Medjugorje is a small town among the beautiful mountains of Bosnia-Herzegovina, where, it is believed, the Virgin Mary has been appearing to six visionaries since 1981, under the title of the Queen of Peace. As of today, the site has not been officially approved by the Church; however, Rome has signaled acceptance of the initial visions that took place and is stills studying the claims of the ongoing visions. While the site continues to be studied by Rome, Catholics are permitted to travel to Medjugorje on pilgrimage for spiritual enrichment.

Since 1981, about 40 million pilgrims have traveled to Medjugorje. Visitors to the site describe the profound sense of peace that prevails there. They feel truly touched by Heaven during their stay. Deep spiritual growth, the return to the sacraments, a new commitment to prayer, the discovery of a religious vocation, conversion to the Catholic faith, and physical healing are some of the fruits of visiting Medjugorje reported by many, many pilgrims. Indeed, more people go to Confession in Medjugorje than in any other place in the world.

The cost of our pilgrimage is $2495, which includes the following: Round-trip airfare between USA and Croatia, departing from Seattle; all taxes and airline fuel surcharges; ground transfers between the airport and Medjugorje; breakfast and dinner daily; soft drinks and wine served with dinner; services of a bilingual tour guide; seven nights’ accommodations in double rooms at visionary Mirjana Soldo’s guesthouse in Medjugorje; meetings with visionaries and parish priests (pending availability); and visits to all places of interest in Medjugorje.

For those wishing to reserve a single room, the cost of the single room supplement is $290. A land-only option is also available for those who would like to make their own arrangements for air transportation, in case they are not departing from Seattle or they wish to spend more time in Europe, or for some other reason. The cost of the land-only package is $1,095.00 (double occupancy). Land-only passengers can meet the group at the airport in Dubrovnik and can take the ground transport from there to Medjugorje. Likewise, they can take the transport from Medjugorje to Dubrovnik with the group at the end of the trip. Or they are welcome to make their own arrangements for arriving in Medjugorje, if they wish.
