Come With Us

We’ve Worked With

Adventure retreats for experience-seeking professionals.

Like you.

The way the world works is changing. Less and less, the divide between our work and life is eroded, to the point where ‘what you do’ and ‘who you are’ becomes all but invisible.


So be it. But if that’s the case, then playtime deserves to be more special.

Escape routine, expand your horizons and find inspiration with other amazing people


We’re building a community who work differently. Those who see ‘work hard, play hard’ as something more than going to the bar every Friday night. Those whose ambition and drive mean they not only enjoy challenging the status quo, but also the limits of their comfort zone.


Escape for 7 days of adventure co-working, and see how much better you feel for it. Get outdoors, find inspiration from the mountains, answers in the surf.


Wi-Fi, accommodation, activities, workshops – All the essentials are taken care of by us. Leaving you to collaborate on ideas, discuss concepts, share challenges…then put your work to one side, and push your comfort zone surrounded by a tribe you’ll love.


Business is an infinite game – a constant journey – so where will your next destination be?
