Halal tourism well aligned
Certain travel agencies still have to offer kibbutz holidays in Israel. There are also specialized agencies for Christian pilgrimages to Rome or Santiago de Compostela. For some time other agencies have been offering pilgrimages to Mecca. It seems that Muslims go a little further by presenting halal stays. Why not ! Everyone has his or her own freedom of belief as long as it does not harm others.

The spa and wellness centre is the ideal place to relax after an intense day of skiing and offers spaces dedicated to women and men (sauna, hammam, spa, whirlpool/jacuzzi).
And if Turkey doesn’t suit you, there is Switzerland… .
This car-free village lies in the middle of a spectacular landscape in the beautiful Jungfrau region.
