This is supposed to be a pilgrimage.
A pilgrimage is defined as a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance. Typically it is a journey to a shrine or other location of importance to a person's beliefs and faith, although sometimes it can be a metaphorical journey into someone's own beliefs.
