Stop At: Jeita Grotto, 20 km North of Beirut, Jitta Lebanon

Jeita Grotto is a natural to wonder formed over thousands of years. It is made up of two interconnected caves with karstic limestone walls that spread over an area of nine kilometres.

The grotto is split into two parts; the upper with a breathtaking view of extraordinary stone that forms curtains, columns, draperies and mushrooms at a distance of some 750m explored for 2200m, and the latter of 400m explored for almost 7800m, where you can marvel at the majestic forms of otherworldly concretions. A boat ride is offered at the lower grotto.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: The Shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon, Keserwan, Harissa Lebanon

Harissa is a mountain village in Lebanon. The village, which is located 650 meters above sea level, is home to an important Lebanese pilgrimage site, Our Lady of Lebanon. The village is located 20 km north of Beirut, and accessible from the coastal city of Jounieh either by road or by a nine-minute journey by a gondola lift, known as the "Téléférique". It attracts both pilgrims and tourists who want to enjoy views of the bay of Jounieh.

The pilgrimage site is a huge 15-ton bronze (and painted white) statue of Virgin Mary, known as Our Lady of Lebanon, with her arms outstretched. The statue was made at the end of the 19th century and inaugurated in 1908. Inside the statue's base, there is a small chapel. A huge modernistic Maronite cathedral built of concrete and glass stands right beside the statue.



Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Baatara Gorge Waterfall, Tannourine Lebanon

The Balaa gorge sinkhole (Baatara gorge waterfall) is a waterfall in the Tannourine. This unexpected waterfall drops 255 metres into a cave and falls behind three natural bridges, which raise one above the other and overhang the chasm descending into Mount Lebanon.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Telefrique Harisa, Kesrouane, Lebanon

One of Lebanon’s oldest and most visited tourist attractions, the gondolas of the Teleferique aerial cableway are a trip down memory lane, from a pioneering venture in 1965 to a beautifully preserved modern-day attraction offering breathtaking views of the bay of Jounieh and the surrounding city, the Teleferique is an impressive testimony to time gone by, one meter at a time.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Churches of Harissa, Harissa, Jounieh Lebanon

This little chapel is the famous place of worship and contains the statue of the Mother of the light sculptured on the Century Anniversary of the Immaculate Conception and fifty years after founding the shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon in 1904.

This chapel forms the lower section of the tower upon which the statue of Our Lady of Lebanon stands.
