The Ananda Pilgrimage Experience

Get into a profound state of flow and upliftment

Certain places in the world have a divine power that can bless and transform you. In such places, even the soil vibrates with higher consciousness.

To make the most of your visit there, it is best to eliminate distractions, to travel with uplifting and like-minded company, and to follow a wise and experienced guide.

That’s why we’ve been leading pilgrimages for almost 50 years—to take care of the details and help you have profound, unforgettable spiritual journeys.

Relax and focus on the inner experience

Our carefully curated itineraries allow our guests to be in a gentle state of flow, supported by our hosts, helping you connect with the holiness of each site.

Go deep with inspiring leaders and experienced guides

Our Ananda hosts as well as the in-country guides serve with joy and focus to inspire you to further deepen your inner spiritual life.

“Meditations in the morning, chanting and selected readings as we approached each destination helped us to prepare for deeply spiritual experiences.”

Join us to experience the divine blessings of pilgrimage.

“The benefit of pilgrimage to holy places is not because of their rich history, but for the fact that divine blessings can be experienced when visiting them.”
