How Our Guided Adventures Work

Travel can be a rewarding and transformational experience. When you get out of your head, out of your comfort zones, and into the world, amazing things tend to happen: Perspectives shift, creativity is unleashed, and things that once seemed like insurmountable challenges become incredible opportunities for growth. To facilitate those transformations, every Muddy Shoe Adventure includes a handcrafted combination of:


Physical Adventures


Cultural Experiences



Group Discussions


Personal Reflection

Throughout the program, you will be led on a journey of personal exploration, discovery, and transformation by one of our incredible Program Leaders. Your physical adventures and cultural experiences will be the catalysts for lively and inspired discussions. Daily workshops and group conversations will help you reflect on what you are learning from your adventures. Time for personal reflection will leave you feeling rejuvenated and re-energized. And optional one-on-one coaching sessions with your program leader will help you craft the perfect plan to kick-start the next chapter of your life!

Whether you are looking for ways to bring more balance into your life, want to create your own passion project, or are considering making a significant career transition, our programs can help you achieve all of your goals!

In addition to the amazing programs you'll see on our OutingsGetaways, and Expeditions pages, we love the challenge of creating a completely customized program for you and your group.
