Spiritual Journeys

Some journeys have a more meaningful purpose than just sightseeing and sunbathing. These journeys or pilgrimages are full of mystery and devotion and are designed to reach the soul. Andrew Daddo in an Ashram, North IndiaThis programme highlights the spiritual journeys our travellers have experienced all over the world.

We visit temples like Varanasi in India and learn about Hinduism and Sadhus; venture high into the Himalayas to meet monks in rural Buddhist monasteries. Presenters stay at ashrams, meditate and practice yoga.

Then its on to the Islamic world of the Middle East home to majestic Mosques like Istanbul’s famous Blue Mosque. We explore the three pivotal religions of Jerusalem and witness ‘bah mitzvah’. Our presenters join in the dramatic Easter celebrations in Guatemala, the eerie Semana Santa in Spain and re-enact the crucifixion in the Philippines.

From the world’s oldest churches in Ethiopia and the best-attended Sunday Mass in Rome to a pilgrimage to Mecca and celebrations with Inca worshipers in the Peruvian Andes, our presenters experience a host of spiritual journeys.
