Bible Land Pilgrimages

Discover the Lands of the Bible: Holy Land Pilgrimages, Greece & Turkey

Nawas was founded 74 years ago on the concept of taking pilgrims to the Holy Land and it’s still our most popular pilgrimage. Our travelers have the added benefit of working with a company with seven decades of experience planning and operating pilgrimages. We have our own office in Jerusalem offering clients on-site quality control and immediate, personalized service, and the most competitive prices.

Pope Francis’ Holy Land pilgrimage in May 2014 encouraged Catholics everywhere to follow his lead and make their own plans to trace the path of Jesus — including many pilgrims who have traveled with Nawas.

The Holy Father said,

 You, dear brothers and sisters, are called to follow the Lord with joy in this Holy Land!

The Holy Land

Following in the footsteps of Jesus in the Holy Land is the spiritual experience of a lifetime. Here’s a chance to walk where Jesus walked, where every page of the Bible comes alive. On a Holy Land pilgrimage you can cruise on the Sea of Galilee, climb the Mount of Olives and view the Old City of Jerusalem, walk the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, stroll in the Garden of Gethsemane and more.

Steps of St. Paul in Greece & Turkey

When St. Paul converted to Christianity, the religion he once persecuted, he became a “slave of Jesus Christ” and discovered “the glorious freedom of the children of God.” As he traveled throughout Greece and Asia Minor, he brought Jesus’ message to the masses and established new churches wherever he went. Now you can trace St. Paul’s amazing evangelical journeys with Nawas in Greece and Turkey, including ancient Ephesus.
