Join me this summer to enjoy some of the most fabulous pilgrimage treks in Europe

Along the way, our participants rated our services….we’re delighted the response.

The year was 1984 and a friend asked me if I’d like to go with him for $500 on a familiarization tour to the Holy Land. I said, “of course,” and my love of group travel was born. I led five subsequent trips to Israel/Palestine, then led trips to Egypt, Turkey, and Italy. I loved helping people push the boundaries of their worlds in adventures of discovery. In 2008 I walked my first Camino de Santiago, and in 2014 I retired from the pastorate to write pilgrim trekking guidebooks and form my own travel company, Pilgrim Paths, all with the goal of helping people grow in the same ways I’d grown – through travel.

Fast forward to 2023. My sister and son have joined my travel company team; I’ve teamed up with a fabulous Italian guide and his company. Now we’re ready to offer a full slate of group travel opportunities on some of the greatest trails in Europe. Here are our offerings. I hope you’ll take a look and see if one of these might be right for you.

Fabulous Tuscan scenery among olive groves and vineyards of Chianti. Fabulous towns of Lucca, Siena, and San Gimignano. >>>
One of the best parts of the Via Francigena is the summit of the Great St Bernard Pass between Switzerland and Italy.>>>
Look down on Assisi from Monte Subasio, enjoy the pleasures of Spello and Spoleto, feel the mist on your face from Cascata della Marmore, and then experience all the wonder of the Eternal City.>>>

Last year I rode from Calais to Besancon and had so much fun I wanted to share it with others. Cathedrals, canals, charming villages.>>>
The Way of St Francis in all its mountainous glory, with Santuario della Verna and Assisi as the jewels of this deeply spiritual itinerary.>>>
Our licensed guides add depth and understanding to each day. Van service allows you to focus on walking and reserves your energy to enjoy what you’re experiencing.>>>
