Holy Land Trust - Travel & Encounter

The Travel & Encounter program of the Holy Land Trust provides travel opportunities of all kinds, for all people. They present the Holy Land in a way that is quite unique, unexplored and uninhibited. The tours can be tailored to the individual or the group. Discover what lies behind the scenes in modern day Palestinian society. There are unparalleled opportunities to become acquainted with local culture and language through the home stay programs and extensive network of NGO affiliates. Through visits to both Palestinian and Israeli communities, sharing meals and candid conversations with local leaders and community members, touring the holy land, and participating in volunteering opportunities, you can discover the beauty of a country rich in culture and history.

An extensive network of partnerships with NGOs, peace activists and political leaders will provide you with unprecedented access to an insider’s understanding of the Holy land.

Since the year 2000, the Travel & Encounter department has rapidly developed a reputation as a reputable organization providing unique and life changing experiences in the Holy Land.
