About this trip

Join us as we embark on our very first Umrah Retreat! We invite you on this journey where we'll learn about the inner and outer dimensions of Umrah with Mustafa Briggs. We'll perform our Umrah together and apart. It will be an opportunity to connect to Allah, ourselves and fellow believers. We've curated an experience that combines a spiritual and adventurous journey and we hope that you benefit from it.

Vuslat in Turkish means 'A union or a reunion after being apart for a long time with one's beloved'. We embark on this journey with the intention to ground our visions to Allah's throne and seek his Mercy. Toska in Russian means 'An immense ache for nothing and everything all at once. An anguish from the bottom of the heart'. This longing is connected to the distance we create between ourselves and our Creator, it is our intention, on this retreat, to bridge this gap within and traverse it with ease and grace.

Most people visit Saudi Arabia to perform their Hajj and Umrah, not realizing the land is diverse, beautiful and full of surprises.  We invite you to explore parts unknown. We'll begin in Mecca, make our way to Jeddah, explore the desert and canyons of Al Ula and finish off in Madinah, the city of our Beloved Prophet (PBUH). 

We'll pray, explore historical Jeddah, Mecca and Madinah, hike, bike, shop and stargaze You'll meet various locals and entrepreneurs who are doing wonderful things for the advancement of their communities. We've planned a few surprises that we won't share with you just yet.... Bismillah!

Join us as we travel inwardly and outwardly, with heart open and spirit ready insh'Allah!

Burgundy signals magnificence. It appeals to our inner regality, stirring us to reclaim our best selves. In this spirit we invite you to experience more than an “Escape”. This is a path to enriching yourself while giving back to local communities. This is a chance to ground yourself in a graceful adventure and, through it, discover universal roots.


Travelling with Burgundy Roots is truly a unique and amazing experience. You can immediately feel the effort that Wafaa and the team have taken to curate specially chosen opportunities that would not typically be accessible / come to mind for the average traveler. Add to that the bonus of sharing the trip with wonderful souls from all over the world - it was definitely one to remember I would highly recommend Burgundy Roots for those who are seeking to travel with purpose - looking for a sustainable and fulfilling journey with immersion in the local culture. The added benefit of being with the group makes it especially ideal for those who may not be used to travelling - all you have to do is bring your luggage and good vibes and the rest is taken care of for you

I'm thinking back on this trip and missing it so much! When I went on this trip, I wished for an imaan boost, meeting new individuals, beautiful views, deep conversations. I can say that all my expectations have been met, and exceeded. I felt safe in the group. The group wasn't too big, you had time to get to know everyone on some level. The team were very helpful and professional. Thanks to Wafa's way of coordinating the trip from planning and interviews to catering and all the activities, this truly felt like a 5-star trip. I love that the trip had an Islamic dimension to it, the lectures with Mustafa Briggs were very interesting and subjects were carefully chosen. It was a very special feeling to be a part of the lectures and prayers. I remember thinking of the Hadith that describes how angels surrounds a group of muslims who gathers for the remembrance of Allah. There is a lot to say about how amazing this experience was. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who is looking for an amazing getaway. One week was the perfect amount of time. The food was amazing, the snack stops aswell

Going to Jamaica with Dr. Briggs and Wafa couldn’t have gone any better. I met many incredible individuals, each one with inspiring life stories. It was a great way to meet wanderlust souls from across the globe. The soul rebel trip was spiritually uplifting, physically and emotionally relaxing, and a great way to explore the Jamaican culture and heritage. Lastly, the food was amazing. Get out there and enjoy Jamaica with Burgundy Roots!

Being surrounded by like-minded people from all around the world who I can now call friends is an experience in itself. The late-night bonfire in Siwa, deep and fun conversations on the bus rides, the beautiful architecture of Cairo's mosques, the home-cooked food at the ecolodge, and the classes with Dr Butch Ware and Mustafa Briggs were only a few of the many unforgettable moments we got to experience and which I'll cherish forever! Anyone who is looking for a memorable experience abroad and for making friends of a lifetime shouldn't hesitate any longer to go with Burgundy Roots!

I have been on two Burgundy roots trips so far and I must say, the itineraries are very well thought out. Wafa and her team pay attention to every detail and leave no stone unturned to ensure a truly unique, hands-off and stress-free experience for all attendees. You get to visit some hidden gems , spend time in nature, enjoy delicious food with amazing COMPANY and learn more about Islam while you’re at it. Such a beautiful, spiritually uplifting experience! BEST TRIP(S) EVER!

Traveled with Burgundy Roots this summer to Jamaica and it was everything!!!! Wafa and her team were great! All the experiences and people I meet were a whole vibe. If you're thinking about traveling with them just do it, it will be so worth it.

The Prophetic Nutrition retreat in Jamaica was probably the best vacation I've ever been on. Wafaa and her team were incredible hosts whose carefully crafted and detail oriented itinerary provided a lifetime experience on the most beautiful island with the most beautiful locals. If you're thinking about joining Wafaa & the burgundy roots team on any of their travels, this is your sign. Go!! You will be planning your next retreat before it is even over! Much love to the team xo-
