There's a reason you Landed here.

Let’s face it. It’s no small decision.

 And, Unsettled isn’t for everyone. It’s for those looking to grow, experiment, learn, and take the unconventional path forward – whatever that means to you. We know there are a million and one ways you can talk yourself out of experiencing Unsettled.

That’s fine with us…

Then again, you came across Unsettled for a reason. You applied for a reason. And now, look at that. You’re here.  There’s nothing more we can say to convince you (nor do we want to – it’s your life, your decision), so we’ve decided to step back, and let our community speak for themselves.

We’ve created this page as a resource for you to get to know us, our community, and our experiences a bit better. You’ll find stories, recordings, testimonials and more from our participants, who come from over 80 countries and all walks of life. They were in your shoes once, and so we think they’re best qualified to share, in their own words, what they’ve found in Unsettled.


(…is what people tell us…)

Adventure on,
…and maybe we’ll see you on our next journey.

We bring together artists and entrepreneurs, designers and developers, executives and explorers. What you do is up to you, but we look for people who are interested in co-creating an experience based on 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 get lost, dig deeper, make connections, and step back, reflect, learn, and live life at its fullest.


We explore, we get lost, we live in the moment. We don’t limit ourselves in the depth of our conversations nor the outcomes we can imagine for ourselves. We remove the expectations, and create a space where you can push your comfort zones, challenge your perspectives, and discover new ways of working, living, and being. 

Ready for the adventure of a lifetime?
Email us today and we’ll get you on your next trip!

Unsettled is a global community for those who embrace the unknown and value meaningful human connection. Our mission is to inspire a lifelong pursuit of growth, meaning, and adventure through travel and shared experiences.
