Itinerary

Meet the tour leader at 15:00 hrs at the Malta 05:00 hrs at the Malta International Airport for check-in on your direct Airmalta flight to Lourdes departing at 17:10 hrs. Upon arrival at 19:35 hrs, your private coach will transfer you to your 3* centrally located Angelic Hotel in Lourdes. After check in, room allocation and dinner you may join the tour leader and the spiritual director for a short familiarisation walk of the area. You will surely notice that your hotel will be located a mere 150 meters away from the Sanctuaries. Return to the hotel for overnight

Today after breakfast, we offer you the opportunity to join the group for a full day excursion to the French city of Pau. Pau feels closer to a Riviera resort than a mountain town, with its grand villas, public parks and palm-lined promenades. You can visit the city’s chateau and its gardens (entrance extra) or walk along the main shopping area along the Boulevard des Pyrenees. Packed Lunch will be provided. Other good streets for local gifts and clothes are the pedestrianised areas of Rue Serviez and Rue Condeliers. Return to your hotel in time for dinner and overnight.

Today after breakfast, you will have some free time in Lourdes on this saintly day, in order for you to visit and admire the many sites related to the life of Saint Bernadette and also take part in the way of the Cross. Soon after lunch, you are encouraged to join your tour leader for a half day excursion to Gavarnie. The Cirque du Gavarnie is one of only a handful of sites around the world that are listed on the UNESCO world heritage site list for both its natural and cultural attributes. Return to your hotel in time for dinner and overnight.

After breakfast, you are encouraged to join the tour leader, the spiritual director and your fellow group members on a full day excursion to Biarritz, Ibardin and St Jean de Luz on the Atlantic coast of France. The coach will take you to Biarritz, a frontier town, just 22 kilometers from the border with Spain. Join the tour leader for a walk through the town and then proceed to the nearby village of Saint Jean de Luz, where one can stroll and enjoy himself in this typical setting overlooking the beach and the marina. Later head to the village of Col d’Ibardin, located on the border between Spain and France for some duty free shopping. Return to your hotel for dinner and overnight.

After breakfast you are encouraged to join thousands of other pilgrims by celebrating mass at the underground basilica dedicated to Pope Pius X. After lunch, you can join the tour leader for a half day excursion to Pont d’Espagne. Pont d’Espagne is at an altitude of 1500 meters and used to connect France and Spain through the mountains. Lake Gaube can be reached by means of a ski lift (extra). Back to your hotel for dinner.

After a short night sleep/rest, (rooms will be kept till the last minute), your private coach will take you to the airport for your direct Airmalta flight back to Malta departing at 04:00 hrs, and expected to arrive at 07:05 hrs.
