UNSETTLED: 1-WEEK ADVENTURES

Unstructured. Unbounded. Unexpected.

Live More. Work Less.

Let’s face it. Group tours aren’t your thing. Us too. That’s why Unsettled’s one-week experiences twist traditional group travel into an unstructured, unbounded, and unexpected shared experience of a lifetime that pushes you to live more.

Our goal is to get lost more than it is to find our way, and offer you a curated yet flexible platform to explore a new place and push your comfort zone the way you want. It just so happens you’ll have a global community of entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals to share the journey and dive deep with, and a calendar of off-beat cultural, creative, and adventure-driven experiences to choose from. These trips are uniquely co-curated by and for our alumni, friends, and Unsettled community.

SAILING GREECE

For the ultimate Mediterranean sailing experience, it doesn’t get more extraordinary than the Greek Islands.

Expect family-style meals, epic stories, and a host of new friends from around the world…

THE UNSETTLED GLOBAL SUMMIT: SRI LANKA

One Week

To celebrate our 100th experience, we plan to hold the first ever Unsettled Global Summit to bring this community together in one place for a special global gathering. The first Summit will create an open space of possibility. Where we can just as easily organize a brainstorm session on that new venture you’ve been kicking around or put together a group kiteboarding session. While there is plenty to see and do at our beachfront location, the Unsettled Summit has been designed as an open space for you to be creative, collaborative, adventurous, and completely yourself.

March 7th – 14th, 2020

TOKYO, JAPAN

One Week

A week-long urban exploration of the hidden side of Tokyo’s neighborhoods. The days themselves will be curated but flexible; the nights unscripted and filled with possibility. You’ll balance between local experiences curated by our friends, alumni, and team, and exploring the city’s alleyways , hole-in-the-wall noodle joints, design subcultures, and extraordinary traditions.

August 31st – September 7th, 2019 [SOLD OUT]

LEBANON

One Week

Beirut is a city with a reputation. And a well-deserved one. The best nightlife in the Middle East, a booming creative scene, sweeping views of the Mediterranean, and arguably some of the best food in the world. Join us on a social adventure through the many different sides of Lebanon, hosted by our alumni!

May 9th – 16th, 2020

August 22nd – 29th, 2020

THE AMAZON, PERU

One Week

Unsettled: Amazon is like nothing we’ve ever experienced at Unsettled. In the farthest western reaches of the Amazon, lies Peru’s Madre de Dios, or “Mother of God” region. It’s a place where the Andean cloud forests drop thousands of feet and kiss the upper reaches of the Amazon Rainforest. You will learn. You will grow. You will be challenged.

August 8th – 15th, 2020

Our Experience Philosophy

Unstructured

This is not traditional group travel. We don’t follow a flag or hop on a bus. We explore, we get lost, we live in the moment. Yes, there are some key experiences we host and a deeply thoughtful curation and calendar of events to explore. However, we believe that experiences are more powerful when we step into them and take ownership over what happens in the moment. We provide the platform. You choose your own adventure.

 Unexpected

No two trips are ever the same. We engineer for serendipity, but we do not overthink it. We show up and find ways, in the moment and throughout the experience, to create secret meetups, popup adventures, or hidden ways to invite participant along for the unexpected. We take risks when they show up and invite the opportunity to push ourselves. We’ll explore some of the city’s “unmissable” sights, sounds, and adventures, but be prepared to embrace the unknown. 

Unbounded

We don’t limit ourselves in the depth of our conversations nor the outcomes we can imagine for ourselves. We remove the expectations placed on us, and create a space where you can push your comfort zones, challenge your perspectives, and discover new ways of working, living, and being. When we live and travel unbounded, we are unconstrained by limits. It’s a mindset and an approach to everything we do.

… And Still Unsettled

Don’t worry. This isn’t a free-for-all. As with any Unsettled experience, we’re obsessed with quality over quantity, and craft each experience with the intention of inspiring a deeper sense of growth, meaning, and adventure in our lives. We tap into the creativity, cultural context, local philosophy & spirituality, and innovative elements of each destination as a way to bring greater perspective and learning to our work and professional lives.

"Inspiring" "Unforgettable"

An inspiring, unforgettable experience. I absolutely loved my time with Unsettled and still keep in touch with the amazing people I met there (with reunions in 6 countries so far!). 

-Colin Decker, Creative Director

"Extraordinary"

It was an extraordinary experience, one that left me feeling affirmed, motivated and inspired. I’ve never experienced group travel in the way that Unsettled does it, and the co-curation of our time together made it so much more than just a trip.

-Shani Jamila, TED Speaker / Artist

"Life changing is an understatement"

-Rani El-Khatib, Managing Director of Dubai-based Creative Agency

"Break up the routine..."

If you’ve been wanting to break up the routine… give this experience a try. It just might prove to you that a totally new way to live is not just possible, but possibly right at your fingertips.

-Selena Welz, Senior Editor

"Raw..."

I had some of the most interesting, raw, and enlightening conversations of my life at Unsettled. For those conversations alone, the Unsettled experience has truly enriched my life!

-Jaqui Pawson, Senior Analyst
