Itinerary

Meet the tour leader at 17:00 hrs for check-in on your Air Malta flight to Lourdes departing at 19:00 hrs. Upon arrival, your private coach will take you to your centrally located 4* Hotel for check in and room allocation before overnight.

Today, after breakfast, join the tour leader for an excursion to the shores of the famous Bay of Biscay, by visiting Biarritz, Col d’Ibardin and Saint Jean de Luz. Start by driving to Biarritz, an elegant seaside town, where one can admire the Rocher de la Vierge; a rocky outcrop topped with a stature of the Virgin Mary. Packed lunch will be provided. Later continue your way to Saint Jean de Luz, before reaching Col d’Ibardin for some spectacular views and souvenir shopping. Return to your hotel in time for dinner (option) and overnight.

After breakfast, join thousands of other pilgrims and your spiritual director for the concelebration of Mass at the underground Basilica of Saint Pius X. Later, join the tour leader for an optional excursion to Pont d’Espagne. At an altitude of 1500m, this gateway to the Pyrenees National Park, Pont d’Espagne is amongst the most priced sites of such a park. You may than take the Gaube chair lift (extra) that will take you quietly to the lake above. Return to Lourdes in time for dinner (optional) and overnight.

Today, after breakfast another optional excursion awaits you. Join your fellow group members for a trip 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. Later visit one of the shopping complexes on your way back to Lourdes before dinner (optional) and overnight.

Today, after breakfast and check out (safe luggage room will be made available) join the tour leader for a half day optional excursion to Lac d’Estaing and Col du Salour. During your time enjoy the Pyrenees and their surrounding landscape. Return to Lourdes for your last few hours of this amazing experience.
