Bhutan - The Kingdom of Happiness

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST // Bhutan is the only country that values Gross National Happiness over Gross Domestic Product. Each year the King and the government contemplate how they can improve the happiness and wellbeing of their people, and how to protect their pristine natural landscapes.  What makes Bhutan magical - beyond the natural beauty - is the generosity you see in the eyes of the locals combined with the powerful spiritual energy that is cultivated by the monks and monasteries located throughout this tiny nation. On your Abroad Quest you will stay in beautiful accommodations and be guided by locals on how to experience the best Bhutan has to offer. This Quest includes mind-blowing cultural immersion including visits to mystical monasteries, opportunities to learn from leaders of the Bhutanese government, and experiences for deeper mindfulness, connection and team collaborations. Even the option of staying overnight in a monastery a few tourists will ever visit.

Bali - Peace & Renewal

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST // To the uninitiated, Bali is a place for surfing, massages, and Indonesian cuisine. However, for those who have taken the time to immerse themselves in the local culture and perhaps live in Bali, they quickly realize that Bali is a magical destination with a local culture that is perhaps one of the most content and peaceful on the planet.

Our Abroad Quests start off in magical Ubud - the cultural heart of Bali - and a place for deep transformation and renewal. We will begin with cultivating a daily mindfulness practice, and experiencing the rituals, art and authentic essence of Balinese culture and wisdom.     

We will then make our way down to Uluwatu, home to Bali’s towering cliffs and famous surf breaks. It is here overlooking the Indian Ocean, that we will invite you to breathe in the fresh ocean air and crystallize your visions. By the end of this Quest, you will feel grounded, recharged, and inspired for the road ahead.


Iceland - Land of Fire & Ice

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST // Iceland features mountains, glaciers, ice fields, hot springs, geysers, as well as active volcanoes. Truly a land of fire and ice!  Over a thousand years after its first settlement was formed, Iceland is still the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with over two-thirds of its nearly 400,000 population located in the southwestern part of the island.

Our Icelandic adventure begins in Reykjavik, the capital and largest city where we meet before flying north to the more remote and rugged area of the Westfjords. Isafjordur, a picturesque town perched on one of the northernmost fjords, will be our base where we will conduct our executive education sessions. Our adventure culminates with an excursion via private boat to an area inaccessible by road so that we can experience true remoteness and reflect on our lessons from the previous days. It promises to be an awe-inspiring and bonding experience for all participants.


Mt. Shasta - Land of Mystic Wonders

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST // Located in Northern California, Mount Shasta is a potentially active volcano in the West Coast’s “Ring of Fire” volcanic mountain formations. The beautiful wilderness areas include meadows, waterfalls, springs, and hiking trails.

It is also a land of legends and mystic beliefs that connect to the energy of the sacred mountain and rich Native American legends.

On your Abroad Quest your team or group will stay in rustic, yet peaceful accommodations including camping, teepees, or cabins. These venues are the perfect locations to restore wellbeing, disconnect from the distractions of modern communications, and focus on strengthening individual and group energy. 


Peru - Crystal Condor Quest

7 NIGHT QUEST// Mention Peru and one of the first images that comes to mind is the breathtaking views of Machu Picchu emerging from the mists of the surrounding mountains. Indeed, Peru is a land of wilderness – not only in terms of location, but also harkening to long ago civilizations, enduring traditions, natural phenomena, and human achievements.

Our Peruvian Quest will bring participants outside time and space and open your minds to new concepts and bonding experiences. Can you imagine a more magical place to disconnect your mind from traditional problem solving methods? To learn and practice mindfulness techniques without the constant clamoring of the digital world? Feed your adventurous spirit while receiving the finest executive education to create team and group bonding experiences that sharpen creative problem-solving skills.


Morocco - Land of the Setting Sun

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST // Bordering the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea –Morocco evokes images of souks and medieval maze-like streets, stretches of empty beaches, and stark deserts and mountains touched by Berber, Arabian and European influences.

This setting for our Quest will be in Marrakesh, where the magical energy of this city that will inspire your group or team to activate creativity and imagination. We will also go on an adventure to discover the Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains and explore the broad valleys and lush orchards with views of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. Ride a camel through a broad gorge, pause for tea in Imlil Valley, then hike to the isolated village of Ait Souka to share a meal in a Berber family’s home. An unforgettable adventure for your team or group.

Careyes - A Taste of Paradise

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST// This Quest takes place in the paradisiacal setting of Costa Careyes, located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Founded in the 1970s as a luxury bohemian enclave, Careyes is defined by a rare energy that permeates every corner. Its magic lies in the founding members’ sensibilities in combining the raw power of pristine nature with whimsical villas and an understated charm. Careyes is a place infamous for being closed off to the outside world, accessible only to those with an insider’s key and a desire to get off the grid completely.

We will be housed in the Casa Triton Estate for the duration of our stay, sleeping in a combination of luxury bungalows and bedrooms with shared palapa spaces, infinity pools, a watchtower with 360 degree views, and extensive bougainvillea gardens.


New Zealand - Wisdom of Aroha

4 - 7 NIGHT QUEST // New Zealand is one of the most photogenic places on the earth, and home to the Maori, the beautiful indigenous (tengata whenua) Polynesian peoples of New Zealand who settled on the islands more than 1,000 years ago.   

When most people visit New Zealand they enjoy the vast trekking, kayaking, and outdoor sports offered within gorgeous natural landscapes. On your Abroad Journey you will have plenty of time for recreation, and we will also take the time to immerse ourselves in local culture and traditions. 

The combination of New Zealand's quirky humor, warm hospitality, and the unique language, rich mythology, and performing arts of the Maori make a visit to New Zealand a precious lifetime memory.
