The Program

Discover your Heritage
Your trip will be filled with the wonders of Lebanon, complete with a full tour of the country, along with tailored activities that will truly bring you closer to your heritage, including:

Village Visit

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what could be better than seeing the real thing. Visiting your village of origin will bring back memories you never knew you had.

Learning Arabic

Language is in essence the soul of a culture. While Arabic is a widely spoken language, the Lebanese dialect is specific to a shared identity, and a 2-hour course will familiarize you with the language of your ancestors.

Lebanese Cooking Class

Learn how to make stuffed vine leaves, Hummus, Tabbouleh, and many more local dishes, and take the wonderful smells and flavors of the Lebanese cuisine back with you as a constant reminder of your true home.

Oriental Dance class

Learn how to ‘move like Shakira’ in an oriental dance class or bring your whole family together in the traditional Lebanese synchronized dance of Dabke.

Networking

This is not your typical conference; here you will have the opportunity to discuss your origins with others of the Lebanese Diaspora over a 1-hour assembly, and also learn how to reclaim your Lebanese Nationality.
Discover Lebanon’s Beauty and Culture

There is much to be seen in Lebanon. Its rich culture and history make it a perfect destination for all travelers. Visit historical sites, trek the lebanese mountain trail, or hang out in local cafes and areas, and you will experience the best that Lebanese has to offer.

Beirut

Beirut City

Our beautiful buzzing capital city will be your first stop. Your tour will cover the iconic Pigeon Rock (a picture worth taking home), the National Museum, where prehistoric, Roman, Byzantine, and other collections have been safeguarded for many years, famous religious landmarks and alternative museums, and of course the shopping and eating districts that liven up Beirut. But make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy Beirut’s thrilling nightlife scene that is packed with dance clubs, restaurants, and local pubs.

Mount Lebanon

Jeita

The Jeita Grotto, featured on our one Lira currency and stamps, was also a candidate for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. It boasts two beautiful caves of limestone that have been forming for thousands of years. Located a mere 20km north of Beirut, you can take a quick stroll around its upper galleries, and then a calming boat ride through its 6km long river cave.

Harissa


One can only imagine the majestic scene that travellers arriving by sea saw of The Statue of Our Lady of Lebanon in the early 1900s, as it stood perched at the top of a hill jutting straight out of the Mediterranean Sea. A French creation erected in 1907, this 13-ton statue is a sight not to be missed.

Faqra


Carved out of living rock, the great temple of Faqra looms high and creates a backdrop of pure beauty against the rocky cliffs. Not only famous for being a summer and winter destination, Faqra is also unique for its long-standing temples, columns, altars, and rock-cut tombs. It is a cultural and historical destination that will provide you will a cool summer breeze in the summer and direct access to snow and winter sports in the winter.

North Lebanon

Byblos

It is not often that you can walk through the third oldest continually-inhabited places on Earth, still humming with the sounds of daily life: grocers, local shops, and school children. The beauty of Byblos’ populated small alleyways and side streets is only surpassed by the wide array of archaeological sites like the Crusader Castle and the Roman Theater, as well as old churches, mosques, museums, and souks.

Tripoli

Explore the capital of the North, also Lebanon’s second largest city, where medieval sites blend into a lively and friendly metropolis. Many of Tripoli’s principal monuments go back to the early 14th century such as the Great Mosque, the Mosque of Taynal, and many of the schools and souks.

Batroun

You will not have had lemonade until you’ve tried the famous Lemonade from Batroun, sourced directly from its many citrus groves that share their soil with vineyards and lush mountains. Batroun is also a major destination for religious tourism with both Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox historical churches tucked away in its hills. But that’s not all Batroun has to offer; it has one of the most beautiful coastlines in Lebanon, with beach resorts and a vibrant nightlife that bring out the best of the Mediterranean.  

Anfeh

A northern getaway, with blue and white houses, and clear waters - reminiscent of Greek islands - this town is the perfect escape from the buzzing cities around. This fishing village offers you the wonderful hospitality, best known across the Mediterranean. Surrounded by beautiful landscapes, the sunset view in Anfeh alone is worth the trip. Fresh fish, lovely people, and historical ruins are but a few of the great things that await you here.

Ehden

Ehden is a lovely quaint town situated in the heart of Lebanon’s Northern mountains, and said to trace back to the son of Noah. Once you get there, Al Midan, Ehden’s historic public square, is where you want to be, surrounded by characteristic Lebanese architecture, religious sites, as well as cafes, sweet shops and restaurants.

Qadisha Valley

In the serenity of the Qadisha valley are old monasteries grafted into the mountainside, built hundreds of years ago as sanctuaries for spiritual communities. It is one of the most picturesque valleys in Lebanon, known by ‘Wadi Qannoubin’ and located in the Northern part of Lebanon. A walk or hike around this valley will refresh your soul.

