In the easternmost part of the Mediterranean, the island of Cyprus offers an incredible blend of ancient archeological sites, icon-filled monasteries and historic houses of worship, all set against a backdrop of black pine forest and beach-fringed turquoise seas. According to Greek mythology the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, Cyprus has been coveted and fought over by a succession of admirers: Mycenaeans, Egyptians, Assyrians and Persians just to name some. The former British colony was most recently fought over by the Turks and the Greeks and remains divided. A result of this turbulent past is an impressive range of cultural treasures, from Crusader castles to the tomb of Mohammed’s aunt.

The island’s geography, plentiful coastline with a mountainous center and beautiful national parks, offers so much. Long summers with mild spring and autumns that extend from early March to late November. Whether you’re a sunbather, a scenery seeker, a fan of Greek mythology, biblical follower of St. Paul or just someone who loves learning about how people lived in ancient times, this island nation won’t disappoint. Join us for walks in this beautiful setting, meals in local tavernas, historical walks in Byzantine villages and worship in age-old monasteries whilst getting to know the friendly locals.

Organising a Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage is our speciality and in 2023 we celebrate our 40th year in business – so we must be doing something right! We work with all denominations and are happy to tailor every pilgrimage to the needs of each particular church. For instance, some parties would plan one or two Eucharists during their pilgrimage but others will choose a daily celebration. In the Holy Land, your focus may be the Galilean ministry or a re-creation of Holy Week in Jerusalem. You tell us what your particular interest is and we will recommend an itinerary
