A small city with a magnetic charm, Porto is truly a place to enjoy life. Whether you want to sample Europe's best surf and cheapest wine (ever wonder where Port comes from?), or mingle with the emerging startups, designers, and coworking spaces sprouting up across town, from the moment you arrive you'll see why Porto is one of Europe's rising hubs and best kept secrets.

Unsettled is inviting 25 people from creative and entrepreneurial backgrounds to live, work, and explore the historic city of Porto together. Forget the chaotic big city life. Escape the crowds and immerse yourself in Porto for an unforgettable month of coworking, coliving, and creative resetting. Wake up to a sunrise stroll along the banks of the River Douro and the medieval Ribeira district. Wind down the days getting lost with friends among the cobblestone alleys, chic bars, and rich architecture that blends past and present.

Creatives. Entrepreneurs. Artists. Freelancers. People going through intentional career transitions, and asking the big questions. We bring together the intellectually curious who seek to replace routine with adventure, and embrace the unknown. You will share the experience of a lifetime in Porto 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 40 countries around the world. 

The Unsettled trip ranks on the best trips I’ve ever taken (and I’ve been to 75 countries). Great organization and curation with the ability to take a bit of a leadership role in the activities. All in all it is hard to find a better group and trip.

"Stunning 18th- and 19th-century buildings, new indie bars and restaurants and a laid-back vibe, facilitated by the excellent wine — it’s hard to find anything to dislike about Porto. Its walkable center is crammed with cobbled streets and balconies adorned with flowerpots, and the city’s love of food and design is apparent... An ideal day in Porto combines both the grandeur of its history and its up to-the-minute cool."
-The New York Times, 36 Hours in Porto
