewashed walls through the Greek Isles. Or, follow the Way of the Cross in Jerusalem before floating down the Dead Sea.”
