Unsettled is a community for those who embrace uncertainty and value meaningful human connection. Who believe that feeling a little bit “unsettled” is a positive impulse for change, innovation, and discovery. We help you break out of your routine, get inspired, and grow.

Join us in any of our destinations and get everything you need to be connected, comfortable, and collaborative: private accommodations, shared workspace, local experts, curated events, and an immersive community experience. With over a dozen locations, and alumni from 80+ countries, Unsettled experiences are designed to take your work, life, and adventures beyond traditional borders. 

For many of us, it’s like finding a second home. So welcome home….

“I’ve achieved a lot in my professional life, but sometimes you have to take a big step to shift things around… My month with Unsettled gave me an incredible opportunity to pause, review, analyze, and change my routine.”

Zarko Lelovac

Ex-Corporate Lawyer, Serbia

I live for the connections I make with amazing people and traveling to unbeatable destinations; it keeps me on an edge. In the last few months, I have found the Unsettled way of living, embraced it, and I’m still able to leave some space for the unexpected. My first Unsettled adventure was to the Amazon, then Tuscany, and now Cape Town… and all I can say is that it manages to surprise me every time.

Olga Gonzalez

Teacher, Mexico

“Imagine a group of 25 diverse people coming together from all over the world, led by a couple of locals who know their cities inside and out… add some great accommodations, creative workspaces, 30 days of adventure, and you have Unsettled. You’ll leave with friendships and experiences that will last a lifetime. “

Our Guiding Philosophy

To guide people on a quest of life, meaning and adventure. Fuel inspiration, exploration and discovery of the world around us. Create value that enriches and improves the human experience. Seek purpose and meaning, wherever it may lie. Aspire to always push the boundaries of the unknown. Think differently about tomorrow, and seize the opportunities today that will make it possible.


We bring together artists and entrepreneurs, designers and developers, executives and explorers. What you work on is up to you, but we look for people who are interested in co-creating a work culture based on productivity, collaboration, growth and adventure.


Place is not simply a destination. Place is defined by the meaning we ascribe to it. We curate experiences in places where you can (1) work productively, (2) build deep local connections, and (3) step back, reflect, learn, and live life at its fullest.


We design an organizing purpose that loosely guides each experience. This purpose usually incorporates elements of local culture, art, history, and creative and entrepreneurial economies. We look for learning opportunities that enrich our experience and our lives.
