Globus and Cosmos are offering a collection of faith-based vacations around the world that represent inspiring places to bow heads and lift hearts. For 2021, the Globus family of brands’ has unveiled 15 faith-based Small-Group Discovery tours throughout Europe, Israel and Jordan. Globus, Cosmos and Avalon Waterways are also offering travelers 13 itineraries to witness the Passion Play in Oberammergau, with reserved seating and premier accommodations, in 2022.

“Our faith-based vacations complement the stories of yesterday with the joys of today,” said Scott Nisbet, chief executive officer for the Globus family of brands in a press statement. “Catering to 24 or fewer travelers, these Small-Group Discovery tours include visits to sites of spiritual, cultural and historical significance with immersive experiences and insider perspectives while following the way of the Cross in Jerusalem; floating on the Dead Sea or taking a healing bath in Lourdes.”

The Globus family of brands is also inviting travelers to add a little faith and big traditions to their 2022 plans. A theatrical tradition in Oberammergau, Germany since 1634, the uplifting Passion Play is performed only once a decade in this quaint Bavarian village. While two thousand actors, singers and musicians are preparing for their roles in this famous reenactment of the crucifixion of Christ, seats are selling quickly in anticipation of their postponed performance.

“Whether travelers choose a Globus vacation, a Cosmos getaway or an Avalon Waterways river cruise, these special itineraries include accommodations in the heart of Oberammergau at the Romantik Hotel and a dedicated office in this historic hamlet to help travelers make the most of their stay,” said Nisbet. “And, just like the seats of the Passion Play theater, our Oberammergau vacations are filling-up quickly.”
