Greece

Whilst one of the most popular countries to visit in Europe, few people who are attracted to Greece’s sparkling blue waters, dramatic coastlines and friendly hospitality are aware of the depth and significance of its lands and history. They know of the Ancient Greeks, yet its biblical importance, particularly in the lives of the Apostles St. John and St. Paul is rarely spoken amidst the tourist hustle and bustle. Escape from that and join one of our spiritual journeys that will still take in the crystal waters, stunning coastline, welcoming folk, wonderful fresh produce and relaxed culture, yet delve into the realms of the past and some of the most important Christian events in history.

Greece occupies an area of 131,940 sq km (50,942 sq miles), and has a coastline of 13,676 km (8,498 miles). It has more than 2,000 islands, 170 of which are permanently inhabited. Greece is bordered by Turkey, Albania, Macedonia, and Bulgaria. Greece is a mountainous country with about 80% of its territory being characterized as mountainous. The islands are situated in the Ionian Sea, the Mediterranean Sea as well as the Aegean Sea. The islands are usually grouped into clusters, and the clusters are; the North Aegean islands (situated near the Turkish west coast), and the Cyclades (located in the central region of the Aegean Sea). Other clusters are the Dodecanese (found between Turkey and Crete), the Argo-Saronic islands (situated on the Saronic Gulf), the Ionian islands (located in the Ionian Sea) and the Sporades (located near coastal Euboea).

Organising a Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage is our speciality and in 2023 we celebrate our 40th year in business – so we must be doing something right!
