We meet at the airport at 3.50pm for our Air Malta flight departing at 5.50pm and arriving in Lourdes at 8.15pm. From here we leave by coach to our 3 Star Superior Hotel Lys de Marie in Lourdes. We check into our rooms, have dinner and rest for the night. 
Tuesday

Breakfast followed by mass. We will visit the three Basilicas of the Sanctuary and the Grotto. We will then continue to visit other places of interest in Lourdes including the Boly Mill, where Bernardette was born and raised until the age of 10.  We then visit the Cachot – a room in an abandoned prison where Bernardette’s family lived, and the Parish Church where she was baptised. We will also go to St. Pius X Underground Basilica. Here a group photo will be taken as a memory of this pilgrimage. Lunch at the hotel followed by an optional excursion to Pont d’Espagne, forming part of the Pyrenees National Park. Here we will have the opportunity to see beautiful waterfalls and wonderful mountainous scenery. If time permits, one can opt to take the seggovia (extra) to go visit Lac de Gaube – a 3298 metre above-sea level lake situated on the highest point in the Pyrenees. In the evening, dinner at the hotel and afterwards, one can attend ‘Bernardette de Lourdes – Why Me’ (entrance extra) which will start showing from the 1st of July. This musical is presented by international producers and reconstructs Bernardette Soubirous’s story.

Wednesday

 Breakfast and together with thousands of other pilgrims, we take part in the International Mass in St. Pius X Underground Basilica. Here a group photo will be taken as a memory of this pilgrimage.  Lunch at the hotel and after, we will go on an afternoon optional excursion to Gavarnie, a mountainous village in the Hautes-Pyrenees region found 32 miles from Lourdes and 1360 metres above sea level. Before we arrive, we will stop on Pont du Napoleon for a wonderful view. There are about 180 persons living in Gavanrie with a splendid 422 metre waterfall starting from river Gave and passing through the Grotto of Massabielle. Dinner at the hotel and then we participate in the procession Aux Flambeaux.

Thursday

Breakfast and today’s full day excursion will take us to Artouste and Col du Pourtalet. We start our day by passing through the villages of St. Pe’ de Bigorre, Lestelle Betharram and Bruges-Capbis-Mifaget. Before we visit Louvie Juzon, we stop to admire the panoramic view of Ossau’s valley. We then pass through the small villages of Louvie-Juzon, Bielle, Louvie-Soubiro, Beost and Laruns. The last village that we shall pass through is Gabas, surrounded by forests, until we reach the cable cars of Pic De La Sagett and Lag d’Artouste. Here one can go on an unusual adventure by taking a 15minute trip on a cable car to Col De La Sagette followed by the famous ‘little train of Artouste’, a trip taking around an hour done on a trenino that takes you around the mountains that separate France and Spain amongst other beautiful views of the highest points in Pyrenees Atlantiques -1989 metres (Cable car and trenino extra) We highly recommend this wonderful experience. Our last stop will be in Col du Pourtalet which is also situated on the border between France and Spain where will have some time for shopping. N.B Those going on this excursion will be given a packed lunch from the hotel. In the evening, dinner at the hotel.
Friday

Breakfast followed by mass. Today we will have the opportunity to visit the baths located near the Grotto to reconcile and pray for our intention followed by the Via Crucis. We return to the hotel and we check-out (which should be done till 12.30pm) and have lunch. We will then have some free time to enjoy our last few hours in Lourdes. At 6.30pm we leave for Lourdes Airport for our Air Malta flight departing at 9.00pm and arriving back in Malta at 11.15pm.