The Cedars

Also known as ‘The Cedars of God’, this forest was revered by many civilizations, and has been mentioned several times in the Bible. The cedar tree, which now stands as the symbol of Lebanon, will have you marveling at its beauty and strength; some trees are now over 1000 years old. Can you imagine what stories those trees could tell, if only they could talk?

Besharreh

The hometown of Gibran Khalil Gibran, Besharreh embodies all that he found beautiful and inspiring in Lebanon. A mountainous and heavenly town that boasts of history, culture, natural beauty and much more, it will stimulate you in every way, and instill in you a feeling of wonder and awe. Start this inspiring journey with a visit to the Gibran museum, which encompasses a considerable collection of his works and personal items, and end it with a meditative walk around this peaceful town.

 

Beqaa Valley

Baalbek

The Temple of Jupiter in Baalbek is one of the best preserved Roman sites in the world, and is surrounded by a city of old ruins and artifacts that conjure images of several civilizations come and gone. A tour at sunset is guaranteed to mesmerize you, forcing you to put down your phones and your cameras and to revel in the magnificence of this ancient city.

Zahle

Self-styled as "The City of Wine and Poetry", Zahle is famous for its prosperous wine production, and being the birthplace of many Lebanese poets. This red-tiled city, the largest in the Beqaa, is settled between snowcapped mountains in the winter and kept cool and dry during the summer seasons due to its elevation. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy the fresh air of the city and the sharp wit of the Zahlewies.

Anjar 
Lebanon is loaded with historical sites from different civilizations and eras, often one on top of the other, but Anjar is different; it is exclusively one period: the Umayyad. Slender columns, fragile arches, and long walkways set Anjar apart and give it a special kind of beauty. Set against a background of rugged nearby mountains, the historical charm of Anjar is the perfect atmosphere to indulge in your photography skills and make the best of a day out.

Shouf

Beiteddine

Meaning ‘the house of faith’, this historic town is particularly known for the palace of the same name that was built by Emir Bechir El Chehab II, who had a keen interest in preserving the surrounding beauty. During your visit you will be able to enjoy stimulating museums, explore rooms that have been kept as they are for decades, and stroll through lush gardens, all while you are within a palace that seems to blend seamlessly into its natural surroundings. Now, the summer residence of the Lebanese President, this palace will stand strong for generations to come.

Deir El Qamar

A charming traditional village with a wealth of natural watersprings, Deir El Qamar is a unique town. It has preserved so much of its Lebanese authenticity, like its strong stone houses, walled gardens, and old steps. A perfect day in Deir El Qamar includes a sip of the fountain spring in the main square, a walk through its delightful pedestrian alleyways, and perhaps a stop for some delicious ice cream.

Barouk

A taste of Barouk apples may last a lifetime with you, and that’s only one of the many succulent fresh fruits you can enjoy in this town. It has been known as ‘the land of good’ owing to the generous natural spring of ‘Nabeh el Barouk’, but Barouk’s main appeal stems from its proximity to enchanting nature, like the Shouf Cedar Reserve, and several rivers and springs that surround it.

South Lebanon

Sidon

The old souks in Sidon are still buzzing with local sellers and craftspeople, named ‘khan el franj’, it was built in the 17th century, and still caters to every visitor’s needs. Sidon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and shares its name with the grandson of Noah. A seafaring city, it is enlightened by its diverse people and sites, making it a truly exciting first stop in the south.

Jezzine

The heart of the southern mountains, Jezzine is a sanctuary of pine forests and mountain peaks. Spend a few days there to breathe in the fresh mountain air, and mingle with the local artisans famous for their handmade cutlery and daggers adorned with decorative inlays. And be sure not to miss the shrine of Our Lady of the Waterfall.

Tyre

Loved by fishermen and history enthusiasts alike, the historic town of Tyre was a great Phoenician port city that ruled over the seas. It is now the fourth largest city in Lebanon and home to one of the country’s major ports. In Tyre you can explore the ancient sites, such as the Roman Hippodrome, or dive into its pristine blue waters after a bountiful meal of fish and Hummus. And the shores have secrets of their own, put on a snorkel and discover toppled down Roman columns and stones, left in the sea after several earthquakes hit the region in the past.

Qana

It is a site to be visited for many reasons: Qana is said to be the site where Jesus performed his first miracle and regularly met with his disciples in rock caves that may still hide great religious treasures. And Qana is also a beautiful agricultural town in the south of Lebanon that is home to a diverse and hospitable people, who have seen it all, from the early days of Jesus Christ to the modern days of Lebanon.
Lebanese Summer
The Lebanese summer is magical; there are activities that suit every desire. Local Festivals fill your calendar with opportunities to listen to local and international artists, eat local produce, and dance to traditional and electronic music. Or plan your own festivities at any of the wonderful beach and mountain resorts with your family and friends. Take a drive across the coast, and hike the Lebanon mountain trail. Whatever you decide to do during a Lebanese summer, you will always be wishing you had time to do more, with each activity infusing you with its own magical memory.
