Unsettled: AMAZON

WELCOME TO UNSETTLED'S GREATEST ADVENTURE

Welcome to the Peruvian Amazon.
Your Journey into the Unknown Begins Now.

 

In the farthest western reaches of the Amazon, lies Peru’s Madre de Dios, or “Mother of God” region.

One of the world’s most remote and biodiverse hotspots, it’s a place where countless scientists, explorers, and adventurers have traveled to in order to discover what lies within it and to test what they’re made of.

It’s a place where the Andean cloud forests drop thousands of feet and kiss the upper reaches of the Amazon Rainforest. This July, Unsettled will take you into this forest by plane and boat to learn what scientists have discovered before us. We will get hands on with local conservation efforts to learn what the rainforest contributes to our lives and how we can contribute to it in return.

Each day will be filled with rich conversations inspired by boat rides deep into the jungle, interpretive hikes lead by our local guides who bring decades of experience, nightly talks on the rainforest, canopy tours, and visits to active conservation sites. Layered on top of all of this, as we step outside of our work lives and daily routines, we will reflect on and discuss how we each navigate through uncertainty in our own careers and discover meaning in our lives.

Getting there requires that we journey into one of the most inaccessible rainforests in the world. This is not a luxury safari. This is an adventure into a wilderness setting like none other on earth.

THE EXPERIENCE

Unsettled: Amazon is like nothing we’ve ever experienced at Unsettled. There is no work component. In fact, look forward to be completely disconnected for most, if not the entire, trip. That’s the point. Take inspiration from the unparalleled surroundings, your peers, and the vast knowledge that the rainforest and its local experts hold. You will learn. You will grow. You will be challenged. But the only screen you’ll see is that of your mosquito net. Sometimes, we need to disconnect to re-connect. That’s what this is about.

THE COMMUNITY

Unsettled is a community for those who embrace the unknown and value meaningful human connection. We bring together the intellectually curious who seek to replace routine with adventure, and are looking for a co-created experience diving into the unknown. You will share the adventure of a lifetime in Peru alongside a curated group of peers who hold a wealth of experience far deeper than just their careers, and join a growing community of Unsettled alum spread out over 80 countries around the world.
