Globus & Cosmos Reveal Religious Small-Group Discoveries for 2021 + Premier Accommodations for Oberammergau in 2022

TORONTO, Ontario – August 11, 2020 – For those looking for a deeper, more meaningful travel experience, Globus and Cosmos offer an enlightening collection of faith-based vacations around the world that represent inspiring places to bow heads and lift hearts. In 2021, the Globus family of brands’ has unveiled a robust portfolio of 15, faith-based Small-Group Discovery tours throughout Europe, Israel and Jordan. Globus, Cosmos and Avalon Waterways are also offering travellers 13 itineraries to witness the Passion Play in Oberammergau, with reserved seating and premier accommodations, in 2022.

“Catering to 24 or fewer travellers, our faith-based vacations complement the stories of yesterday with the joys of today,” said Stéphanie Bishop, managing director of the Globus family of brands. “These special, Small-Group Discovery tours invite travellers to explore their faith on uplifting vacations that include visits to sites of spiritual, cultural and historical significance.”

The Globus family of brands is also inviting travellers 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 moving, postponed performance.

“Whether travellers choose to enjoy Oberammergau by tour or river cruise, our itineraries – which will sell-out quickly – include accommodations in the heart of Oberammergau at the Romantik Hotel and a dedicated office in this historic hamlet to help them make the most of their stay,” said Bishop.

Other, popular faith-based vacations that fill-up, year-over-year, include:

  • Journey through the Holy Land (Globus)
  • Footsteps of Apostle Paul (Globus)
  • Marian Shrines of Europe (Globus)
  • The Camino: A Walking Journey for the Soul (Cosmos)
  • The European Reformation (Cosmos)
  • Spiritual Highlights of Italy (Cosmos)
